The local bird life is also diverse in summer, including the Puffin, Arctic Tern, Gannet and many varieties of Gull.

After the tour, you can explore the Whale Exhibition Center that enables you to witness the mysteries of the ocean. The Whale Exhibition Center is situated in an old capelin-fishing vessel “Fífill” which has been transformed into an exhibition and information centre on whales and seabirds.
