Tour description

The Whales of Iceland Exhibition is a fantastic addition to our whale watching tours! You will get to learn even more about the whales that live in Faxaflói Bay and around Iceland during your visit. Whales of Iceland features 23 life-size, hand-painted whale models. Enjoy this unique experience to walk through the world of whales, enjoying the soothing whale songs, ambient underwater lighting and beach-like floors. You can see just how big these amazing cetaceans actually are while you stand next to the models – and you are welcome to touch and explore each whale!

The latest addition to Whales of Iceland is the Fin Whale Room. This room highlights the various threats (and their solutions) that marine mammals face today. The film Sonic Sea plays daily at 11:00 and 15:00 in the room, and features incredible underwater footage of whales throughout the day.

A daily live-guided tour is also available for free for all ticket holders at 10:30 and 13:30.

Whales of Iceland is located just 15 minutes walking distance from our ticket office in the Old Harbour, in the Grandi area. Grandi continues to grow and welcome additional museums, shops and restaurants. Once you have experienced all that the exhibition has to offer you can finish your visit with a freshly baked pastry & cup of coffee in their Whale Cafe. Make sure to purchase a souvenir in their gift shop on the way out – this unique shop has a variety of souvenirs from local and international artists.
