The crew were really helpful and it was exciting to see the puffins and a whale in the water. Was able to learn a bit about the history of Reykjavik and being dressed in viking gear really helped me to feel like a viking A+.

We spent a great couple of hours with these nice guys learning about Vikings, watching Reykjavik from the sea and listening to sounds of the waves hitting the wooden ship. It was a meditative experience and now I finally love wool!
