Witness the wonders of Icelandic wildlife

Iceland sits in a unique position in the far north of Planet Earth. At the heart of the North Atlantic Ocean, our island holds some of the richest sealife you can see anywhere. Come and witness the sheer variety of these waters on an Iceland wildlife tour.

Whales are the stars of the show. There’s no doubt that Iceland is one of the best places to see these magnificent creatures anywhere in the world. As many as 23 different species of whale make Iceland’s coasts their home throughout the year, coming here to feed on the immense stocks of fish.

On an Icelandic wildlife tour, you’ll have the chance to see humpbacks, minke whales, orca, and sperm whales. If you’re very lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the mighty blue whale, or even the mysterious white beluga whales that come down to Iceland from the Arctic.

Of course, what you can see might change from day to day or throughout the season. That said, a resident colony of orca lives close to Reykjavík year-round, while humpbacks are frequently seen in the Eyjafjörður, next to Akureyri.

Then, of course, there are the dolphins and seals too. Seals can be seen year-round on the coasts of Iceland, hauled up on the beaches in huge numbers. Look to the waters for dolphins and porpoises. They’re a common fixture in Faxaflói Bay, for example, the area of sea between Reykjanes and Snæfellnes.

Wildlife tours in Iceland are the most reliable way to see all these creatures. At Icelandia, our guides can take you to the areas where they’re most commonly found. You’ll have the chance to get up close and witness their magic for yourself.
