Come aboard for a voyage to Iceland's Westfjords. Join a magical cruise that ends with a feast of fresh scallops and roe for you to savour in.

This tour is perfectly suited to anyone who loves the open seas and wants to experience the breathtaking scenery of Iceland‘s western coastline.

Ringed with mountains, Breiðafjörður is large, shallow bay in West Iceland. Many intertidal areas and islands found here, but most of the islands are only inhabited during summer. However, the bay is ever-important for its fisheries, its large eider colonies and eiderdown collecting, and its precious algae which are harvested year-round.

The area is graced with an incredible diversity of flora and fauna and extensive forests and abundant plant life make it an ideal place for many species of birds who flock to the cliffs to nest every summer.These include common shag, glaucous gull, white-tailed eagle, common eider, black guillemot, grey phalarope, the brent goose and red knot. This place is a bird watcher‘s paradise!

You may even see seals playing on the shores, the slick black tail fins of whales, or leaping porpoises in the deeper waters. The area is quite literally teeming with life.

During the tour, a shellfish plough is lowered into the depths, raised and its contents emptied right on deck for you to see: scallops, sea urchins, crabs, starfish, sea cucumbers, and much more. Some of these are possible to eat fresh immediately, such as scallops and sea urchins, so you will have the freshest meal possible. 

Let the crew take care of cleaning and shucking, and you‘ll enjoy your treats with soy sauce and wasabi (or plain, if you prefer!).

Don't miss this “taste” of Iceland‘s bounteous seas! Check booking availability by choosing a date.

The guides and the crews helping us to prepare and enjoy the feast were Not good (trick you), BUT excellent ! :) The cloudy and a bit windy weather that day did not come with rough sea, and thus did not affect our mood of enjoyment. Reccomend this tour without reservations.

Out of all the tours we did while we were in Iceland, this was one of the best. The staff is so great! You get a close view of the birds around the area and the guide is very knowledgeable. The sushi was amazing! Such a great experience!!

Really great tour! We didn't realize we'd get to see a lot of bird nests so that was a great addition. The "sushi" aspect was incredibly novel and something I'm bound to recommend everyone who will be visiting Iceland.

Fantastic experience! The crew and Captain were all terrific. They were friendly and helpful. The catamaran is so very stable. Of course the Viking "sushi" was the highlight of the trip. Both fun and yummy!
