Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Witness some of the earth’s most sublime natural phenomena when you purchase this package of a whale watching tour and a Northern Lights excursion for one low price. Nothing can make an amazing more trip to Iceland more special than spotting a reclusive whale or a spectacular Northern Lights display, both of which you’ll have the chance to see on this combined trip.

For your first trip to see the Northern Lights, you’ll leave from Reykjavik's Old Harbour at either 9pm or 10pm depending on the time of year. Hotel pick-up begins 60 minutes prior to departure (if option selected).

Then head to your boat which will take you out onto the water for a good chance of seeing this incredible natural light show, listening as your guide shares details about what causes the phenomenon and the legends that surround them. Sightings can’t be guaranteed, but with luck you’ll witness this amazing sight.

For your second trip you will again be picked up from your Reykjavik hotel (if option selected) 60 minutes prior to departure, continuing to Reyjavik’s Old Harbor and then to Faxaflói Bay to begin your whale watching trip.

Keep your eyes peeled for the incredible range of creatures that call this bay home, including humpback and minke whales, harbor porpoises and white-beaked dolphins.Keep your camera ready to photograph these magnificent creatures

Theses were 2 different trips on the same day. The whale watching was great - we saw porpoise and dolphins and followed them around the bay. The Northern Lights was led by a guy who was very boring, had little information and we felt although we saw the Northern Lights - it was a poor experience

We didn't see any whales and all members of my party vomited. Felt like 3.5 hours of torture. They said we could go again but there was no way we were getting back on that boat! We had been warned of rough waters but the trip should have just been cancelled so that we could get a refund.

Really good tour especially as the tour guides were extremely informative. Even though we did not see any wildlife on our whale watching tour, I would still rate this trip 5 star due to the fact that it is not the company's fault that the whales did not come out to play but they have offered us an open expiration for another tour if we go back to Iceland. It was a nice day trip and evening trip especially as we were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights!

This tour company has a great reputation with the local community of Reykjavik "old harbor" and it shows in the quality and professionalism throughout the entire crew. Easy to find, great guide that is well educated and no matter where you wandered on all decks you could hear him perfectly. AWESOME

I booked a two part cruise that included whale watching during the day, getting dropped off at your hotel and Northern Lights tour later in the night. The whale watching was ok but the boat was very small for the amount of people onboard, not many places to stand without others surrounding you. Despite waiting in my hotel lobby, in the same way I did for the day tour, nobody came and collected me for the night Northern Lights tour.

Really good northern lights tour, lucky to see them sue to activish and clear skies. Good smooth sail on both. Unfortunately not able to see whales/dolphins - but company did offer another trip free of charge was our last day so couldn't capitalise. Very good tour guides/speakers. Entertainment was a bit novel on northern lights tour, and speaker system not so great on whale watching tour. Definitely worth the money though.

We chose a cruise to search for northern lights and were rewarded. Unfortunately this looks much better on photographs then in reality. However, considering that other coach trips were cancelled on that night due to bad weather we were quite pleased.
