WHALE WATCHING SNAEFELLSNES

Láki Tours, offers a unique whale watching tour from Snaefellsnes from December to October.

Between December and February, we operate our tours from Grundarfjordur. From March to October, our tours start from Olafsvik.

Best Place to see Orcas & Sperm Whales in Iceland

Nowhere else in Iceland is there a better chance to see two of the ocean’s top predators, sperm whales and orcas, than along the Snæfellsnes Peninsula coastline. The orcas are more often seen in winter and early in the summer, between April and June. Male sperm whales can be seen especially in June in deeper water.

Snaefellsnes is Famous for its Variety of Whale Species

We also regularly see minke whales, humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins, and harbour porpoises. On some occasions we have the privilege of watching pilot whales migrating past the peninsula in large aggregations. The landscape is magnificent around the glacier Snaefellsjökull, and even more so from sea.
