Sea in Summer, Land in Winter
Happy Tours reveals the Fishermen’s World and Wonders of Reykjanes from Reykjavik’s Old Harbour
If you’re feeling curious about a fisherman’s life, you may want to consider a tour with Happy Tours. They have taken a 40-foot long traditional fishing boat named Saga and turned it into a sight-seeing boat. It was built from oak in Iceland in 1970 and has all the latest safety equipment. Their captain has been sailing for forty years and taking passengers on board since 2009. This original take of using a fisherman’s boat for tours makes them a unique company. Happy tours is a small, Icelandic, family-run company that aims to provide fun, curious and educating experiences for its guests. Their tours leave from the Old Harbour in Reykjavik.
Catch, cook, eat and enjoy
They offer sea angling tours, where your catch may include cod, pollack or haddock, fish that you later cook and enjoy in the traditional way, with potatoes. Here you will be both fishing and cooking with the locals since the staff is all Icelandic. Happy Tours also offers puffin watching tours. The puffin is well-known and very popular in Iceland, these tours three times a day during puffin season, which is from May 1st until August 23rd. There is a maximum number on each tour of 20 people, which provides personal service for each guest. They also offer whale watching tours and the ticket includes access to the Whales of Iceland exhibition.
A true winter wonderland
In the winter, they also offer bus tours. You can travel with them around Reykjanes Peninsula, which has a lot to offer but is often overlooked by tourists. There you will find hot springs, craters, lava and a landscape that is often described as moon-like. The tours also include a visit to a fish factory and lighthouses, in line with their fisherman’s theme.
Also during wintertime, they offer a three hour-long Northern Lights bus tour, with a maximum of 14 people on each tour. Given the nature of the Northern Lights, the route for each tour is set on a daily basis depending on weather conditions and sighting opportunities. They provide donuts and hot chocolate to warm you up on the tour.
Happy Tours strives to make each of their tours an adventure and leave their customers happy!
