What You Can Expect

Whale Watching and Blue Lagoon

Blue Lagoon

Depart from your Reykjavik hotel or Reykjavik port, and then travel by climate-controlled coach to your cruise departure point.

Step aboard the whale-watching boat and find yourself a spot on deck or in the indoor viewing area. As you set off across Faxaflói Bay, keep your eyes on the water. The bay is home to humpback whales, harbor porpoises, white-beaked dolphins and a unique variety of minke whales. Don’t forget to look up too: you might spot puffin, Arctic tern, gannets and other local bird life.

Following your cruise, return to your coach and travel to Blue Lagoon, Iceland’s world-famous geothermal spa. Unwind in the warm, milky-blue water and let your muscles unwind as you take in the surrounding ice fields and black lava rock. You can also opt to enjoy an outdoor massage or one of the spa treatments on offer (both at own expense).

Your tour then concludes with a drop-off at your hotel or Keflavík International Airport.

We had a beautiful day on the water. The views of downtown Reykjavic and the surrounding nature are spectacular. We saw humpbacks and mink whales. The staff was fun and the boat was large enough. If you love water, this isn't to be missed.

Since these are wild animals, it's hard to predict if one will see them. We were treated to a great view of the bay area and an intro to Icelandic marine life, however.

The Blue Lagoon is well-worth the trip.
