Volcanic Westmann Isles are more accessible than ever. In 2010 a new harbour was built right opposite the islands making it feasible to visit from Reykjavik in one day. We travel across lavafields and farmland before we board a ferry for a 30 minute ride to Heimaey Island with its 4.500 inhabitants. You'll get to know the island, its history and geology during our visit. We spend enough time on the island for you to enjoy its major attractions. There are plenty of roads and trails on the island but few cars - making the island an ideal place for bicycling. Once on the island we get on our bikes and pedal to view the main attractions on the islands such as; Pompei of the North, puffin colonies in summer, Helgafell volcano, lavafield from 1973, houses that half collapsed due to the lavaflow and more ! •1 June - 31 August: Thursdays •Departure time: 1 PM, Duration: +/- 8 hours •Distance: +/- 7 km (5 miles) of cycling on the Island •Difficulty: Light-medium •Meeting point:
