Embark on an unforgettable whale watching adventure and visit the gentle giants of the deep that live in the waters off the old and scenic village of Arskogssandur.

Step aboard an old fishing boat that has found a new role as a whale-watching vessel. It now takes guests on quiet sailing excursions in the fair winds and calm seas of Eyjafjordur.

Eyjafjordur bay is well located and is, in fact, such a favorable habitat for marine life that one might even spot a whale from the shore. 

Enjoy the scenic views of Eyjafjordur whilst spotting the whales and the seabirds of the north under the guidance and expertise of your qualified crew. Try something unique and spend over two hours at sea exploring wild nature at its best.

Your tour will start in the sales office in Arskogssandur in North Iceland. With the boarding pass in your hand, you can board the boat where your crew will welcome you and prepare you for your adventure. 

The crew will make sure all passengers will feel comfortable and warm during the tour. All guests will be supplied with warm overalls if needed, and they will be treated with hot chocolate and cinnamon buns on the way back to land.

Aside from the local marine life, you’ll also be given spectacular views of the coast. Keep your cameras ready for the mountainous vistas and shorelines unique to this part of the world. 

Arskogssandur is a well-kept secret found on the west bank of Eyjafjordur. It is a historic fishing village, situated on the northern coast of Iceland, within a 30-minute drive from Akureyri. 

Visit Hjalteyri and surround yourself with history and wildlife. Come on board and sail to meet the ocean's greatest inhabitants! Check the availability by choosing a date.
