See Orcas in Iceland
The great phenomenon of orcas converging in our waters, chasing herring, has provided a wonderful opportunity to see these wild mammals in their own environment. Snaefellsnes is the only place in Iceland where orcas are regularly seen. We get as close as we can without disturbing the orcas while we enjoy the spectacle of them feeding, traveling or playing.
Whale Watching Grundarfjordur
As we look for the orcas, quite often we will come across a pod of dolphins or catch a glimpse of white-tailed eagles hovering overhead. Diving gannets, en masse, is also a common sight as well and can give us a hint of orca presence in the area.
