Embark on an extraordinary journey with our Whale Watching departing from Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavik. Delight in the wonders of Iceland's wildlife as we set sail into Faxaflói bay, seeking out Minke and Humpback whales, Dolphins, Harbour porpoises, and even the elusive Killer whales. Revel in the panoramic vistas of Reykjavik's majestic mountains and picturesque islands while being surrounded by an array of captivating bird species.

Onboard amenities include cozy overalls, spacious heated indoor cabins, a delightful bar, and complimentary WiFi, ensuring your utmost comfort and enjoyment throughout the excursion.

What's unique about Hvammsvik Hot Springs is that they are part of a 1200 acre private estate that offers you complete freedom to explore and experience all our surroundings far away from the city life yet only a 45 minute picturesque drive from Reykjavik.  You will find yourself immersed in perfectly warm hot springs all year round right on the edge of the ocean.  In fact some of our hot springs will actually fill up as they are submerged in high tide giving you and ever changing experience.

Recharge, naturally! We offer eight natural hot springs of varying temperatures, a steam cave and outdoor relaxation areas. We have brand new facilities yet inspired by history of Hvammsvik that dates back to the 12th century.  You can even try out our outdoor changing facilities where you will shower under the open sky. Our aim at Hvammsvik Hot Springs is to give our guests an authentic Icelandic nature experience. The area is rich in local wildlife, with over 30 different types of birds that reside in and around Hvammsvik.

Please be advised that the minimum age of passengers is 10!
