What you'll experience.

The Whale Watching Ólafsvík tour in the sense that nowhere else in Iceland is there a better chance to see the biggest whales of the ocean. Setting sail from the Snæfellsnes Peninsula coastline offers a chance to see Orcas, Sperm, Humpback, Minke and Pilot whales plus dolphins and porpoises.

The landscape is magnificent around the Glacier and even more so from sea. The Snæfellsjökull Glacier rises majestically into view from wherever you are on the ocean, competing with the wonderful sight of breaching whales. Svörtuloft, Öndverðarnes, Keflavík and Skarðsvík are the areas of the National Park coastline you will sail around in search of these magnificent mammals.
