Reykjavík Premium Whales in the Midnight Sun
What better to fully experience the uniqueness of those bright Icelandic summer nights than out on the waters in the midnight sun. Experience the wildlife and nature adventure of a lifetime on our most personal whale watching tour.
Duration: Approx.2 hrs.
Available: 1 June - 20 August
Our custom made RIB boats allow you to get closer the whales and puffins than any boats can offer. These fast, stable and safe boats also allow us to cover more area as we search for the wild life, thus increasing your chances of spotting whales, dolphins and birdlife.
This great whale watching tour starts from the old harbour of Reykjavík and we first visit the puffins in their natural habitat on the islands in the bay. Next we head out in search of the whales. Few things will beat the experience of seeing the whales and dolphins as up close as you can from our RIB boats. After our whale safari we travel back to Reykjavík, where we will take ride along the cities shore line, viewing it from the sea. Including a stop at the harbour side of Iceland's most famous building, the glittering Harpa Concert Hall.
