Imagine a full size whale right next to you? Well you have 23 man-made life size models at the Whales of Iceland Exhibition in the harbour area. The exhibition is full of sounds, visual treats and interactive technology – a must do when in Reykjavik!

Tour description

In the Whales of Iceland Exhibition 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 love whales and would like to take one home, you can of course get a sneaky souvenir on the way out.

A live guided tour of Whales of Iceland is offered daily at 13:30 for all ticket holders at no extra cost.
