The presence of hundreds of puffins on and around Melrakkey Island with its basalt columns is a sight to behold. On our traditional oak boat, Láki, we get as close to the cliffs as possible to see these small birds with their brightly coloured beaks. We then sail around the island nature reserve to get a view of the other birds that nest there, including shags, cormorants, guillemots, kittiwakes and many others. A one-hour plus tour on Láki offers the maximum potential to see these endearing creatures in their nesting environment. On our way home, we get to soak up the beautiful scenery of the fjord which includes Mt Kirkjufell, the most photographed mountain in Iceland. This tour is a perfect family outing and a great opportunity for photographers.
