Whale Watching & Golden Circle

After picking you up from one of the meeting points in Reykjavík, we'll head off to the Port of Reykjavík. From here we'll set off on a boat trip around the Faxaflói bay at 9 am. 

For the first three hours we'll enjoy whale watching on the Atlantic Ocean, and you'll be left speechless by these magnificent, enormous creatures. What's more, depending on the time of the year and the currents, we'll also be able to spot some dolphins and killer whales.

When we return to the port of Reykjavik, we'll visit the Whales of Iceland Exhibition, where we'll see 23 life-size whale models. Afterwards, we'll take a 30-minute break so you can get something to eat. We recommend bringing a picnic.

After lunch, we'll set off on a bus tour of the famous Golden Circle. In less than an hour, we'll arrive at Thingvellir National Park where Thingvallavatn, Iceland's largest natural lake. 

We'll now head to one of the most exciting parts of the tour: the Gullfoss waterfall, which will take your breath away.

Our next and final stop will be Geysir, known for its geothermal activity. We'll see Strokkur, one of the most famous geysers in Iceland, and marvel at its 15 metre high eruptions.

The trip will end at 7 pm when we head back to Reykjavik and drop you off where we picked you up from in the morning. 

Meeting points

When you book you'll see a list of most of the hotels in Reykjavík. Next to the name of your hotel you'll see the nearest meeting point. As many of the streets in the centre are not accessible by bus, you'll have to head to a nearby location, which will be indicated as 'Bus stop' and a number. This is where you'll be picked up from.
