Vestmannaeyjar, Westman Islands are a cluster of islands that can only be described as a wonder of nature, just a few decades ago there was a volcanic eruption on the main island and a part of the town was buried under the lava.
Vestmannaeyjar, Westman Islands are a cluster of islands that can only be described as a wonder of nature, just a few decades ago there was a volcanic eruption on the main island and a part of the town was buried under the lava.
There is no way to describe the power of nature when it hits a small town like this but the towns people fought the volcano and won (or at least a little bit as they were able to save a part of the town and harbor) so we will visit the Eldheimar Museum for some inside information from the locals about the devastating eruption.
A day tour to this place is a must as it is truly amazing to see the landscape and how the people have rebuilt the town and their lives around this volcano site.
In the summer the island is of course one of the best spots to see the puffins and get close to them and the Beluga Whale Sanctuary is another great way to get close to the wildlife surrounding Iceland.

Vestmannaeyjar private day tour


Vestmannaeyjar, Westman Islands are a cluster of islands that can only be described as a wonder of nature, just a few decades ago there was a volcanic eruption on the main island and a part of the town was buried under the lava. There is no way to describe the power of nature when it hits a small town like this but the towns people fought the volcano and won (or at least a little bit as they were able to save a part of the town and harbor) so we will visit the Eldheimar Museum for some inside information from the locals about the devastating eruption. A day tour to this place is a must as it is truly amazing to see the landscape and how the people have rebuilt the town and their lives around this volcano site. In the summer the island is of course one of the best spots to see the puffins and get close to them and the Beluga Whale Sanctuary is another great way to get close to the wildlife surrounding Iceland. We will start early from the city as we need to catch the ferry from Landeyjahöfn to reach the main island Heimaey, we do have the option of joining a RIB boat tour while we are there which is highly recommended, we will also stop for lunch where you can get some traditional Icelandic dishes made in a modern way. Jump aboard and we will take you on an epic adventure around the islands.

  1. Christian was our guide and he went out of his way to find a sculpture that we were looking for. Besides that, he was incredibly knowledgeable, and fun to talk to! He asked us what else we wanted to see and he went out of his way to find a unique artist co-op where we met local artists! We truly enjoyed spending the day with him!
