Tour description

The Whales of Iceland Exhibition is such a great addition to our whale watching tours! You will get to learn even more about the whales that live on Faxaflói bay and around Iceland and enjoy their amazing man-made, hand-painted, life-size whale models. Its such a unique experience to walk through this wonder world with soothing whale sounds, ambient underwater lighting and beach-like floors.

In only a 15 minute walk from the old harbour you will get to the exhibition, in an old fishing industry area that has in recent years been renovated for museums, shops & restaurants. Once you have experienced all the exhibition has to offer you can finish with a freshly baked pastry & a cup of coffee in their café. If you just loove whales and would like to take one home, you can of course get a sneaky souvenir on the way out.
