Elding whale watching

Elding has been offering whale watching tours from Reykajvik for over two decades. They are complete experts at spotting whales and telling you about their behavior and habitat. The most common whale species you can expect to encounter in Iceland are minke whales, humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbor porpoises. Occasionally you will see other species for example killer whales and fin whales, though they are not as common. In summer the whales are most abundant, giving you a great chance to see them in their natural environment. Still there are plenty of whales around Iceland in the wintertime as well.

Elding offers whale watching tours year-round in Akureyri and Reykjavík, and during "puffin season" from May 1sst until August 15th they offer puffin tours as well out of Reykjavík. 

The whale watching boats offer a heated indoor lounge with big windows and an outdoor area. If you are feeling chilly on the day, you can borrow warm overalls and blankets for your trip. And for the puffin tours they offer raincoats and binoculars (so you are sure to see the pretty puffin).
