Spend the day with Iceland’s most charismatic animals, starting with a horse riding tour in the morning before hopping aboard a boat for a puffin watching tour in the afternoon. Nature lovers should not let this opportunity pass them by. 

Your adventure starts in the morning when you are picked up and driven to the stables where you’ll be meet your horse for the day. This tour is suited for both beginners and expert riders alike, and your guides will do their best to pair you up with a horse that matches your riding abilities. 

Once you’ve mounted your steed, you’ll head on out to the spectacular countryside. You’ll ride through hills and valleys that are steeped in both history and folklore. If you are feeling confident in your riding, you can even try the ‘tölt’ gait, unique to the Icelandic horse. 

Before you get back to the stables, you’ll make a stop at the local hotel for a light lunch. From there, you’ll board a bus heading back to Reykjavík city where the next part of the tour begins. 

At Reykjavík’s Old Harbour, you will have a chance to stroll around and discover the quaint little houses and restaurants of the area before embarking on your adventure on the sea. Once you’ve finished exploring the capital, you’ll board your vessel; a traditional oak boat that will take you to Lundey, or Puffin Island.

On board are binoculars so you can get a better look at those rainbow-billed white and black cuties as they fly about or rest in their nests on the island. Along the way, your guide will tell you everything you need to know about these charming birds and answer any questions you might have about them.
