Overview

Discover Killer Whales, dolphins and more on this epic whale watching tour departing from Grundarfjordur Harbour in Iceland’s Snæfellsnes Peninsula. This tour is a fantastic opportunity for any guest to Iceland to experience this island’s wildlife over the Christmas period.

There is no place better in Iceland to see Orcas than the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, a stunning and dramatic region of West Iceland famed for its mighty stratovolcano.

In the coastal waters that surround it, Killer Whales are the apex predator. Ideally suited to their marine environment, it is nothing short of breathtaking seeing them with your own eyes.

Before boarding, you will adorn a thick set of outdoor overalls. Such clothing will keep you warm throughout your trip, allowing you to spot whales from the deck in both comfort and style.

Orcas in Iceland usually travel in small pods, so chances are you’ll see more than one if they make an appearance. Nothing comes close to describing such a sight, seen from aboard a specialised vessel. Make sure to keep your camera handy to capture these animals as they breach the water’s surface!

Of course, many other whale and dolphin species call this scenic fjord their home, from the more commonly sighted Minkes and Humpbacks Whales to more scarce sightings like that of the enormous Blue Whale.

On top of that, you’ll witness the coastlines of Snæfellsnes; its epic cliffs, lava fields and mountains, all covered with snow, as well as seabirds, soaring high over the Atlantic waves. Who knows what else you’ll discover upon setting out on the high seas of West Iceland?

Don’t delay any longer! Ensure your place aboard this fun whale watching trip off Iceland’s Snæfellsnes Peninsula, and you too can spot Killer Whales in the wild heart of winter!
