Whale watching

Witness the gentle giants in their natural surroundings. Iceland is one of the best places in the world to go whale watching. Seeing these great mammals is truly an unforgettable experience. 

Around Iceland there are over 20 different species of whales, 8 of which are regularly seen on whale watching tours, e.g. the humpback whale, minke whale and orcas. They come to feed here and the conditions are good for them, i.e. around Iceland two currents mix, hot water and cold artic waters, and the bays and fjords offer relatively shallow water. These combined make favorable feeding condition for the whales.

We offer a great selection of different whale watching tours, whether you prefer to get real up close to the whales in RIB boats or go see these majestic animals on a wooden boat. We also recommend a visit to the Whales of Iceland Exihibition.
