What To Expect
Vestmannaeyjar, or The Westman Islands, are truly a wonder of Nature. The youngest island of the Vestmannaeyjar celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2003 and the oldest one is close to 40,000 years old!
We will drive towards the south to the new pier at Bakkafjara and take a 20 minute tour with the ferry to the islands. Once there we will be greeted by a local guide and join a bus tour around Heimaey island. We will then visit the puffins in Storhofdi and walk up to the crater of a volcano that erupted only a few years ago as well as exploring the flora of the new lava field.
After a lunch break, we will join a boat cruise where we will see many of the wonders of the Vestmannaeyjar nature. Colorful ocean caves, millions of seabirds and occasionally during the summer, groups of whales. On the return from the cruise we will enjoy instrumental music in the natural echo of the ocean cave Klettshellir.
