Whale Watching from Reykjavík

PARTNER TOUR – HANDPICKED ESPECIALLY FOR YOU

Adventures at sea with whales, dolphins and puffins just outside of Reykjavík. A great outing for the whole family. 

Reykjavík is a great destination for whale watching and this tour proudly boast a whooping 90% success rate when it comes to sightings on their tours (during the summer season, the winter is closer to 70% on average). All their tours leave from the Old Harbor in Reykjavík but you can choose between two different tours that both cost the same: A classic Reykjavík Whale Watching tour with an educational twist or a shorter Whale Watching Express tour

 

PICK UP OFFERED FROM ALL GUESTHOUSES AND HOTELS IN THE REYKJAVÍK AREA FOR AN ADDITIONAL FEE

What to wear

Although you will be sitting on the bus between places, once you get to each destination you will be spending some time outside. So we suggest you wear layers, lots of layers (so you won’t be too warm on the bus and so you will be just warm enough outside.). A hat and mittens has never hurt anyone either.

Open voucher

If you have plenty of time and no set schedule it might be worth it for you to buy an open voucher. With the open voucher you can decide on short notice what day and time suits you best. Calling ahead to check for weather conditions and availability is advised. See bookable extras to buy an open voucher.
