Whale Watching in Húsavík | Private RIB Boat Tour

Join this thrilling and private whale watching tour from Húsavík harbour, using intimate RIB boats to get up and close and personal with these gentle giants. This is a fantastic tour opportunity for those visitors looking to see whales during their time in Iceland, but wish to avoid the larger vessels and crowds. Húsavík is widely regarded to be the whale watching capital of Iceland, if not Europe, thanks to the diversity and frequency of whales using the fjord. You will be whale watching in Skjálfandi Bay, an area renown for its rich wildlife, Víknafjöll and Kinnarfjöll mountain ranges and two Puffin islands, Flatey and Lundy. Taking out to the water, you will be wrapped up warm in thick thermal outerwear, leaving you free of the cold to sit back and peel your eyes across the rocking waves of the Atlantic, looking for any sign of life. Thankfully, there are twenty different species of cetacean in Iceland, the most common being Humpback and Minke whales. There is always the chance to observe even rarer species; Orcas, Harbour Porpoises, Blue Whales, etc.Another great positive about this experience? By using a smaller vessel, such as a RIB, your captain is able to get much closer to where these animals are swimming. This is because smaller boats make far less noise, and are thus less likely to deter the whales, thus providing a more personal and memorable experience. After two hours of cruising the ocean, you begin the make the return journey back to the harbour. On your way, you will likely pass one of the numerous nesting Puffin colonies that live in the area; just another fantastic reason to come aboard!So don't delay any longer. Hurry now and you too can go whale watching in Húsavík using the nimble RIB boat. Check availability by choosing a date.

Northern Lights Private Excursion | From Reykjavik

Make the most of one of Iceland's most ethereal phenomena, and book this Northern Lights private tour. This excursion will reveal to you Iceland's beautiful landscapes at night, as well as the unbelievable northern lights, without all the crowds.You and your group will be picked up in the evening, and immediately taken out of Reykjavík to escape the city lights of the capital. Where you go depends entirely on the forecast; your guide will need to find a place with little cloud cover, no light pollution, unblocked views of the sky and, for your personal enjoyment, somewhere that the clogged tour buses will not be going.This means that anywhere in west and south Iceland could be visited on this tour. You may, for example, head to the barren and haunting Reykjanes Peninsula, renowned for its many lava fields and its dramatic volcanoes, or perhaps the historic and beautiful Þingvellir National Park. As you will hunt for three hours, there are many great destinations you may see by night.Your guide is an expert on the surrounding landscapes, the science behind the auroras, where to find them, and how to best photograph them. This means that when they start to descend in the sky, your guide will be able to help you capture your memory forever.The majesty of the Northern Lights must be seen to be believed. Swirling beautifully over the landscapes, they are usually green but can often also be purple, red, pink, white and even blue. Because the auroras are a natural phenomenon, they are not 100% guaranteed even on clear nights with a great forecast. If you do not see them—or if your tour is cancelled due to adverse conditions—you will have another opportunity to seek them out again for free.Do not miss your chance to tick 'seeing the aurora borealis' off of your bucket list.

Private Snaefellsnes Peninsula Day Tour | Small Group Experience

Snæfellsnes Peninsula – Dramatic Landscape and Tranquil Nature. Visiting Snæfellsnes is a shortcut to getting to know Icelandic Nature.

From there we head towards the Snæfellsnes peninsula. The peninsula is the home to 7 different municipalities with population of few dozen up to few hundred people.

The last eruption took place about 1800 years ago, but the volcano has been dormant since and hopefully stays that way. Arnarstapi village is a very pretty little town where we stop to soak in the beautiful harbour area and basalt cliffs with nesting birds in the summer.   On the northern side of the peninsula we stop at Kirkjufell Mountain and give everyone a chance to photograph the well-known mountain that served as a backdrop in the HBO series Game of Thrones  The driving distance of the day is around 400 kilometres and total driving time is around 4 hours 30 minutes, but this is divided into shorter journeys between the stops. Lunch is not included but you will be able to buy something to eat at a cafe/restaurant during the day The weather is always a major player when traveling in Iceland, so a good idea is to bring with you warm clothes, waterproof jacket and trousers and sturdy shoes. bring warm hat, scarf and gloves.

Join this thrilling and private whale watching tour from Húsavík harbour, using intimate RIB boats to get up and close and personal with these gentle giants. This is a fantastic tour opportunity for those visitors looking to see whales during their time in Iceland, but wish to avoid the larger vessels and crowds. Húsavík is widely regarded to be the whale watching capital of Iceland, if not Europe, thanks to the diversity and frequency of whales using the fjord.

By using a smaller vessel, such as a RIB, your captain is able to get much closer to where these animals are swimming. This is because smaller boats make far less noise, and are thus less likely to deter the whales, thus providing a more personal and memorable experience. After two hours of cruising the ocean, you begin the make the return journey back to the harbour. On your way, you will likely pass one of the numerous nesting Puffin colonies that live in the area; just another fantastic reason to come aboard!So don't delay any longer.

Northern Lights Private Excursion | From Reykjavik

Make the most of one of Iceland's most ethereal phenomena, and book this Northern Lights private tour. This excursion will reveal to you Iceland's beautiful landscapes at night, as well as the unbelievable northern lights, without all the crowds.You and your group will be picked up in the evening, and immediately taken out of Reykjavík to escape the city lights of the capital. Where you go depends entirely on the forecast; your guide will need to find a place with little cloud cover, no light pollution, unblocked views of the sky and, for your personal enjoyment, somewhere that the clogged tour buses will not be going.This means that anywhere in west and south Iceland could be visited on this tour. You may, for example, head to the barren and haunting Reykjanes Peninsula, renowned for its many lava fields and its dramatic volcanoes, or perhaps the historic and beautiful Þingvellir National Park. As you will hunt for three hours, there are many great destinations you may see by night.Your guide is an expert on the surrounding landscapes, the science behind the auroras, where to find them, and how to best photograph them. This means that when they start to descend in the sky, your guide will be able to help you capture your memory forever.The majesty of the Northern Lights must be seen to be believed. Swirling beautifully over the landscapes, they are usually green but can often also be purple, red, pink, white and even blue. Because the auroras are a natural phenomenon, they are not 100% guaranteed even on clear nights with a great forecast. If you do not see them—or if your tour is cancelled due to adverse conditions—you will have another opportunity to seek them out again for free.Do not miss your chance to tick 'seeing the aurora borealis' off of your bucket list.
