Whale Watching

Join the adventure out at sea and get a glimpse of the whale's world!

Iceland is frequently ranked among the top ten whale watching spots in the world, and for good reason! The largest mammal on earth seems to quite enjoy our chilly waters and lives all around Iceland's coastline.

This majestic animal has always had an intriguing, almost humbling effect on us Icelanders, and has been a big part of our mythology throughout the ages. Here is your chance to experience these gentle giants up close!

Icelandic whales love getting visits!

Whales can be spotted all year round but the busiest season is the Icelandic summer (June-August) when a myriad of migrating whales and sea birds join the resident whales for an underwater party, coming up for air to let us have a look at them!

The tours are generally about two to three hours of comfortable and scenic sailing, with the option of a midnight sun tour during the summer which will leave no-one unimpressed.

The most common sights are minke whales, white beaconed dolphins, harbous porpoises, and if lucky you will spot orcas, sperm whales or the great humpback whale's tail when it dives into the deep sea. During the summer months you will also enjoy the presence of sea birds such as the charismatic puffins, arctic terns and guillemots.

Tours are available from several different parts of the country, come along and visit our peaceful friends in the sea.
