Eyes and ears alert and attentive, scanning the waters for signs of movement, hearing nothing but your pounding heart then bam the unmistakable sound of a whale exhaling at the waters surface breaks the silence and you catch a glimpse of the enormous mammal... it's breathtaking,... you suddenly realise how small you are and you gaze in awe, lost for words...
Iceland is a fantastic destination for whale watching - as well as hikes to destinations locals refer to as whale watching observation points we offer holidays with whale watching boat trips and the chance to sea kayak near the majestic mammals!
Please note that we take our responsible tourism policies very seriously.
We only work with reputable local whale watching companies and our guides/skippers who lead our kayaking and sailing expeditions are
experts in marine life. When we venture into whale territory we are always
cautious, these intelligent giants deserve the upmost respect we will only
approach them if it is appropriate.
