We booked a 2 ½ hour bus tour with Viking Tours, and I’d highly recommend them. There were 2 other couples on the tour. Our guide Alfred was excellent. He’s from the island, and he was 14 when the volcano erupted in 1973 and they were evacuated from the island, so he had some very interesting stories. We were fortunate... More

We took the 90-minute Circle boat tour in early August. The weather was sunny but quite windy with choppy water (obviously not the tour's responsibility!) so it was a bouncy ride but no one on board got sick. We were seated on benches on the top deck of the boat for the tour, though there is an enclosed first level... More

The island boat tour is an interesting overview of the island's geology so worth the time and money. However, the size of the boat compared to the size of puffins prohibit close viewing. You can see the birds from a distance but that is all. However, the guide mentioned a puffin viewing house that proved to the be the highlight... More

A dull, misty day, but a great trip round the island of We slowed or stopped for points of interest, such as a huge Kittiwake colony on the cliffs. There were puffins on the water and ashore, lots of Fulmar and Cormorants and other sea birds and we saw a Grey Seal and were taken through some weird tidal races... More

We took a 90-minute tour which focuses on the geology of the islands, and the aquatic life. We saw a variety of birds---puffins, oystercatchers---a seal and, almost a minke whale. the captain narrator saw the whale, and it dived almost immediately before the rest of us could see it. We stayed in the area for a bit, but it did... More

Fantastic boat tour around Vestmannaeyjar one of the MOST beutiful places in Iceland to see. This boat tour takes about one and a half hour that flies fast by ;) The captain played beautifully on saxophone in a cave in the end of the tour! Amazing :) I highly recommend taking a trip with Viking Tours :)

If you want to see as much as you can of this small island, this bus tour is a great way to get an overview. It pretty much goes everywhere and shows the highlights. You can also come back and visit sites again if anything fits your schedule. It doesn't do any hiking in the lava fields so if you... More

We took the Circle Boat Tour immediately after arriving on Heimaey. Being able to see all sides of the island from the water greatly improved our understanding, and helped us to identify spots we wanted to trek to once back on land. Highly recommend starting you visit with this tour. The Viking staff were very professional, the narration was interesting... More

We were invited by a local friend and will never forget. Great tour around the island and many nice animals (puffins, several other birds, whales, dolphins, sheeps and even an elephant ☺) Very impressive was the saxophone play in the cave!
