Whale Watching & Northern lights Combo cruise from Reykjavik

Certified Operator     Tour Operator: Reykjavik Sailors     6 hours     Travel method: Boat     Region: Capital Region

Whale watching tour starts at 9am and 1pm/2pm and will last for two up to three hours.

We sail into Faxafloi bay in search of Minke and Humpback whales, Dolphins and Harbor porpoises. On this tour you will also experience the spectacular views of the mountains and islands around Reykjavik as well as the wonderful bird life. On board we have warm overalls, heated spacious indoor cabins, a nice bar and free wi-fi.  After that you’ll have time ashore to get yourself ready for the northern lights frenzy. The second part starts at 9pm/10pm and lasts 2-2,5 hours. Experience the Northern Lights Like Never Before. You would like to head out on an adventure that will leave you feeling breathless, and we want to give you the opportunity to do just that. We would like to take you on an experience that you will remember forever, guiding you on a Northern Lights tour by sea in Iceland.

It’s a unique experience to see the Northern lights from sea. You can relax in a nice atmosphere in our warm overalls and enjoy snacks and refreshments available on board.
