Tour description
€87 per person

The Winter Whale Watching Reykjavik Tour offers you the chance to see many types of whales & dolphins up close. Sighting success on previous tours has been quite excellent.

Each year continues to surprise us with the wildlife it offers. Herring and capelin being the main prey available attracting humpback whales, killer whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises to our shores.

This Winter Whale Watching Reykjavik Tour focused mainly on the southern part of Faxaflói Bay, just off Reykjavik. Each day we scan the area for signs of whales as we never know for sure where we might find them. Sometimes we have to go far, while at other times the whales are quite close to shore.

Tour highlights

  • Views of white-capped mountains and breathe in the winters fresh, crisp air is just incredible
  • The most cetacean in the area are the White-Beaked Dolphins, Harbour Porpoises as well as Humpback Whales and Killer Whales
  • Great sightings success in previous Winter Whale Watching Tours

Did you know?

Did you know that whales can travel up to 20.000 km each year, stay underwater for almost 2 hours and dive to depths of 2.000 meters or more? Some would say 2 km but I think 2.000 meters sounds much more impressive!

Included

  • Professional English speaking guide.
  • Access to the Whale Watching Centre at Reykjavik Harbour.
  • Use of warm overalls.
  • Excellent guidance.
  • Wireless internet on board.

Good to know

Dress warmly and don’t be shy to also put on our warm overalls!

On rare occasions we head to other areas and/or depart from nearby harbours e.g. Hafnarfjörður, Keflavík, Sandgerði or Grindavík. This is the case when weather conditions or chances of seeing the whales are greater there than in our normal area.

This tour is subject to weather, conditions and visibility. Therefore the tour could get cancelled on short notice. In this case we will contact you with as much notice as possible with the information provided in the booking process.

If no whales or dolphins are seen you are offered another ticket valid for two years.
