What to see in Heimaey

Nestled in the Westman Islands, off the southern coast of Iceland, Heimaey Port is the entryway to an extraordinary blend of natural beauty and cultural vibrancy.

Just a short distance from the port lies Eldheimar, a museum dedicated to preserving the memories of the devastating 1973 Eldfell volcanic eruption. Through interactive exhibits and poignant narratives, visitors can immerse themselves in the events that reshaped the island and the lives of its inhabitants. The museum’s most gripping feature is the excavation site where houses buried under the ash have been painstakingly uncovered. Eldheimar isn't just a museum; it's a powerful reminder of nature’s might and human resilience.

Heimaey is a paradise for birdwatchers and Stórhöfði, the windiest place in Europe, offers the perfect lookout for puffin enthusiasts. With a short ride from the port, you'll reach this renowned puffin habitat, where thousands of these charming birds can be observed in their natural setting during the breeding season. The panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the surrounding archipelago are spectacular, adding to the magic of this unique wildlife experience. Don’t forget your binoculars and camera to capture the sights and memories of Heimaey’s feathered friends.

For the adventurous at heart, hiking Eldfell Volcano presents an unmatched opportunity to connect with the raw power of Iceland’s volcanic landscape. The volcano’s relatively gentle slopes are accessible for most visitors and the hike to the summit is rewarded with breathtaking views of the entire island and the vast expanse of the ocean beyond. Feel the warmth still emanating from the ground, a testament to the volcano's recent activity and the ever-present force of nature on the island.
