What You Can Expect

Iceland Super Saver: Northern Lights Cruise plus Whale-Watching Tour from Reykjavik

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. Nothing can make an amazing more trip to Iceland more special than spotting a reclusive whale or a spectacular Northern Lights display, both of which you’ll have the chance to see on this combined trip.

For your first trip to see the Northern Lights, you’ll leave from your Reykjavik hotel at either 9pm or 10pm depending on the time of year. Then head to your boat which will take you out onto the water for a good chance of seeing this incredible natural light show, listening as your guide shares details about what causes the phenomenon and the legends that surround them. Sightings can’t be guaranteed, but with luck you’ll witness this amazing sight.
For your second trip you’ll again be picked up from your Reykjavik hotel, this time around 1pm, 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. Your chances of spotting an animal are strong, as the tour has an up to 90% success rate. 
For a full description of the itinerary of each trip, please refer to the details below.
Please note: You can choose to take the tours on the same day, or across separate days during your Iceland vacation.

Fantastic, the tour company was great to work with. I will definitely use them again.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

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.

We chose a cruise to search for northern lights and were rewarded. Unfortunately this looks much better on photographs then in reality. However, considering that other coach trips were cancelled on that night due to bad weather we were quite pleased.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this September 2015

Failed to pick us up from our hotel, despite us telephoning the tour operator and telling us they were running late but re-confirmed our booking. On the second telephone call we were told the cruise had already left and implied it was our fault. We would have seen the lights if they had collected us. Visiting the tour operator the following morning we rearranged, but were given another explanation implicating Viator. We were picked up on the second attempt but cloud cover meant no lights could be seen.
