Sail to Málmey from Hofsós and see where the puffins and guillemots nest during the warmer months!

Ideal for:Everybody
Difficulty:Very Easy
Duration:6 hours and 30 minutes

What to expect?

We start the trip from your hotel or guesthouse in Akureyri, as we start driving from there through amazing mountain road to Skagafjörður and into a small town called Hofsós were we go sailing.

We sail around and take you to the most beautiful places of the Eastern Coast of Skagafjörður, North Iceland.

This trip takes you to Málmey, a very well preserved island where Puffins (lundi in Icelandic) and Guillemots (langvía) love to nest during the warmer months. There are high chances that they invite themselves during the cruise!

What a better way to end the tour than going to Hofsós well-known swimming pool? There you can enjoy an infinite view over the Ocean and still see Drangey and Malmey in the distance.

After good and relaxing swimming it is time to head back to Akureyri, we will take a few moments to enjoy the picture spots that Skagafjörður has to offer on the way back.
