We took the bus tour because it was cheaper and we were travelling on a budget. We happened to be the only two persons who signed up for the bus tour that day in late May 2013. Instead of cancelling it, they gave us a private tour on a minibus with a very knowledgeable guide/driver, who not only filled us... More

It was a very comfortable boat tour, easy and showing everything in detail. The sea water changed its colour from steel greyish to robin's egg blue, puffins and many kinds of seagulls, beautiful and picturesque geological formations - what a pleasure to make it before going to Eyjafjallajökull ! We started at 7 a.m. from Reykjavík, so we could cross... More

We took the bus tour and were impressed with the guide Alfred because he experienced the outbreak of the volcano himself as a teenager. Thus, he could provide us with very personal memories and made the tour all the more authentic. The bus takes you to all ends of the small island and stops several times. You can get out... More

This two-hour tour by boat around Westman Island close to Heimaey offered close up looks at a wide variety of bird life, plus Orcas (Killer Whales) and very interesting volcanic seashore.

Thank you so much for this fantastic boat trip. Close up views of the bird cliffs and an excellent commentary from the Captain. We were unable to complete the trip because of the high winds but that was to our good fortune. The Captain spotted some activity in the ocean which we went to explore. And we were treated to...

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.
