Vestmannaeyjar

We definitely recommend checking out Vestmannaeyjar, or the "Westman Islands" to see things you won't find anywhere else in Iceland on this unique cluster of islands!
"Something for everyone; culture, nature, festivals...and puffins!"

This place is often overlooked by travellers, which is understandable, us living on the mainland sometimes forget it exists too, but it's definitely a place worth visiting for at least one day. 

Only one of the islands is inhabited, Heimaey (or "Home Island"), and from there the entire population had to evacuate in 1973 due to a massive volcanic eruption. Luckily every single person survived!

Not only are the islands rich in history but they also happen to be where you'll find the world's largest puffin colony, giving you an opportunity to visit these adorable little fellas in their natural habitat!

Once you're there you can choose from guided tours around the main island, go searching for puffins or take a stroll around the charming town of Vestmannaeyjar in its spectacular surroundings, see the effects of the infamous eruption and chat to some friendly locals.

During the first weekend of July and even more so the first weekend of August this otherwise laid-back island gets transformed into a giant celebration area, something sociable travelers have a ton of fun with! 

Getting to Vestmannaeyjar is easy, only a 20 minute flight from Reykjavík and you can also get there by boat, talk to us about planning your island adventure!
