Whale Watching & Whales of Iceland Exhibition

Would you like to experience the whales all the way? 

Go out on sea and see the life version and then to the exhibition and see how big these cetaceans actually are! 

When out on the bay looking at the whales in the sea you might not fully understand how amazingly big these animals are.

Therefore after joining a whale watching tour in the morning we recommend stopping by at the Whales of Iceland exhibition on the other side of the harbour and get the feeling of how small we humans are compared to the ocean wildlife.

On the Whale Watching tour we sail out to Faxaflói bay where we search for the common whales in the area, such as Humpback whales, Minke Whales, White Beaked Dolphins and Harbour Porpoises. We get a feeling of their behavior in the wild.

At the largest whale exhibition in Europe all 23 species that can be found in the surroundings of Iceland in real size are shown and you learn lot of interesting facts about the whales and their history.
