Do something different on your visit to Iceland and look for wildlife aboard a traditional wooden sailing ship. Discover the magic of the ocean and get back to nature off the north coast of Iceland.

Our guide was Mike and he was great! He was on time at the morning and always very kind with us. He knows a lot about Iceland culture (he is from UK) and speaks 4 languages. We followed the tour as the description and gave us plenty of time to enjoy every stop. We totally recommend to take this tour.

Very informative guide, clean comfortable transport and fascinating itinerary. Only 14 passengers in the mini-bus and our guide got us to each site ahead of huge crowds of cruise passengers on coach excursions.

Nice weather - cold, windy, rainy. Huge number of puffins at they island. Five whale watched. Excellent experiance.

Our tour guide was very informative and patient!!! Learned alot about Iceland!

Great guide. Great information about the area. Learned a lot!
