Experience the wildlife and nature adventure of a lifetime on a private whale watching tour. An experienced guide will take you out to sea in search for wild life, where you can expect to see whales, dolphins and bird life. Winter whale watching is a unique experience and a whole other adventure compared to the summer. Each year continues to surprise us with the wildlife it offers.
The low-lying sun is something not to be missed, as it casts a warm glow over the snow-capped mountains surrounding the bay, often painting the sky bright orange or pink. Explore the rich wildlife of the coast in the shadow of the surrounding stunning landscape and breathe in the fresh and crisp air of the Atlantic ocean to maximise your experience! Herring and Capelin being the main prey available in our waters, it often attracts Humpback whales, Killer whales/Orcas, White-beaked dolphins and Harbour porpoises to our shores.

Search for the wildlife and explore seas on the adventure of a lifetime on our premium, small groups whale watching tour. Our specially engineered RIB boats get you closer and faster to the whales and puffins than our bigger boats. These stable and safe boats also allow us to search a bigger area, thus increasing your likelihood of viewing the whales, dolphins and birdlife.
This fantastic whale watching tour starts from the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavík. First we ride out to one of three islands close to the harbour and check out the breeding puffins (season 15 May – 15 August). Next we head out further in search of whales and dolphins. Seeing the wildlife as up close as you can from our RIB boats is a once in a lifetime adventure and experience. After exploring the wonders of the sea we sail back to Reykjavík, where we will ride along the city shore line. Along the coast we will have views of the city from a unique angle, Sólfarið viking ship sculpture and mesmerising Harpa Concert Hall.
