A cave and wildlife adventure
Orcas and whales often swim in these waters – as well as dolphins and porpoises – so keep an eye out! We’ll visit sea caves and even explore a few on this excursion. You’ll see amazing lava shapes created by a volcanic eruption here in 1973. Then you’ll get close to a big puffin colony in Stakkabót and see thousands of these unusual birds.
