Description

Enjoy a memorable whale watching tour and exhibition visit in Reykjavik. Whale watching is a unique experience and Iceland has in recent years become one of the best countries in the world for well-organized excursions. All year round you’ll be able to see a variety of whales off the Reykjavik coast. Minke and humpback whales, dolphins, and harbor porpoises are among the species often spotted along the coast of Iceland. Your 3-hour program begins in the Vesturbugt Harbor area, located in downtown Reykjavik. Your dedicated tour guides will provide you with the best whale watching experience possible. The summer is the peak season for spotting all sorts of wildlife. Visit the Whales of Iceland exhibition, the largest of its kind in Europe. Nowhere else can you stand face-to-face with so many whale species, all of which have been found in Icelandic waters through the ages. Marvel at the 25-meter-long blue whale, the full-size sperm whale (like the one in Moby Dick), the critically endangered North Atlantic right whale, and many others. At the exhibition you can learn about the life and behavior of these giants of the sea as well as listen to their singing and look into their eyes. The experience, being surrounded by these giants of the sea, is a unique one that’s appealing to both adults and children. The interactive stations are based on the latest scientific data. You can, for example, learn about the biology of the Minke whale and follow the migration routes of whales that have been tagged and monitored by satellite. Whale watching is a natural activity that is subject to the weather. If the trip is canceled due to bad weather, the whale watching part of the ticket will be refunded. If there are no sightings during the trip, then you have the option to go again.
