What you can expect

Combine two popular Icelandic activities with a full-day tour. Observe the diversity of wildlife in both the ocean and the air from your position on deck as your ocean guide tracks the whales. Back on dry land, absorb the striking scenery of the Golden Circle in a stunning national park.

Board the boat and head into Faxafló Bay as you seek out the humpback whale as well as species of dolphin and porpoise. Remember to keep your eyes on the skies as there’s a rich variety of bird life too: puffins, gannets and gulls all reside here.

Once back on shore, meet your coach for the afternoon tour of Iceland’s famous Golden Circle. Travel through the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park, the inspiring Gullfoss Waterfalls and the geothermal valley of Haukadalur with its impressive geyser sites. This is an ideal overview of Iceland’s natural beauty: seeing wildlife, spectacular geological sites and areas of historical importance.
