Sailing around Breiðafjörður’s numerous islands, the Viking Sushi Adventure Tour offers a glimpse of the Iceland fairytale-like scenery: variegated rock faces, areas of historical interest, along with the strongest ocean currents anywhere on Iceland’s coasts. With our unique feature EasyGuide, you will be able to add Stykkishólmur to your trip and navigate there effortlessly!
During the summer, the area abounds with birdlife: shags, puffins, black-legged kittiwakes, arctic terns, fulmars, and eider ducks. Even the king of Icelandic birds, the white-tailed eagle, sometimes makes an appearance.
A definite highlight of the tour is the towing of the dredge along the ocean floor when different kinds of shellfish are scooped up from the bottom of the ocean: scallops, sea urchins, crabs, starfish, sea cucumbers, some of which can be eaten fresh ( for example scallops and sea urchins).

Breathtaking Breiðafjörður beauty
Breiðafjörður is a nature reserve and bay between the Snæfellsnes Peninsula and the Westfjords in West Iceland. The mountains at the northern side of the bay’s entrance are some of the oldest in the country, formed 15 million years ago.
Fifty birds nest on the islands, including the common shag, the black guillemot, the brent goose, and puffins. Many of these species can only be seen from May to September.
It is often possible to see a variety of marine mammals in the bay. The grey and harbor seals are most common, which can be seen swimming and hauling out on the rocks. It should be noted that Breiðafjörður is one of the best parts of the country to see orcas from the shore, although they are still uncommon.
Viking Sushi Tour is one of the must-to-do things while in Iceland. Taste some freshly caught seafood!
