Whale Watching

Whale Watching

Watching whales is one of the most popular activities among foreign visitors in North Iceland. Húsavík and Eyjafjörður were among the first places in the country as a whole that offered whale-watching excursions.

The number of species, along with favourable weather and sea conditions, make North Iceland one of the best Icelandic areas for spotting whales. Skjálfandi is a sheltered bay,  and Eyjafjörður is the longest fjord in Iceland, making the locations perfect for a boat ride almost all year long, surrounded by birds and beautiful scenery.

The experience becomes complete by seeing dolphins and minke, humpback, or even blue whales play beside one of the particularly appealing oakwood boats used exclusively in North Iceland. A RIB boat tour is ideal for those who choose smaller groups and closer proximity to the whales.
