Catch a ferry from Iceland's capital city, Reykjavík, to Viðey, the largest island in the picturesque Kollafjörður fjord. This is an unmissable opportunity for those mainland travellers in Iceland looking to further explore some of the country's charming island communities. 

Iceland is so brimming with fantastic natural attractions, it's often easy to forget that there are a great number of explorable islands just waiting off the coast. Viðey is one such island, a destination that boasts fascinating history, culture and nature, despite its rather diminutive size. 

From Reykjavík's Old Harbour, the ferry transfer to Viðey takes approximately twenty minutes, during which time you can enjoy the fresh sea air on deck, or the comfort of the boat's interior, planning your day's adventure.

On Viðey, there are a number of trails perfectly suited to exploring by foot or bike. The island covers approximately 1.7 square kilometres, meaning its easy to explore within a single day. Along these hiking trails, you will be able to find amazing vantage points where you'll have a great view over the island, the ocean and, of course, mainland Iceland. Naturally, you will also get a first-hand look at the wide variety of birdlife that calls Viðey home. 

There's much to do culturally on Viðey too. Aside from Yoko Ono's Peace tower (a testament to her late husband, the artist and ex-Beatle, John Lennon) and Richard Serra's Milestone Projects, guests here will be privy to one of the country's oldest churches, as well as the first stone building in Iceland. Within this historical building sits Viðeyjarstofa Café, a perfect spot for a coffee, tea or bite to eat. 

So what's the holdup? Hurry now and you too experience this efficient ferry transfer from Iceland's capital city, Reykjavík, to Viðey. Check availability by choosing a date.
