What to expect

Escape the crowds and head out to see the wildlife in Faxaflói bay in a luxury yacht. In this tour you will be cruising along the beautiful coastline of Reykjavík and admiring the view of the landscape from the sea, before heading out to the bay in search of whales and puffins.

The giants of the ocean that you will be looking for are Minke whales and Humpback whales. With a bit of luck you might even spot a group of white beaked dolphins or harbour porpoises. During the summer months you will also be able to see a lot of different seabirds and puffins as you sail close to a puffin island.

This deluxe tour offers a more personal service with fewer passengers. In addition, the new interior was refitted in 2019, giving you the chance to experience the wildlife at sea in a truly luxurious and unforgettable experience.
