Explore the wonders of Faxa Bay in search of whales, dolphins, and puffins. Escape the crowds and enjoy a personal luxury yacht cruise with fewer passengers and a more bespoke service.


  • Discover the wildlife of the bay
  • Admire the beautiful coastline and the islands near Reykjavik
  • See various sea birds, including puffins during the summer


Your tour begins with you traveling along the beautiful coastline of Reykjavik, before you head out to Faxafloi Bay in search of whales. The minke whale and humpback whale are the main goal of this tour, the giants of the ocean. With a bit of luck you may even spot a group of white-beaked dolphins and harbor porpoises. There's also a good chance that you will observe different sea birds and puffins throughout the summer. Throughout the summer you can visit one of the puffin islands to see the puffins, with the view of the landscape making a magnificent backdrop behind the wild animals you might spot. This activity enables you to escape the crowds and benefit from a luxury yacht cruise, with fewer passengers and more personal service on board. The yacht is stable and the crew aim to assist you by adjusting your camera to capture the best possible photos. On board you can discover information and educational material about the whales and birds, and your crew is always on the watch for whales and birds, informing you as soon as they catch sight of them. If it gets chilly, you can wrap up in the warm blankets provided and enjoy a complimentary hot drink and Icelandic pastry.
