The most frequently seen whales in Faxafloi bay are white-beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises, minke whales and humpbacks. Among birds that may be spotted are various gulls, gannets, cormorants ans the Arctic tern. Between May and September, you may also see puffins.
As a part of your tour you also have access to the floating Whale Exhibition Centre at Reykjavik Harbour.
The other tour in this combination takes you to the Golden Circle, comprised of Þingvellir National Park, Gullfoss waterfall and the Geysir hot spring area. Þingvellir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where you can walk between the continents of Europe and America.
Next there is the majestic Gullfoss waterfall, Iceland's most famous waterfall. It is located in the popular rafting river Hvita and plummets down 32 meters into the river gorge. You can stand close enough to the edge of the waterfall to feel the water on your face.
Last, but not least, is the Geysir geothermal area, with its hot pools and the hot springs, the most famous being Geysir and Strokkur. The former no longer erupts but the latter is a mighty one, erupting every 4-8 minutes at an average height of 15-20 meters, sometimes as high as 40 meters. Truly a breathtaking sight.
