Whale Watching Midnight Sun Tour

June 15th - July 31st Daily About 2.5 hours Reykjavík without pick up Easy

During the summer months we have nearly 24 hours of daylight, which allows us to operate the fantastic Midnight Sun whale watching tour.

There’s something extra-special about seeing whales in the evening, surrounded by the orange glow of the evening sun reflecting off the peaceful waters of Faxaflói Bay.

You’ll set sail at 21:00 and head back to land just before midnight, giving you plenty of time to search for whales with one of our expert guides. The most common species we see on our tours are humpback whales, minke whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises.
