Cultural Visits, Iceland
Whale watching tours are operated from the old harbour in Reykjavik. The whales most frequently seen on our tours are the Minke whales, Humpback whales, Dolphins and Porpoises.
The boat’s guide will tell you about your trip which usually lasts around 3 hours and describe what you can see and where to look, together with an introduction and safety guide, as well as answer any questions.
There are indoor and outdoor viewing areas so anyone feeling cold can still get a great view.
Aside from our Reykjavik Sightseeing tour, you may want to spend a little time exploring Reykjavik yourselves, whether you fancy a spot of shopping, visiting the harbour area, or seeing some of the capital’s historic buildings.
