On this fantastic Whale Watching tour you will observe the whales in their native environment, which is an unforgettable experience.

We will sail on Faxaflói bay, home of a unique variety of the Minke whale, the Humpback, Harbor Porpoise and the White-beaked Dolphins, which are all common sights on this tour. The Local bird life is also diverse, including such birds s the Puffin, Arctic tern, Gannet and many varieties of Gull.

After the tour you can explore the Whale Exhibition Center on the old capelin-vessel "Fífill" (English: Dandelion) that has been transformed into an exhibition and information centre on whales and seabirds. The entrance to the Whale Exhibition Center is free of charge for Whale Watching passengers.

The harbor is just a "stones throw" away from the city center, so it will only take you a few minutes to reach the city center on foot after your tour. Local buses, taxis and a shuttle service, offered by the company Elding (which operates the Whale Watching tours), are also available to those that do not want to go downtown.
