4.8 - Excellent Based on 6 reviews
Excellent!
Björn From Norway On
4 - Very Good
“The tour was very well done with excellent accommodations. We saw many of the high points of Iceland that we likely would not have found on our own.”
Fantastic!
Chris From USA On
5 - Excellent
“Our guide, Julia, was absolutely fantastic. She was so knowledgeable on such a range of subjects, and really took care of the members of the group. As soon as she figured out that we were avid walkers, she challenged us with excellent short hikes. I think the mix of information and activities was clearly explained ahead of time, and we got exactly what we were expecting. Loved the museum visits, loved the time at outdoor sights, and really enjoyed the information from our wonderful guide in between. Our bus driver (I think named Gudmundur?) was also tremendously skilled.”
Super experience!!

The destination is Heimaey Island. The largest of the Westmans, Heimaey is also the only inhabited island. Visit the windy Storhofdi Point with its fantastic views over the area. (Between mid-May and the beginning of August you might get to see puffins here.)
