Private Arctic Coastline & Whale Watching

Explore the life of whales and human culture in and around the Eyjafjörður Fjord

The Private Arctic Coastline & Whale Watching tour is the perfect combination of watching wildlife in a natural setting and exploring the Icelandic culture along the way

The Private Arctic Coastline & Whale Watching tour gives you the perfect opportunity to experience the coast of Eyjafjörður Fjord and the life of whales up close. Together with your personal guide, you can make decisions along the way. The picturesque coastline route, with the mountains hovering above, is a road not used by many and offers the tranquility of rural Iceland. 

Tour Description

During this delightful day, we travel by the Eyjafjörður coastline to Siglufjörður Fjord, focusing on coastal life and the beautiful seaside surroundings on the way. We take our time to walk on a black sand beach in Ólafsfjörður Village. From there we travel to Siglufjörður Village, the shooting location for the popular Icelandic TV series “Trapped”, setting the right atmosphere for the thrilling series. In Siglufjörður we visit The Herring Era Museum and there we get to know the history of the town. Among other stops is the busy harbor area of Dalvík Village, one of the biggest ports in the Icelandic fishing industry, and the old herring factory in Hjalteyri Village.

During the tour, you will also go whale-watching from a small harbor in Hauganes. The boats used for whale-watching are old oak fishing boats which are both beautiful, spacious, and comfortable. The chances of seeing whales during the tours are high. During the summer of 2021, the success rate was 99% for all the tours.

Depending on the schedule of the whale-watching tours, the Private Arctic Coastline & Whale Watching tour will either start or end with whale-watching.
