Whale Watching Experience

Your trip begins with a short drive to the harbor area in the city center. Once on the whale watching boat, you’ll be welcomed by a friendly crew before the boat sets sail and your adventure begins. The chance to enjoy the spectacular Icelandic nature from the sea and the close proximity to the awesome mammals swimming beneath the surface make whale watching an experience unlike any other. Whale watching in Iceland only started in 1995, but has had one of the highest growth rates in the world.


Iceland has become the whale watch capital of northern Europe in less than 10 years. About half of the 36 whale species, which live in European waters, can be seen in Icelandic waters so the potential for whale watching in Iceland is excellent! Among the species of whales found in the waters surrounding the country are blue, fin, humpbacks, minke and sei whales.


Note: Please bring warm clothes. Even though the weather in Reykjavik is good, it can be very cold and windy out on Faxafloi Bay.
