The island's vast landscape has long been known. Sailing through the magnificent cliff walls and observing the entire bird life is one of the best experiences the island can give. The mind often reaches to the island life when humans were hunting for eggs and catching food, which was considered a good livelihood here along with the fish in the sea. There are great connections to nature in this trip and if you think about how young the island is and many rock formations when it came to being, then this is a truly unique gem and leaves a lot of memories.
The history of the islands is very rich and exploring the island also on land and going over the most popular places then you get all the best from Heimaey. A guide from the Westman Islands readily tells the facts and mixes with stories of the people who live or live here.
