Day 6 - Whale Watching Tour (included in package price)
Departure from Reykjavik harbour, choose from up to 5 different departure times depending on the month you are travelling. Summer season is great for whale watching, as the wildlife in the bay is at its highest peak. This is the time when the minke whales are at their most abundant, along with the white-beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises and humpback whales, giving us the chance to enjoy and understand them in their natural environment. During the puffin season, mid May to mid August, we stop by one of the puffin islands for a closer look at these charismatic birds.

Reykjavik is an exciting modern city with lots to see and do. Relax in one of the many spas and swimming pools or book one of our fantastic day tours such as whale watching, snorkelling and caving. We will send you plenty of suggestions of what to do with your free day including the “must see´s” in the city.
