The wildlife at Vigur island is very exciting, seals and even whales can frequently be spotted on this tour, and the birdlife is teeming with various species including puffins, eider ducks & the arctic tern. Vigur also offers fantastic views over the fjords of Ísafjarðardjúp bay including the Drangajökull glacier.

The birds nesting on the island gradually leave towards the end of the summer, but you can still see some birds even in late August and September, and seals almost all year round.

Bi-weekly scheduled departures from 16th May-24th September 2015. Min 2 pax, max 8 pax.

Private tours can be organized upon request. Contact us for a private tour.

We drive from Ísafjordur for about an hour to the seal colony of Hvítanes, from where we start paddling towards Vigur. Once on the island we'll stop for a lunch break and then take a circle around the island before heading back to Hvítanes at the end of an unforgettable day.
