Board the good ship Faxi for a trip from Reykjavik Harbor to look for puffins. They can be found on the bird island of Akurey near Reykjavik. The charismatic puffins arrive in Iceland in April and depart at the end of August. During the breeding season, Akurey is populated by over 15,000 pairs of puffins. A puffin lays one egg per year and keeps the same mate every season. Rearing the chick is shared by both parents. The boat comes extremely close to the island, providing an excellent photo opportunity for our passengers. (Remember to bring your binoculars!)
Note: Puffin sightings not guaranteed.
