Whale Watching in Iceland

Watching whales have become one of the most common activities among foreign visitors to Iceland.

Whale safaris in Iceland are an unforgettable experience that offers a chance to see some of the world's most magnificent creatures up close.



Húsavík and Eyjafjörður were among the first places in the country that offered whale-watching excursions.

The number of species and favourable weather and sea conditions make North Iceland one of the best Icelandic areas for spotting whales.

Skjálfandi and Eyjafjörður are sheltered bays, perfect for a boat ride on a summer's day, surrounded by birds and beautiful scenery.

The experience becomes complete by seeing dolphins and minke, humpback, or even blue whales play beside one of the particularly appealing oakwood boats used exclusively in North Iceland.
