Drangey Tours

Our boat tours to Drangey Island start from Reykir harbor, next to the famous natural hot spring "Grettislaug". Reykir is located in the stunning landscape of Skagafjordur in North of Iceland.

Drangey island is a birdwatching paradise. The island is a nesting colony for thousands of seabirds, including puffins, guillemots, gannets, kittiwakes, fulmar, shearwaters along with ravens and gyrfalcons. The island is a sheer sided palagonite rock aproximately 180m high and provides a wonderful view over the whole fjord.

A trip to Drangey is a unique experience combining sightseeing, birdwatching, sailing, hiking with personal service and guidance. There is a man made path to the top of the island along the face of the cliffs. While hiking you can get up close to the puffins that frequently sit resting within a few meters of the path. During the hike our tour guides tell the ancient stories of Grettir the strong, a viking that lived on the island in excile and more recent ones of how the islands resources have harvested from past to present. The tour is suitable for both groups and individuals of all ages. The tour duration is approximately 3 hours.

It´s not a problem if someone does not wish to take on the hiking part of the trip to the top of the island. Those who wish can stay on the boat or go on shore at the small harbor in Drangey, relax and enjoy the beautiful scenes of nature all around.

Over the summer months, 20.may - 20.August, we offer daily trips to Drangey from Reykir at 10:00 am.

In May and September are no scheduled tours but tours can be arranged on request.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
