Though Iceland may be best known for the raw beauty of its landscape, it's also a go-to whale watching destination for international visitors. Experience these majestic creatures in the wild on this whale watching cruise on Faxaflói Bay. Just hop in your rigid inflatable boat as your guide skims you through Reykjavik Old Harbour, and helps you spot local species—like dolphins and porpoises—and migrating species, like the elusive and beautiful minke and humpback whales.
  • Cruise around Faxaflói Bay on a whale watching adventure, from Reykjavik
  • Try to spot various aquatic species, and pass the seasonal puffin colonies
  • Take in the views of Reykjavik, from its fishing huts to Harpa Concert Hall
  • Get a great value with coveralls, safety gear, boat ride, and guide included
