WHALE WATCHING 

Adventures at sea all year round from Reykjavik Old Harbour

Daily whale watching tours all year round from Reykjavik with our fantastic Pink Partner and super gay friendly Elding Reykjavik Whale Watching.  

Conveniently located in Reykjavík's old harbour, a few hour tour with Elding can bring you up close to whales and birds in their natural habitat all year round. The drama, joy and poetry of these beautiful whales are seen on more than 95% of the tours. Elding's whale watching tours are wildlife excursions and therefore each tour is unique. Tourists delight in the sightings of minke and humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises and various sea birds such as puffins, gannets, guillemots, gulls, kittiwakes, arctic terns and many more depending on the season. To ensure that the animals are not disturbed by our presence, we sail at a constant speed towards their habitat. This also is part of our sustainability policy as we try to minimize oil use and pollution.



Whale Watching tours are offered daily all year round but they are weather permitting, tours might be cancelled with a short notice due to inconvenient sea conditions.
