Iceland Whale Watching in March
March is one of our most busy months in winter. At this time of the year, chances are very good to see orcas in Snaefellsnes. Many travelers use this opportunity and add a whale watching tour from Grundarfjordur to their itinerary. On March 10, 2019 we were lucky to see far ahead of the boat. In the beautiful sunshine, we spotted a male orca on our morning trip and several groups of orcas in the afternoon. Iceland Whale Watching in March could not be more spectacular!
On top of these impressive killer whale encounters we also spotted sperm whales today. The sperm whale is the largest of the toothed whales and is rarely seen on whale watching tours around Iceland. The best time for seeing sperm whales in Snaefellsnes seems to be late spring and early summer. But of course nobody complained today about this nice encounter.
Coming to Iceland in March for Orcas
If you are coming to Iceland mainly for orcas, we highly recommend spending at least one night on the Snaefellsnes peninsula and booking your whale watching tour on your first day in the area. If the weather does not cooperate and we have to cancel a tour, you would be able to reschedule the tour to the next day. Do you know that Láki Tours has a cozy guesthouse in Grundarfjordur? You can check on our website if we still have availability for your travel dates. It is located right next to the harbor and you can reach the famous Mt Kirkjufell in less than 5 minutes by car. This mountain is the perfect background when the magic Northern Lights appear in the winter sky.
