Special Tours


Adventure Sea angling Day tours Whale watching Family fun

Special Tours has insulated overalls for everyone and indoor seating, in case it gets too cold.

If you want to have an unforgettable sea tour experience, try Special Tours. They offer two types of Whale Watching from Reykjavik and various other sea adventures. You can choose between the fast & luxurious boat Rósin (The Rose) or one of the biggest whale watching boats in Iceland (Andrea) that provides good comfort and great inside and outside viewing areas in a safe and family friendly environment.

Whale Watching Express (2-2.5 hours)
For those on a tight schedule, Rósin is a fast cruiser, so the tour takes 2-2.5 hours at the most, covering a larger search area due to its speed and you spend less time waiting and more whale watching!

Whale Watching Andrea (3-3.5 hours)
The Andrea has a more interactive and educational and focus, the passengers get to examine specimens from the ocean under a microscope, to handle whale bones and teeth, and to actively participate in actual whale research by marking sightings on an ocean map.

Puffin Express (1 hour)
If you’re in Iceland in the summer, Special Tours also offer puffin watching tours called 'Puffin Express'. During each trip, they go as close as possible to the puffin islands in their specially designed boat while a licensed guide tells visitors all about the puffins and other birds that might turn up during the sailing. Puffin express can guarantee 100% viewing.

Sea Angling (2.5-3 hours)
Special Tours also offer daily sea angling adventures out of Reykjavík. A 100% catch is guaranteed as the captain and crew are all skilled fishermen. You can keep your catch or cook and eat it on board!

Northern Lights by Boat (2-3 hours)
Finally, there is the Northern Lights Iceland tour, an amazing hunt for the northern lights by boat. With the city lights in the background and the auroras dancing above you, you will have an unforgettable experience, that's for sure.
