Activity description

Discover Iceland's wildlife on a whale and puffin watching boat trip from Reykjavik!

Set off from Reykjavik in a comfortable semi-rigid boat. Suitable for small groups of up to 14 people, your boat will take you through the waters of the Atlantic in search of whales and puffins!

Your guide will accompany you on this adventure, and you'll learn more about Iceland's wildlife thanks to his commentary and wealth of knowledge.

You'll leave Iceland's capital and head for Faxaflói Bay on your whale and puffin watching safari. Your excursion into the heart of nature will give you unique panoramic views of the ocean. This walk will cover a vast area, increasing your chances of encountering whales, dolphins and other animals. You'll also have the chance to see puffins, small seabirds with red beaks, from May to August.

To round off your whale and puffin watching safari, the boat will sail close to Reykjavik and along the coastline, giving you a panoramic view of the capital from the sea.

Book your whale and puffin watching safari from Reykjavik now and discover Iceland's wildlife up close!
