What to expect?

Seal Watching

  • Seal watching is a new experience in Icelandic tourism. This boat trip departs from Hvammstangi. Sail around Miðfjörður and Húnaflói during the summer, and enjoy the opportunity to watch seals in their natural habitat. Seals are marine mammals that live in the northern hemisphere. They keep close to the shores, so they can crawl up on big rocks or beaches to rest. Even though seals are wild animals, it does not take them long to get used to the closeness of humans. Seals are curious by nature, so with a good camera and a telephoto lens, you can expect to take marvelous photos. This is an experience to be remembered.

Whale Watching

  • Here is your chance to see the incredible Eyjafjord humpbacks in their natural habitat. The warmth of the summer sun brings vibrant life and a plenitude of food to the fjord and following it, in a feeding frenzy, come the larger-than-life humpbacks. Our specially trained whale watching guides are experts at spotting them and telling you all about their behavior. If you'll have any questions, we promise you an answer. Our ship is the only high speed, specially modified, whale watching ship in Iceland. Capable of carrying 200 persons with spectacular views from our cinema-style viewing platforms. Its speed guarantees availability of whale watching tours from Akureyri, wherever the whales might be located in the deepest fjord in Iceland. With ample indoor and outdoor seating, bar and cafeteria, you can be sure that the ride is comfortable and pleasant even at speed.
