The island boat tour is an interesting overview of the island's geology so worth the time and money. However, the size of the boat compared to the size of puffins prohibit close viewing. You can see the birds from a distance but that is all....More

Are whale watching tours offered in March? We're considering a stay in Hella and we're mapping out area options for day-time activities (milking the 5-6 hours of daylight!). Thank you!

Has anyone done the trip out to Surtsey? If so, could you provide some input on your tour? How long is it? Is the water rough? Is it worth the time? I would love to see the island. Do the guides speak in English? I know that tourist are not allowed but I would love to see the island from a far.

Viking tours offers a number of possibilities. Since we will be arriving by cruise ship, I'm not sure we really want to take a boat trip around the island. However, you mentioned a historical tour with Alfred which might be of more interest to us. I didn't see a reference to that tour on their website. Could you clarify .. what is the exact name of that tour and some details about it would be appreciated. Thank you.
