Elding Reykjavík Whale Watching

Elding operates whale watching tours from the Reykjavík harbour all year round. Elding offers you a chance to see some of the 20 different cetaceans in their natural habitat, with your own eyes! The two mixing currents and the long summer daylight combined with the depth of the bay makes it extreamly favourable feeding area for whales. During the summer months, birds will migrate before our very eyes and give us treats of playful banter amongst themselves. Humpback whales, minke whales, white beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises are the most common sea animals we’ll run into.

What's Included?

Please Note

It is always colder on the water than on land so wear good sturdy shoes, dress warmly and put on the provided warm overalls when needed. 

For optimal viewing and a more enjoyable cruise this tour is weather dependent. 
We abide by a Code of Conduct for responsible whale watching. Thus each encounter is on the animals terms and distance may be kept to minimise disturbance.
