What we will do •We begin our journey with a picturesque view across the boundless landscape as far as the town of Stykkishólmur, a fishing village which has been a trading post for centuries, thanks to its favourable location. •From Stykkishólmur we board a ferry to take us into the archipelago of adventures, where the swirling currents sweep us around numerous islands with very beautiful, unusual rock formations and basalt columns. •Birdwatching enthusiasts can be prepared for an unforgettable experience: immense colonies of puffins, Iceland's iconic bird, and numerous other bird species nest amidst the cliffs and basalt columns of this region, allowing us to see them closeup and take some unique photos. •Puffins, white-tailed sea eagles, shags, black guillemots, seagulls and, if we're lucky, some friendly seals. •The waters of the bay of Breiðafjörður are rich in marine life and food: our captain will show us these treasures by dragging a net full of delicacies; different kinds of shellfish are scooped up from the bottom of the ocean: scallops, sea urchins, crabs, starfish, sea cucumbers, some of which can be eaten fresh. The seafood will be the freshest you have ever seen!
