Boat Tour to Skalanes Bird Cliff

Cruise Seyðisfjörður's namesake fjord through some of the most extraordinary countryside in east Iceland, stopping along the way to observe the natural beauty and wildlife. The fjord is more than 10 miles long and couldn't be more photogenic. While you will see the remains of the now-abandoned fishing village of Brimnes and a lone farm here and there, most of the scenery will be undeveloped and uninhabited. You can expect to pass thundering waterfalls spilling over the cliffs that line the fjord and forests blanketing the distant mountains.


During a stop at Dwarf's Rock, you will hear the legend of how this oddly shaped pointed boulder came to rest at its present location. The area is a breeding ground for black-legged kittiwakes, a coastal bird that nests on steep cliffs. Puffins are even more common, and you can expect to see hundreds of them nesting among the huge colony of seabirds at Skálene cliff.


Note: This tour includes approximately 20 minutes of walking to/from the boat. Participants should be able to navigate 5 steps to board the boat, there is no restroom available. It is not available to guests who utilize a wheelchair. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Casual, weather-appropriate, warm layered clothing and comfortable, flat, non-slippery walking shoes are suggested.
