Experience 2 of Iceland's most iconic attractions on a combined, 2-part whale watching and Northern Lights tour. Cruise Faxafloi Bay in the daytime looking for whales, and then return in the evening to see the magical Northern Lights from the sea.


  • Experience the beauty of Faxafloi Bay by day and at night
  • Look for minke whales, harbor porpoise and other wildlife
  • Benefit from warm seating areas and overalls
  • Take a night cruise to see the Northern Lights from the water
  • Stay connected and share your experience with the free on-board Wi-Fi


Depart from Reykjavik's Old Harbour for an approximately 3-hour whale watching cruise in Faxafloi Bay. Take some stunning photos of the city and surrounding mountains and scenery as you set sail. On a clear day the views can extend as far as Snæfells Glacier in the west of Iceland. Reach the whale watching area in approximately 30 to 45 minutes, listening to your guide's explanations along the way. Hear more about the whales on arrival, and look for the magnificent creatures with the help of your guide. Keep a look out for minke whales, white-beaked dolphins, harbor porpoises and the great humpback whale. Be mesmerized if a curious whale comes close to the boat! Then, return to the boat in the evening and look for the magical Northern Lights in the sky. Although dependent on the conditions, the lights can be seen throughout the winter months, and even as early as September. Get outfitted in your warm overalls and cruise out to sea just outside Reykjavik city center. Benefit from being away from the artificial lights to enjoy every moment of the Northern Lights. Sightings can never be guaranteed, but after years of experience - and with a little luck - your on-board experience will be truly memorable. Feel free to move around the boat, both inside and outside, and purchase drinks from the always-open bar.
