Whale Watching Holmavik
Come and join us for this new and very exciting venture. Our whale watching tour takes place in a remote, but beautiful and unspoiled part of Iceland. Here you can meet the most acrobatic species of whales. The fjord outside Hólmavík is known to host a lot of humpback whales in the summer. Humpbacks are the favourite species for many whale watchers around the world, as they are the most playful, acrobatic and curious of all whales. Other species we can expect to sometimes see are minke whales, pilot whales and white-beaked dolphins. Occasional visitors are blue whales, orcas and possibly even sperm whales.
Whale Watching in a Sheltered Fjord
The fjord is incredibly sheltered from most wind-directions, meaning we rarely have to cancel tours. Also sea-sickness is almost unheard of in this fjord. If you want to see whales but are concerned about being on the ocean, this is the trip for you. We are the only company operating here so you will almost always be on your own with the humpbacks with no other boats around.
ALL OUR BOAT TRIPS ARE SUBJECT TO WEATHER CONDITIONS.
