The classic tour- Klettsvík bay

Kayak & Puffins offers a 1.5 – 2 hour guided tour around the magnificent Klettsvík Bay in the Westman Islands off the southwest coast of Iceland.

We start the trip from the small harbour in Heimaey. From there we will paddle our way to Langa, which is a sandy beach at the foot of the mountain Heimaklettur. In this sheltered area it is common to see seals which sometimes curiously approach kayakers. We will then paddle our way along steep walls of Heimaklettur towards Klettsvík Bay where, between May and August, we should be able to see puffins and other seabirds. Passing by Beluga Sanctuary, we will head towards Klettshellir – a unique cave with beautiful colours and impressive acoustics. It is truly an amazing experience to be in the cave in a kayak and take in all the natural beauty. After this we will head back – taking a look at Stafkirkjan – beautiful black church standing in the Skansinn area just before returning to the harbour to conclude the kayak tour.

The premium tour  – Stórhöfði

Temporarily cancelled
Kayak & Puffins offers a 1.5 – 2 hour guided tour around  Stórhöfði, south of Westman Islands, with special emphasis on photography.

Starting from summer 2022, we would like offer new kayak destination – the beautiful Stórhöfði peninsula. This trip is dedicated to puffin lovers, wildlife photographers or anyone who would like to spent 2h+ exploring one of the largest puffin colony in the world from sea level. We start the trip from the black sand beach – Klauf, which is located around 10 minutes’ drive from the center of Vestmannaeyjar. From there, we will paddle along the cliffs, focusing on puffins resting on water or going to explore photogenic rock formations and secret caves. This trip can be easily adapted to customized requests – we can focus on wildlife photography, go for longer kayaking & sightseeing around Stórhöfði or even (if participants will bring their own rods) use kayaks for sea angling.
