See the Northern Lights and whales in Reykjavik with this Super Saver

Witness some of the earth’s most sublime natural phenomena when you purchase this package of a whale watching tour and a Northern Lights excursion for one low price.

Sightings can’t be guaranteed, but with luck you’ll witness this amazing sight.

For your second trip you will again be picked up from your Reykjavik hotel (if option selected) 60 minutes prior to departure, continuing to Reyjavik’s Old Harbor and then to Faxaflói Bay to begin your whale watching trip.
Keep your eyes peeled for the incredible range of creatures that call this bay home, including humpback and minke whales, harbor porpoises and white-beaked dolphins.Keep your camera ready to photograph these magnificent creatures

Whale watching Brilliant saw 5 minki whales unfortunatley didnt get to do the northern lights part of the tour as it was rough sea or cloudy all the time we were there.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2017

Really good tour especially as the tour guides were extremely informative. Even though we did not see any wildlife on our whale watching tour, I would still rate this trip 5 star due to the fact that it is not the company's fault that the whales did not come out to play but they have offered us an open expiration for another tour if we go back to Iceland. It was a nice day trip and evening trip especially as we were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights!

This tour company has a great reputation with the local community of Reykjavik and #34;old harbor and #34; and it shows in the quality and professionalism throughout the entire crew. Easy to find, great guide that is well educated and no matter where you wandered on all decks you could hear him perfectly. AWESOME

The day we went to view the Whales we only saw a few but received passes that do not expire in we go back to Iceland. The Northern lights were fabulous. Would highly recommend.

Really good northern lights tour, lucky to see them sue to activish and clear skies. Good smooth sail on both. Unfortunately not able to see whales/dolphins - but company did offer another trip free of charge was our last day so couldn't capitalise. Very good tour guides/speakers. Entertainment was a bit novel on northern lights tour, and speaker system not so great on whale watching tour. Definitely worth the money though.

The crew was great, informative and patient. I absolutely loved it!


3 star rating: Worth doing January 2018

Theses were 2 different trips on the same day. The whale watching was great - we saw porpoise and dolphins and followed them around the bay. The Northern Lights was led by a guy who was very boring, had little information and we felt although we saw the Northern Lights - it was a poor experience
