Whale watching & Blue Lagoon
This tour starts from the down town harbour in Reykjavik and we sail out into Faxaflói Bay to go whale watching. Some common sights you could see on this tour are the Humpback whale, the minke whale, the white-beaked dolphins, and the harbour porpoise.
Our experienced guides provide you with friendly commentary during the tour and let you know about any sightings and what’s happening with the marine life in the surrounding waters. No two whale watching trips are the same. We’re careful about observing the weather forecasts, the conditions at sea and the seasons to make sure that your trip is safe and happy.
As our whale watching adventure travels up to 15 nautical miles from the mainland, it’s important to us that you’re toasty and warm, so we have special suits for you to wear. However, we also advise you to wear warm clothes and bring along your hat and scarf. On board we’ve a selection of hot drinks and snacks in our café and you have the option of sitting outside and keeping a watchful eye on the action or staying inside the boat in the warmth, where you’re able to see what’s happening through the boat’s large windows.
After the whale watching tour, we offer you a free visit to explore the Whale Exhibition Centre to learn more about the sea birds and whales that make Iceland their home. Or, you might decide to have a quick lunch before we move on to our second tour of the day. At 12:30 we offer a pick-up service at the harbor that takes you back to our office. Alternatively, if you’d like a walk, you can choose to go on foot to our office which will take you 10-15 minutes. We ask you to be at our office at 12:50 at the latest so that we can make sure we leave at 13.00 for The Blue Lagoon.
There are a number of options at the lagoon. You can relax and soak in the soothing blue waters and truly pamper yourself, visit the geothermal steam bath for a cleanse, stand under the waterfall for a water massage, or you could book yourself in for a one of a range of Blue Lagoon treatments. And maybe afterwards, you’d like to dine in “Lava” the Blue Lagoon’s elegant restaurant.
You can choose to travel back to Reykjavik at a time that fits in with your schedule, which means there’s all the time in the world for you to enjoy the facilities the lagoon has to offer. The return bus trip takes about 50 minutes and buses leave at 15:00, 17:15 19:00 and 21:00.
