Travelling to Lundy

Your Lundy adventure begins even before you set foot on the Island.

During the winter season, (beginning of November until the end of March), a Helicopter Service operates between Lundy and Hartland Point on Mondays and Fridays.  This exhilarating flight takes approximately seven minutes, providing spectacular aerial views of the Island and North Devon.

During the summer season, (end of March until the end of October), the Island’s own supply ship and ferry, the MS Oldenburg departs several times a week from either Bideford or Ilfracombe. 

The Oldenburg is a graceful motor vessel of over 300 tons, built on traditional lines with interior wood panelling and brass fittings.  She has comfortable saloons, bar, buffet, a shop and an information centre.  On fine days there is plenty of space on deck and if you are lucky you may be treated to the company of a playful pod of dolphins who often delight in following the ship.

As well as the scheduled ship and helicopter services visitors are welcome to use their own transportation, subject to a small landing fee.  The Landing Bay provides a sheltered anchorage for yachts and other small craft with an easily accessible slipway.  For those with their own planes or helicopters we have a small grassy airfield adjacent to the Old Light and a helipad on the edge of the village - in each case advance permission is required.
