When we got to the island (in July) we had the intent to walk it ourselves, but after a while we realized we didn't want to do that, especially as the weather turned bad - rainy, windy, cold. So we decided to do the Viking Bus Tour. Best decision. We were only there for a day (we did the eagle... More

This trip is well worth the time and money. We had an amazing time, saw loads and learned much. Just be careful about checking which pier the boat leaves from - we almost missed our trip because we waited where instructed by the person we purchased our tickets from.

Had a clear day for this trip and without a doubt was the highlight of our visit to the island. The guide was very informative and seemed genuinely interested in what he was saying which makes all the difference. The views were staggering, hard to take it all in between the beautiful islands, wildlife, and majestic caves. It did get... More

Yes, the captain does play his sax in the cave and it is beautiful. Lots of history of this Island which is still being formed by the forces of nature. The commentary was very interesting and in both Icelandic and English. We even saw orca whales so that was unexpected. Thanks to Eyhron who showed me where the puffins nest... More

We stayed overnight on the island and loved every minute of it. The people are so kind and so down to earth. A hidden treasure from the world. The tour around the island was perfect and the saxophone in the cave at the end was the icing on the cake.

This was a very pleasant sight-seeing and bird-watching boat trip round the island. The weather was rather breezy but not unpleasant. We saw guillimots, kittiwakes, fulmars and lots of puffins. My favourite part was when the captain demonstrated the acoustics of a cave on the was back into harbour by playing "Cherry Pink and Appleblossom White" on his saxophone. Brilliant!

Great ride around the Westmann Islands. The views you get from the water are nothing short of amazing. The final stop in the sea cave in the harbor is memorable.

I booked the tour in advance and had high expectations but I had bad luck with the weather. And because of the bad weather I couldn't conclude the tour and the Viking Tours took me back to the port to catch the last ferry to the country at around 2PM without giving me any compensation for not concluding the tour....
