Go whale watching on this tour from Reykjavik harbour and relax at the Blue Lagoon hot spring spa.

Among the whales you can see on the boat trip are humpback whales, minke whales, harbor porpoises and white-beaked dolphins. Various seabirds can also be sighted, such as puffins and arctic terns.

After the boat trip you can visit the Whale Exhibition Center as part of the tour and in the afternoon you'll visit the Blue Lagoon spa. The Blue Lagoon is renowned the world over for its recreational waters which is rich with minerals.

Pickups from your hotel in Reykjavik are at 8:00 for whale watching and pickups for the Blue Lagoon are from the old Reykjavik harbour at 12:30.

You can then choose to you return to Reykjavik from the Blue Lagoon at 15:00, 17:15 or at 19:00. 

The wildlife of Faxafloi bay, along with relaxing at the Blue Lagoon, are two things all travelers to Iceland should experience. Enjoy both on this best value combination tour.

Onfortunetly there was no whales This day but anyway we had a Pleasant jouney. The staff was very gentley and everything was wery good. I can highley recomand this journey

Beautiful day well spent! I am a solo traveler who was staying in Reykjavik for 5 days. This tour was a great way to get out on the water and watch some whales (which we saw so close to the boat!) We then went and relaxed in the blue springs afterward. A stress free and easy day! I can't wait to come back!

If I were to review this two days a go, I would give it five stars. Now, after another tour (i.e. Volcano tour) with the same provider - Gray-line I have to say I am very disappointed, angry even, by the late pick up service. I would not recommend this tour with Gray-line because I don't think anyone would want to pay for hundred pounds for a service that is going to make you feel angry. We are here for fun, for happiness. The biggest problem is the Gray-line employees. They have not beared in mind that they are working in the service industry. When a customer is apparently angry with very late pickup, the least you could do is say sorry. This did NOT happen. What more can you expect from this company. It would not care about your opinion when it comes to any mistakes the company has made. If you still want to travel with Gray-line, hehe go ahead.
