What to expect

Your trip starts with a whale watching tour from Reykjavik, where you’ll get a chance to see whales and dolphins in their natural environment on just out from Reykjavik on Faxaflói bay. The birdlife of Faxaflói bay is rich and diverse all year round. Largest flocks are seen in late winter, when Capelin migrates to the area, drawing in thousands of birds and whales to gorge on this life-giving nourishment. After whale watching, you can visit the "Whales of Iceland Exhibition" which is the largest exhibition of its kind in Europe, featuring around twenty-five life-size specimens of whales that live in the waters around Iceland.

Following whale watching you'll head out on the Golden circle tour that covers Iceland's biggest natural attractions, including Þingvellir National Park, Gullfoss waterfall, and Geysir geothermal area.
