Akureyri – the Capital of North Iceland

Akureyri is the biggest town in North Iceland. With this tour, you can drink in the surrounding, snow-capped mountains, and chat with the whale watching guides to learn about the humpbacks that visit the area.

Learn about the lifecycles of the humpbacks as your ship uses its speed to reach far and deep parts of the fjord, leaving no likely viewing area unexplored. Scan the seas for whales, and with luck, enjoy some sightings of the mammals as they swim and breach in the waters.

Here is your chance to see the wildlife in waters, namely, the incredible Eyjafjord Humpbacks in their natural habitat

Good to know before visiting:
  • Make sure to arrive at the ticket office in the harbour at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time

  • Flat bottom shoes are recommended
  • Wheelchair accessible
