Discover two exciting activities in a single day with this unbeatable lava-caving and whale-watching tour from Reykjavik. Travelers keen to immerse themselves in Iceland’s stunning natural landscapes and enjoy up-close wildlife encounters should book this combination tour now.

Your day begins with a pick-up from your Reykjavik accommodation. You’ll greet your friendly driver and head off for the day’s first adventure at the Leidarendi lava cave near Reykjavik.

When you arrive, the guide will give you all the necessary gear for your caving trip. The equipment includes gloves, a flashlight, and a helmet. You should also wear warm clothing and sturdy outdoor shoes for walking on uneven surfaces.

After a safety briefing, it’s time to explore the fascinating terrain beneath the lava field. This family-friendly activity is rated as easy and welcomes children as young as six. It will involve walking and crawling through the cave, so you should be in good physical condition and feel okay in tight, dark spaces.

Marvel at the hidden underground world that defines this part of the landscape. It’s full of jagged rock formations from past eruptions and vibrant colors, creating a mesmerizing experience.

After a thrilling guided tour through the cave, your driver will take you back to Reykjavik. You’ll arrive in plenty of time for the whale-watching tour, which departs from the harbor at 13:00.

Step on board the gorgeous, spacious vessel, excitement brewing for what’s to come. Make yourself comfortable as the boat sets sail across Faxafloi bay in search of the whales and dolphins that call these waters home.

Breathe in the fresh air and bask in the glorious scenery surrounding you. The boat’s warm interior has enormous windows that offer fantastic views, while an extra-large deck provides spectacular panoramic vistas. 

Minke whales, white-beaked dolphins, harbor porpoises, humpback whales, and various seabirds are commonly spotted on this tour. Witnessing a majestic humpback whale break through the water’s surface or watching playful dolphins gracefully gliding alongside the boat is an unforgettable experience. Ensure your camera is fully charged and ready to capture photos for lasting memories.

Although there’s an excellent chance you’ll observe the sea’s magnificent mammals during your tour, wildlife sightings can’t be guaranteed. If there are no sightings, you’ll receive a complimentary ticket to try again another night. 

After a memorable adventure, the boat will return to the Reykjavik harbor, where the tour finishes. From there, you can continue exploring the landmarks and attractions of Iceland’s vibrant capital city.

Don’t miss the chance to join two exhilarating activities in one day on this seven-hour lava-caving and whale-watching tour from Reykjavik. Check availability now by choosing a date.
