Whale Watching from Olafsvik village


For those traveling around the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, Olafsvik is the perfect place to join a whale watching tour.

Sitting on the north end of the peninsula, the town is close to the bountyful waters of the clear North Atlantic Ocean where a number of whale species feed.  

This unique whale watching tour takes you into in search of orcas, blue whale, fin whale, humpback whales, minke whales and sperm whales. From the open waters you can also get a great view of the magnificent Snaefellsjokull  Glacier, as it appears to be rising from the sea.
