This fantastic whale watching tour starts from the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavík.
First, we make a quick stop at one of three puffin colonies situated on islands close to Reykjavík. We don’t go off on the islands but try and get as close as possible without disturbing any natural behavior or interfering with the nesting birds.
2 hr. whale watching in Faxaflói bay, looking out for minke whales, humpback whales, dolphins, and porpoises. If we’re lucky we might even spot other bigger whales! The landscape surrounding the bay makes the experience so much more unique!
Harpa & Reykjavík
We zoom along Sæbraut and view Sólfarið Viking ship sculpture and Harpa concert hall from a different angle. Don’t forget to take in the city view as it looks completely different from the sea!
