Itinerary

Introduction

The day begins with a whale-watching tour that leaves from Dalvik, taking us to the deep blue depths of the North Atlantic Ocean, renowned for being one of the best places to see whales in all of Europe. Our Dalvik whale watching tours have an average success rate of 98%, so hopefully, we'll spot something! Upon our return to dry land, we will settle down for a delicious Icelandic barbeque, with fresh fish at the very top of the menu, before finishing at the weird and wacky beer spa, where you can enjoy some refreshing golden delights while soaking in fermenting beer.

Our exciting whale watching adventure begins in Dalvik, a picturesque harbor town, which looks out across the North Atlantic Ocean. Once we are out on the water, our expert captain will take us to the spot that he believes gives us the best chance of encountering these regal giants of the deep. Using a combination of local knowledge, sea patterns and weather patterns these expert seamen have an average success rate of 98%, meaning that it's quite likely that we will see something. 

Humpback whales are especially common in the area and seeing these gargantuan creatures frolic in the waters is a profound experience that will give you a new perspective on just how great wildlife can be. We also regularly see white-beaked dolphins, minke whales, and harbor porpoises, along with a plethora of incredible birds. If we are really lucky, then we may spot the elusive blue whale, the largest creature to ever inhabit the planet or the iconic black and white, orca, renowned for its intelligence. 

Sea Fishing & Tasting

We will also do a spot of traditional Icelandic sea angling, with cod, haddock, pollock, or Atlantic catfish the most common fish that we reel in. Once we have returned to dry land, we will enjoy a traditional Icelandic fish barbeque, using the fresh fish that we have just caught. The perfect time to reflect on all the amazing things that we have seen and take in Dalvik’s awe-inspiring mountainous terrain.

Man relaxing in a beer spa hot tub in Iceland

We will end this magical adventure with a truly unique experience: in Iceland’s first and only beer spa, which is located in Arskogssandur. Here, you will be able to kick back and relax in a bubbling tub of fermenting beer, whose yeast is famed for its health benefits. Each tub comes equipped with a separate barrel, of mature Icelandic beer: what better way to appreciate this unique experience than with a refreshing glass of golden wonder. The whole process lasts around 25 minutes, with plenty more beer-tasting options available in the bar area, this tour is perfect for anyone who loves beer.
