In order to see the puffins, you need to book/buy tickets for the 1-hour tour Puffin Watching (Puffin Express from Reykjavik). You will be quickly and comfortably taken to the islands where these elegantly dressed beauties nest/live (about 30 thousand!).

You can now start planning a puffin tour for next year (May-August 2020). This season, the boat to the puffins will be sent 5-7 times a day. And be sure to take your children with you – they will surely love the friendly birds with bright beaks and paws!

For those who want to arrange a photo hunt for puffins – grab macro photography cameras with good zoom lenses for close up shoots (puffins are quite small birds).
