Whales & Horses

Ride with the wind in your hair!

Both on land and at sea you will get to visit Iceland´s most popular animals, the renowned Icelandic horse which you will get a chance to ride through the lava landscape and observe the beautiful nature that Iceland has to offer. Just couple of hours later you will be at sea breathing in the fresh air and watching some of the largest mammals on earth with the city skyline and mountains in the background!

Pickup from your hotel is between 08:45-09:15 by Íslenski Hesturinn (The Icelandic Horse) and they will drive you to meet with the lovely Icelandic horses and take you for a ride for 2.5 hours. After the tour you will be dropped off down at the Reykjavik Old Harbour for our whale watching tour on Andrea at 13:00 which will last for about 3-3.5 hours and you will be back again around 16:00-16:30. A full day of nature, fun & fresh air!

**You can also join our whale watching express tour at 14:00 if you want to have lunch and relax at the harbour first - please check for availability at info@specialtours.is
