Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Island) is an island south of the mainland. It is a short ferry ride to get there. The Vestmannaeyjar Islands consist of many islands, all created from volcanoes, so what did we do? We took a 1.5 hour boat tour around the islands. On the boat ride, we saw where the Barbary pirates landed and raided, multiple volcanoes, tons of puffins and the ever changing rock/islands. One of the giant rocks that came out was the largest puffin breeding colony in the world, estimated to have 4 million puffins. The rock formations where highly dynamic, the tour guide was able to point out everything that has changed year to year. We even got to go in the caves with the boat and at the end, the tour guide pulled a saxophone out of nowhere and started played in a cave. What an odd but cool experience. There was also a golf course of all things on the volcanic island. Every year, the people living on the island have a huge festival that 250,000 people go to (Iceland’s population is only 350,000), but sadly we missed it by a couple days.
