This is the perfect whale watching combo tour, offering you a Big Experience of whales from both land and sea!

While looking at the whales in the bay, you might not fully understand how giant these animals are.

This combo tour admission allows you to experience the different whales found around Iceland from both land and sea. So entry to the Whales of Iceland is included in your Whale Watching ticket

Before or after your boat tour, we recommend visiting the Whales of Iceland Exhibition on the other side of Reykjavik’s Old Harbour area. The Whales of Iceland Exhibition showcases 23 life-size whale models with a lot of in-depth information, interactive experiences, and underwater footage of whales shown on an 8-meter screen. Part of the exhibition focuses on conservation, where whales’ multiple threats (and their solutions) are showcased today. The exhibition gives you a feeling of how small we are compared to the ocean wildlife.

On the Whale Watching tour, you will check in at the Special Tours Ticket Office in Reykjavik’s Old Harbour before you sail out to Faxaflói Bay. Here we will search for the most common whales in the area, such as humpback whalesminke whaleswhite-beaked dolphins, and harbor porpoises

During the tour, we observe their behavior in the wild while learning more about them from one of your expert guides. If there are no sightings on our tours, you are entitled to a ticket to try again for free.
