Good to know
- Akureyri: breathtaking view of the Eyjafjordur
- Whale watching
- We will jump on board a boat moored a few metres from the port of Akureyri.
- Our adventure will start right after being greeted by members of the crew - the boat will leave from Eyjafjordur ('Island Fjord'), where we will be able to admire the beauty of the snowy mountains that create the longest fjord in northern Iceland.
- A biologist will be our guide to see the Ocean's gentle giants - he will provide us with information and curiosities regarding the many species we will meet during our excursion and advise us on how to make the most of this experience.
- Leaving Akureyri, we will have a 95% chance of seeing the 20 whale species that live in the Ocean north of Iceland - during this amazing outing, popular with both adults and kids, we might see blue whales, humpback whales, killer whales and even dolphins.
- In addition to the whales, we will also get the chance to meet other inhabitants of the area such as the cute Puffins, the symbol of Iceland.
- We recommend taking a camera with you, because these animals can often be seen together, creating an exalting spectacle, thus enabling us to take home breathtaking photographs.
- By behaving properly, we can get the whales to trust us and accompany us for many hours - we will be part of their dances, encompassed by their splashes and charmed by their singing.
- We will then head back while reciprocating the solemn wave of their tales.
