Our specially trained, highly qualified whale watching guides will take you on a 2,5 - 3,5 hour tour to Eyjafjordur  - the longest fjord in Iceland. They will provide you with information about wildlife, nature, environmental issues, history and the fjord area while taking pictures that you will be able to receive after the tour.

We operate our tours on 3 big boats - specially modified, dedicated for safe whale-watching encounters in Iceland. Our biggest boat is the only high-speed, specially modified, whale watching ship in Iceland. Capable of carrying 200 passengers with spectacular views from our “cinema styled” viewing platforms and its speed guarantees sustainable whale watching tours, wherever the animals might be located in the fjord. With ample indoor and outdoor seating, a bar, and a cafeteria, you can be sure that the ride is comfortable and pleasant, even on challenging weather days.

Meeting point: Elding Ticket Office by the floating pier next to the big round building "HOF Cultural Centre" in downtown Akureyri. You can't miss it!
