Go whale watching under the midnight sun – a unique experience during your stay in Iceland!

Tour description

During the summer months we have nearly 24 hours of daylight, which allows us to operate the fantastic Midnight Sun whale watching tour. There’s something extra-special about seeing whales in the evening, surrounded by the glow from an evening sun reflecting off the waters of Faxaflói Bay. You set sail at 21:00 and head back just before midnight, giving you plenty of time to search for whales with one of our expert guides. The most common species we see on our tours are humpback whales, minke whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises.

  • Guided boat tour
  • Free ticket to try again in case of no sightings!
  • Warm floatable overalls provided for your comfort & safety – overalls also available in children’s sizes!
