The meeting point is at the Old Harbor in the downtown area, at Special Tours Ticket Office, located at Ægisgarður 13.
The adventure begins as we head out North of the peninsula. There is no shortage of whales in Faxafjói bay, and we'll continue with butterflies in our stomachs.
Usually, we don't need to wait long before it happens. It often seems like the whales simply wait for us to show off their acrobatic skills! The most common sights are humpback and minke whales, both known for their curiosity. Humpbacks also show their incredibly picturesque jump up from the ocean. It is pretty hard to imagine such a gigantic creature being able to jump this high from the sea, but you will be surprised!
Other common sights include dolphins and porpoises, adding a certain cuteness factor to the whole experience. Your expert guides will keep you entertained with knowledge and fun facts about the whales and other wildlife in the area and make sure you don't miss out on when the ocean giants decide to pop up.
After enjoying the company of the ocean royals, you will be taken back to the old harbor. You will have time to roam around the charismatic Reykjavík, catch some dinner or do some shopping before being picked up for your Northern Lights experience of the night.
