Whale Watching

This activity, like that of the northern lights, is difficult to assess, it will depend on whether you have seen them or not. In my case I could see the auroras on the third attempt but we could not see the whales, only some dolphins. In both cases (auroras and whales) they give you two years to see them without paying anything. What you have to do is make these excursions at the beginning of the holidays since you will have more days to sign up again and be able to see them. They can also be canceled due to bad weather.

Whale Watching

The tour meets in Reykjavik first thing in the morning, and hits the road on the way to the port, beginning our cruise on the Faxaflói bay. As soon as we hit the Atlantic, you'll enjoy spectacular views of the island from the boat.

During the tour, you'll have the opportunity to see humpback whales in their natural habitat. The coasts of the island are regularly visited by these and other whales, and depending on the time of year and the sea conditions, we may also see dolphins or even orcas.

As we sail next to these majestic beasts, we'll learn about the behaviour and biology of these protected species, and the importance of conserving the biodiversity of the ocean. And after an unforgettable day immersed in the wildlife of the Atlantic ocean, we'll begin the cruise back to the Reykjavik port.
