This package lets you sample the best parts of Iceland without fuss or stress. Come on over and enjoy! We'll handle the rest. The itinerary strikes an excellent balance between nature and culture.

A Northern Lights tour is also included for you so you can hunt for their otherworldly beauty in the night sky. There are plenty of ways to add more excitement to your vacation, despite its short length. Good things come in small packages, after all. You may choose extra activities to add on to certain days during booking.  On your way around the Golden Circle, you could opt for snowmobiling on the great Langjökull glacier, whizzing over the white expanse without a care, or go snorkelling in the crystal clear Silfra fissure, in the waters that fill the void between the Eurasian and American tectonic plates.  You could also get back to nature with a horseback riding tour in the south Icelandic countryside. The Icelandic horse has one of the smoothest gaits known to man, and their small size means that they are not intimidating, even for beginners.  As you admire the black sand beaches and splashing waterfalls of the south coast, you can take a few hours to hike across the glacier and experience what it feels like to be isolated from the world.  Reserve a date now and welcome to the land of Northern Lights!

Whale Watching Tour from Reykjavik

Jump aboard this whale-watching excursion to see the incredible wealth of marine wildlife just off Reykjavík’s shores. This tour is a must for nature-lovers, and fits perfectly into a busy holiday; you leave straight from the capital city’s Old Harbour and return approximately three hours later. You will arrive at the harbour in good time for your departure, either by making your way there yourself or through a pick-up you can request during booking. If taking this trip during summer, you will have a choice between two boats, which you can select based on your sense of adventure and the nature of your group. The first vessel, and the only one operated year-round, is one of the largest whale-watching boats in Iceland. It has a fantastic educational and interactive focus on board, where you can learn more about the whales, as well as a café. The second vessel is one of our newest additions to the fleet, a fast-cruising catamaran. It promises to get you to the prime whale-watching location in just twenty minutes so that you can immerse yourself in the activity immediately. These express tours are only available during the summer months. Trips on this tour are approximately an hour shorter. On the first boat, you will spend roughly three hours out on the ocean looking for whales (approx. two hours on the second). As you travel out, your guide will point out the natural features surrounding the capital; in clear weather, you should be able to see both the Reykjanes Peninsula and the Snæfellsnes peninsula, as well as the ‘whale fjord’, otherwise called Hvalfjörður.  Four species can be regularly seen on these tours: harbour porpoises, white-beaked dolphins, Minke Whales and Humpback Whales. It is not at all unheard of, however, to see orcas (or killer whales), pilot whales, Fin Whales, and even Basking Sharks. On top of these incredible animals, during summer you can expect to see a wealth of seabirds, most notably including the puffin. Your experienced guides can answer any questions you have as you hunt for and marvel over these majestic creatures.  Each tour yields entirely different results. The animals’ behaviour change throughout the day; you might catch them breaching, socialising, feeding or just basking near the surface. If by chance, you are not lucky enough to see a marine mammal, you will have another opportunity to take this tour for free until you do. You will return to Reykjavík after three hours on the sea, hopefully after many exciting sightings and an up-close look at some of Iceland’s marvellous creatures. Because of the convenience and length of this tour, there will still be plenty of opportunities to make the most of the rest of your day, either on another tour or within the capital. Do not miss your chance to see the magnificent whales, dolphins and porpoises of Iceland. Set sail into Faxaflói bay for your opportunity. Check availability by choosing a date.

Jokulsarlon Amphibian Boat Tour

Jump aboard this incredible boat trip in one of the world’s most inspiring places: the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Cruise between the marvellous icebergs that make this site so beautiful and well-renowned.  To begin this tour, you will meet at the cafe at Jökulsárlón twenty minutes before your departure, where you can exchange your vouchers for boat tickets. From here, you will proceed to board the amphibious vessel on land and wait for it to drive into the water. No doubt, before getting aboard, you will have been marvelling at the spectacle of Jökulsárlón. When immersed in the lagoon, however, with the icebergs surrounding you from all angles, you will experience a different kind of beauty; this otherworldly environment is simply breathtaking. You will spend forty minutes exploring the lagoon. There will be an English-speaking guide on board who will tell you all about the area's formation, history and future. You will even have an opportunity to taste the ice; considering it is thought to be about a thousand years old, this is quite the unique experience. As you cruise through the lagoon, keep an eye out for seals. Many of these adorable creatures call Jökulsárlón home, and they can often be seen playing in the water or basking on the bergs. The glacier lagoon is considered by many to be the most beautiful sight in Iceland, and an amphibious boat is one of the best ways to view it in all its glory. Once the tour is complete, however, do not forget to take a walk to the Diamond Beach to see where the bergs wash up after reaching the sea. A full day could be spent exploring this area, but the boat tour is sure to be the highlight. Do not miss your opportunity to see Jökulsárlón from amongst the ancient ice. Book now to make sure you get your place on board. Check availability by choosing a date.

Zodiac Boat Tour of Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

Hop on board a speedy Zodiac inflatable boat for a tour among the massive icebergs of Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. This is part of an essential Icelandic experience, admiring the sun shining through the clouds on the blue-and-white ice floating peacefully from the lagoon. Boat tours began at the lagoon in 1985, after the opening sequence of the Bond film A View to a Kill was shot on location. Today, they are one of the most popular activities in Iceland, and three other major motion pictures have been shot on the lagoon to catch the unbelievable scenery. The glacier lagoon has been expanding since the 1970s due to the retreat of Vatnajökull glacier, pulling back from the coastline. It is now the deepest lake in Iceland, filling with ancient ice that cracks off of Breiðamerkurjökull glacial tongue, floating down rivers of meltwater to the glacier, where they float slowly out to sea, pulled by the tides. In good weather, gulls and seals often play on the ice. Photographers love to capture these animals, along with the huge chunks of ice as they float by or wash up on nearby Diamond Beach and lie sparkling on the black sand like diamonds on velvet. After making your way to Jökulsárlón to meet your group 30 minutes before tour departure, you’ll be provided with flotation suits and a life jacket. The small, low construction of the Zodiac boats allows you to explore a large area of the lagoon and get up close and personal with the ice (as close as safety allows). Take this opportunity to whizz across the magnificent glacier lagoon in a high-powered Zodiac! Check availability by choosing a date.

Husavik Traditional Whale Watching

Come aboard a traditional Icelandic boat for an incredible whale-watching excursion. See the magnificent marine life that dwells in the waters near the Arctic Circle on this fully guided adventure. This is the perfect tour for all nature-lovers travelling in North Iceland. The tour departs from the town of Húsavík which sits on the banks of Skjálfandi Bay, northeast Iceland. Húsavík has been branded the whale-watching capital of Iceland due to its many different species of whales that frequently enter the bay.  Your adventure starts at Húsavík harbour, where you will board a traditional Icelandic oak boat. This boat was originally built as a fishing vessel and was used as such for many years before it was rebuilt into a whale watching boat. Now, instead of fishing, it sails the ocean, disturbing nature as little as possible. You will spend about three hours on the water, searching and marvelling over the rich marine life in the bay. Your expert guide will look out for signs of the wonderful whales as well as answer any questions you might have. Skjálfandi bay is the home of around 24 species of whales. The four most common ones are the minke whale, the harbour porpoise, the white-beaked dolphin and the humpback whale; each of these is unique and fascinating.  The biggest animal on earth, the blue whale, has also been spotted in Skjálfandi Bay quite often. If you are lucky, you might catch a glimpse of this magnificent creature as well as others, such as killer whales (or orcas), fin whales and pilot whales. You could even spot some puffins from May to August.  Nature is unpredictable, and no two tours are exactly the same, so every trip is a new adventure. You might catch the whales jumping out of the ocean, socialising or feeding, and the cheerful dolphins riding the bow of the ship as you sail along the waters.  Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to see the magnificent whales and the rich wildlife of Skjálfandi bay.

Close Up | Whales, Puffins & Reykjavik Coast

Marvel over the bountiful marine and avian life just off the coast of Reykjavík with this whale- and puffin-watching tour. Conducted in a RIB boat, this excursion will get as close as possible to the animals, without disturbing their natural behaviour, and is sure to get your adrenaline pumping. Your RIB will be waiting for you at the floating pier by Reykjavík’s Old Harbour. Each boat has just twelve seats, ensuring a personal and intimate experience. After getting into your overalls and life-jacket, you’ll board, strap up, and zip out into Faxaflói Bay. Before reaching open water, you will be able to marvel over Reykjavík’s coastal landmarks. The most notable of these is the Harpa Concert Hall, an incredible feat of modern architecture, and the Sun Voyager, a beautiful sculpture representing adventure into the unknown. As you get further to sea, more scenery will unfold around you. You will be able to see the mountainous and verdant Hvalfjörður (Whale Fjord), and the barren and volcanic Reykjanes Peninsula. In particularly clear weather, you will be able to see all the way over to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. The wildlife you seek could appear at any time. The species that frequent Iceland’s waters most regularly are minke and humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins, and harbour porpoises. However, it is not unheard of to see other creatures, such as orcas, pilot whales, fin- and sei whales and the great blue whale (although rare in our waters). The guide on board is an expert at locating these cetaceans and can tell you all about them throughout the tour. Due to how small your vessel is, these explanations will hopefully go on when one of the marvellous creatures of the deep is mere metres away. Whales, dolphins and porpoises are not the only highlights of this tour, however. The birdwatching opportunities are also incredible. Dozens of species, such as kittiwakes, fulmar and arctic tern, can all be seen in the sky and water, and you are also very likely to see puffins (during the season 15 May - 15 August) as the puffins are here during that time for their annual breeding season. After admiring the marine life of Faxaflói bay, you will be whisked back to Reykjavík’s harbour. On the way back you have ample views of the bay’s surrounding areas and the astonishing view of the city from sea. Don’t miss this opportunity to see some of Iceland’s most beautiful animals!

Puffin Tour from Reykjavík

Marvel over Iceland’s most adorable creature on this affordable and rewarding puffin-watching tour. This trip leaves multiple times a day from Reykjavík throughout summer and lasts just an hour, so is perfect to fit around other plans. You will board your puffin-watching boat from Reykjavík’s Old Harbour, which is right beside the downtown area, and zip straight out onto the ocean. Your vessel has been doing this for seventeen years and is perfectly adapted for getting as close to the puffins as possible. Two islands just off the coast of the capital, Lundey and Akurey, are havens for these adorable little birds, and they take just fifteen minutes to reach.  You will visit whichever island is most convenient based on the weather. Both are very similar, however: picturesque, with rocky shores, little hills, and thousands upon thousands of birds. While puffins are, of course, the highlight of this trip, other species may peak your interest; Northern Fulmars, Arctic Terns, and Black Guillemots are all regularly seen. Your boat will work hard not to disturb the birds, but you will soon see that the puffins are well accustomed to being watched, and do not frighten easily. You can thus observe them knowing that the impact you are having on their nesting and feeding is absolutely minimal. You will be surprised how close you can get to them, and the binoculars on board allow your experience to be even more personal. There is an expert on Iceland’s birdlife on board with you, who will tell you about the puffins, other species, and the surrounding nature. They are, of course, more than happy to answer any questions that you may have. After spending half hour or so at either Lundey or Akurey, you will return to Reykjavík harbour, having had an excellent experience that barely scratched into your valuable time in this country. Enjoy Iceland’s cutest creature, on this affordable, convenient, and wonderful tour. Check availability by choosing a date.

You will also see a bizarre rock formation in a cliff that uncannily resembles the face of an elephant. Lovers of wildlife will rejoice on this tour. If taken before September, you will see thousands of nesting Atlantic Puffins. The Westman Islands have the highest proportion of these adorable birds out of anywhere in the world. You will see them on the isles and rocks with their lifelong partners, protecting their burrows, and in the waters, where they are feeding.  Because of the size of your speedboat, you will be able to approach the puffins very closely without being a disturbance, so you can properly admire their charming, colourful features. There is also a great chance you will spot whales on your trip. The Westman Islands have bountiful waters, with a lot of life, drawing all sorts of creatures, most notably Orcas and the second-largest species ever to live on earth, Fin Whales. Of course, you also may see Blue, Minke and Humpback Whales, as well as White-Beaked Dolphins and Harbour Porpoises. Witness the many islands and thriving wildlife of Vestmannæyjar on this boat tour from Heimaey. Check availability by choosing a date.

If you’re staying in the capital but wish to escape the city lights to bask in the glow of the Aurora Borealis, this is the excursion for you.  Your adventure begins at the scenic Old Harbour by Reykjavík's city centre. The Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre lights up the area with an incredible glass panel display, as you board your boat and set sails for Faxaflói Bay. Prepare to see the Reykjavík shoreline in all its glory, until you escape the lights and are greeted by the darkness of winter. If the skies are clear, you will see the stars of the night sky shine brighter than before, with the only beacon of light being the luminous Imagine Peace Tower, where it rests in the island of Viðey.  Then, prepare yourself for a stunning display of the Northern Lights, as they dance in an array of different colours, ranging from green and pink to purple and yellow. You will spend over an hour in the waters, but don’t worry about getting cold, since the boat boasts a cosy indoor cabin with a bar which you can retreat to at any time.  Your expert local guides will share captivating stories and mythical folklore about the Northern Lights from different cultures around the world, as well as explaining the quintessential science behind this incredible natural phenomenon of the Arctic night sky.  Now, the lights show up on their own accord and can never be unquestionably guaranteed, but by reading the cloud forecast and solar wind occurrences, the lights are often able to be calculated regarding their appearance.  If, however, the Aurora doesn’t show on the night of your cruise, don’t worry, you will receive a free voucher to try again on any other night. Make use of the darkness outside Reykjavík’s shores and book your Northern Lights cruise now. Check availability by choosing a date.

Big Whale Safari & Puffins | RIB Boat Tour from Húsavík

See the giants of the deep and the world’s most adorable bird on this boat trip from the whale-watching capital of Europe. Those with a passion for wildlife should make every effort to join this unbelievable tour. You will find your little whale watching boat at the harbour in the charming northern town of Húsavík. You’ll notice that it is much closer to the water, and with far fewer seats, than the larger vessels, which will allow you to have very intimate encounters with every creature you see. When everyone is in their overalls and lifejackets and has boarded, your boat will zip out into Skjálfandi Bay. It will not take long at all before the whales and dolphins of these arctic waters begin to show. The two most common species of cetacean here are both surface performers and acrobatics, making almost every sighting with them breathtaking. These are the mighty Humpback Whale and the gregarious White-beaked Dolphins. The next most common species, Minke Whales and Harbour Porpoises, are very charming, if a little less exciting. These, however, are not the only marine mammals you may see. Húsavík is the whale watching capital of Europe largely because of its incredible diversity; you have a decent chance of seeing Blue, Fin, Pilot and Beaked Whales, as well as orcas. The puffins are likely to be numerous throughout the tour. You may see them flapping wildly overhead, diving for fish, or just relaxing on the surface of the water. Your boat is small enough to approach their nesting islands up close, where you can see them protecting their burrows in lifelong pairs. The puffin season is from April 15th – August 20th. These islands, and the surrounding landscapes, are beautiful and dramatic, so any time where you are not marvelling over the animals, you can appreciate the stunning views. After you have seen what is likely to be a huge wealth of life, you will return to Húsavík’s harbour. Witness Iceland’s incredible animals on this once-in-a-lifetime tour.

This excursion is fully guided by a knowledgeable, qualified and English-speaking tour leader who will be quick not only to provide you with all necessary equipment, including a dry suit, kayak and paddles, but will also teach you about the area’s incredible culture and history. As an added security, this tour only uses SIT ON TOP kayaks, a particular type that is far wider than usual, thus more stable.

The vibrant wildlife? The astonishing floating icebergs? Nowhere else in Iceland can match Jökulsárlón for its eclectic beauty.  After your time kayaking on the lagoon is over, you are recommended to check out the nearby Diamond Beach, found only a few minutes walk away from the lagoon. Here, icebergs that float out from Jökulsárlón often washed ashore onto the beach’s black volcanic sands, making for a fantastic, stark contrast in colour.  So, time to paddle up-creek with this fantastic kayaking tour at Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, one of the most beautiful natural sites to be found in Iceland.

Baldur Ferry from the Snaefellsnes Peninsula to the Westfjords | Via Flatey Island

Explore the magnificent Westfjords with ease by booking this ferry service from the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. Those who want to witness the beauty of Iceland in a unique way should not miss out on this opportunity. The ferry Baldur runs throughout the year, taking guests from the town of Stykkishólmur on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula to Brjánslækur in the Westfjords via the island of Flatey. Stykkishólmur is just under two and a half hours’ drive from Reykjavík and the largest town in the area. Of course, you can bring your car onto the ferry in preparation for your trip. While you can drive from Stykkishólmur to the Westfjords, this journey is quicker and allows you to take a break from wheel to witness the incredible nature of Breiðafjörður Bay. Northwards, creeping ever closer as you travel, you will be able to see the spectacular tabletop mountains and deep, magnificent fjords that define your destination. Southwards, the Snæfellsnes Peninsula will unfold, revealing countless volcanic peaks and providing you with an unmatched view of the Snæfellsjökull glacier. You'll stop at the island of Flatey, once an epicentre of religion, culture and the arts. This hidden gem has a fascinating history but is visited by very few guests. In the summertime, if you take the earlier ferry, you have the option of disembarking and spending a couple of hours exploring the quaint island community before catching the next boat to continue your journey to the Westfjords. Cars are not allowed on Flatey so if you choose to make a stop, you will have to give a member of staff the keys to your car and they will park it on the other side for you to collect upon arrival. You will have a chance to look out for some of Iceland’s wildlife. The islands of the bay are renowned for their seabirds, being a particular favourite nesting ground for white-tailed eagles. The waters of Breiðafjörður are also home to many seals. The Baldur ferry is very spacious, with comfortable seating indoors and plenty of space to marvel over the views on deck. There is also a restaurant with an extensive menu and a Children’s Corner where the young ones can watch television and play. Pets are permitted in certain areas on board, and there is free wifi throughout. Your destination, Brjánslækur, is a gateway to the Westfjords. It provides an excellent point from which to explore this remote and beautiful region, with its accessibility to sites such as the unbelievable Látrabjarg birdwatching cliffs and magnificent waterfall of Dynjandi. Hop on board the Baldur ferry for a wonderful trip to one of Iceland’s most spectacular regions. Check availability by choosing a date.

Baldur Ferry from the Westfjords to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula | Via Flatey Island

Reach the beautiful Snæfellsnes Peninsula from the Westfjords by ferry with this direct, convenient, affordable boat tour. This trip should not be missed by those eager to visit as many sites in Iceland as possible in a unique and stress-free way. This ferry service begins in the port of Brjánslækur in the Westfjords, which serves as somewhat of a gateway to this remote and beautiful region. The Westfjords is the oldest and one of the remotest parts of the country, with unbelievable nature that all guests with enough time should try to visit. The ferry, called Baldur, has space for guests to park their cars and a wealth of services for their enjoyment. Free wifi is available throughout the vessel, there is a restaurant called Bára that offers hot and cold food and drinks, and the Children’s Corner will keep the young ones entertained while the adults enjoy a beverage or the views out on deck. There are even designated areas where you can bring your pets. The ferry Baldur takes approximately two and a half hours to cross Breiðafjörður bay. This shaves an hour off of the car journey and enables you to focus on the wonderful surrounding nature, not just the road ahead. The panoramas here are beautiful, revealing incredible fjords to the north and the spectacular volcanoes of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula to the south. The bay is also littered with many islands, one of which is Flatey; a small, largely flat island with a history dating back almost a millennium. Once a cultural epicentre, it now just has five year-round residents, making it a true hidden gem of Iceland. If you are taking the earlier boat in the summertime, you could opt to spend a few hours on the island to stretch your legs, enjoy the cafe or have a picnic in the fresh sea air before heading on to Stykkishólmur. Be sure to let a member of staff know of these plans as you board the boat. As you sail across the bay, you can keep your eyes peeled for wildlife. Though whales and dolphins are rarely found in these waters, you may spot seals and a wealth of seabirds, including white-tailed eagles. Once your ferry arrives in Stykkishólmur, you can drive off and begin to explore another of Iceland’s beautiful regions, Snæfellsnes. Be sure, however, to have a little look around the peninsula’s largest town first, to take in its folklore, history and culture. Make your journey travelling around Iceland a little more unique and exciting, and give yourself a few hours away from the wheel, by booking this ferry transfer now.

Puffin Watching Tour on Breidafjordur Bay

Join us on out on Breiðarfjörður bay for a day of puffin spotting, on one of our well-equipped sightseeing boats. Our boats are typical Icelandic fishing boats, which are especially useful for nature and bird watching because we can get closer to the puffins and other birds nestled in the many small isles than on other bigger boats. Our ambition is offering excellent service for all of our guests. The Puffin tour starts in Stykkishólmur. From there we sail to the island that is the main settlement for puffins on the bay: Elliðaey. The island is full of puffins, and during high puffin season around the middle of July, there are about 2000 couples nesting in the island. This is not at all unusual, as the islands in Breiðafjörður are full of birdlife during summertime; among other birds to see are kittiwake, cormorants, arctic terns, white-tailed eagles and many more. Elliðaey is a beautiful island which was inhabited until the year 1950. You can still see the buildings in the islands: a house, barn and a lighthouse. The family that lived on the island from 1922 to 1950 were lighthouse keepers. Even though they do not live there anymore, the family still takes care of the island and the properties on it. There is a lot of history connected to the islands on Breiðafjörður bay that you will discover on our tour. This trip is ideal for taking pictures of puffin as we can go very close to the cliffs of the islands, without disturbing the birds. We will then sail around the island and take a look at beautiful basalt columns. After we have explored the island, we head to a place where seals are often spotted. After that, we go back to Stykkishólmur. As we sail, there is always a chance to see something remarkable, like eagles and dolphins, which also inhabit the bay.  Don't miss the opportunity for a visit to the Breiðafjörður bay.

Northern Lights by Boat with Backup Activities for Bad Weather

Don’t be left with nothing to do on a winter night in Iceland, by booking this Northern Lights cruise that guarantees a back-up tour if the weather is unfavourable. This is the perfect way to make sure you won’t be disappointed by a planned night in Reykjavík. All going to plan, you will take the tour detailed below, but in case of bad weather, you will instead go for a guided tour to the Whale of Iceland Exhibition by the harbour. This fantastic museum has life-sized models of all 23 whale and dolphin species seen around Iceland. You’ll get a complimentary drink, and, of course, a ticket to try northern lights hunting another night. If the sky is clear and the forecast good, however, you’ll board a ship at the same harbour, and set off onto Faxaflói Bay. As the sky darkens, you’ll keep your eyes peeled for any sign of the incredible, ethereal aurora borealis. When they start to descend, you’ll be in awe of their surreal beauty. Greens, purples, and a range of other colours swirl and dance amongst a canopy of stars like something from another world. The sea is one of the best places to watch nature’s greatest show, as the only light pollution will be from the distant city lights of Reykjavík. While you wait for the lights (or after them), you are welcome to stay warm indoors on the boat; there is a large, heated cabin with comfortable seats, complete with restrooms and a cafe. After two hours, hopefully, complete with a fantastic show, you’ll be returned to Reykjavík’s harbour. If you were not lucky enough to see the auroras, you will get a ticket to try again. Witness the Northern Lights, or visit a fantastic museum and try again the next night, with this flexible tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
