Whale Watching & Northern lights | 2-Tour Deal

With this offer you can combine two unique tours in one day; Whale Watching and Northern Lights.

During the day you will take a tour with us to explore beautiful Reykjavik coastline and the whole Reykjanes and Snæfellsnes peninsulas while our crew will be searching for whales and other ocean mammals that live in Faxaflói bay year round. The most common species, which are spotted are the Minke and Humpback whales, and then the smaller dolphins and harbour porpoises that often follow the boat. 

While sailing out to the ocean you can relax and enjoy your time in our cosy indoor saloon with some refreshments and snacks available on board. Our experienced guides will provide you with a unique whale watching experience and tell you all about each species you might see, so be sure to ask them all the questions you may have. They will be happy to help. 

At night will take you on a fabulous boat tour, just away from the city lights where you can see Northern Lights dancing in the sky. It is a unique experience to see the Aurora Borealis from the sea, partnered with the incredible view of the lights of Reykjavík city on the coast.

Our guides will provide you all the auroras stories and legends from around the world,  so you will also learn something on this tour about the science behind this amazing phenomenon. Remember to take a good camera with - use the long exposure settings and for sure you will take amazing shots.

Both tours will depart from the Old Harbour Vesturbugt, located in downtown of Reykjavík. Our vessel has three viewing platforms, full toilet facilities, and a heated indoor saloon where you can purchase both snacks and refreshments.

We do provide complimentary warm flotation overalls and sea sickness tablets for all our passengers, and there is free Wi-fi on board so you can share your experiences on the tour. If there will not be any sightings on either of the tours, you will have a chance to join us another time, free of charge. Take a chance on our combination deal to experience the best Iceland has to offer.

Do not hesitate to book, we are waiting for you to show you all the ocean species and sky lighten with Mother Nature's "fireworks".
