What we will do
  • In Akureyri, we board small rafts with a capacity of maximum 12 people and start a thrilling sea safari that will bring us face-to-face with the sea giants.
  • We sail along the Eyjafjordur, a deep narrow stretch of sea providing amazing views and surrounded by rocky slopes excavated by the glaciers and snowy peaks.
  • The fjord is home to a variety of sea life such as numerous species of whales, such as humpback and fin whales.
  • Our agile rafts are ideal for moving in the waters of the fjord as they enable us to cover a wider area while looking for whales, increasing our chance of seeing them.
  • With a bit of luck, we might spot the great mammals swimming nearby. The probability of spotting a whale in Akureyri 's waters are 95%, so keep your eyes peeled!
