  • AWESOME PUFFIN TOUR!

    LOVED! We absolutely loved Elding’s RIB Puffin tour! It was one of the highlights of our Iceland vacation. We saw tons of puffins! Our tour guide Mike was extremely knowledgable about puffins and other birds we saw. You can see he cares about the puffins and other oceanic birds. Megan was an excellent captain of the boat. It was great fun riding the RIB boat through the harbor and to the two islands and then back to the harbor. We highly recommend this company’s puffin tour if you are in Reykjavik.
