The Reykjavík Power Tour is a fast paced power tour in our awesome RIB boats. Take in the panoramic view of Reykjavik city including a photo opportunity at the Harpa Convention Hall and the Sun Voyager sculpture. You will see the towering mountains to the north of the city and on a clear day the mysterious Snæfellsjökull Glacier in the far west across the Faxaflói Bay.

We will race past the island in the fjord between Reykjavík and Esja Mountain and make a stop at the Þerney Island and the floating pier where you and your fellow adventurers can toast and enjoy the views. We will also visit the Lundey Island (Puffin Island) and see the puffins when they are in season.

You can book the Reykjavík Power Tour for any time of the day but it is most popular to go for an evening tour, either before dinner or after.

Our boats seat 12 passengers.
