Whale watching from Hólmavík in the Westfjords!

Home / News / Whale watching from Hólmavík in the Westfjords!

We at Laki Tours are very excited to be starting a new whale watching in Hólmavík in the Westfjords.

Láki Tours has been running whale watching tours, as well as bird watching and sea angling trips from the Snaefellsnes Peninsula.

Now we want to offer guests who are visiting the Westfjords the  opportunity to enjoy tours with us in another beautiful and remote part of Iceland. We know that there are a lot of humpback whales around Hólmavík 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 see are Minke whales and white-beaked dolphins. Occasional visitors are blue whales, orcas, pilot whales and possibly even sperm whales. It is very exciting to start whale watching in a new area, to discover what is out there in this beautiful, remote part of Iceland, and you can be one of our first passengers!

Our main captain is a local to Hólmavík. He knows the area and the waters around and knows the best areas to look for whales. Our guide on the whale watch we are starting in Hólmavík is our most experienced guide, Judith Scott. She has worked on whale watches around the world, working with humpback whales in other areas, as well as many other species. We at Láki Tours are proud of our responsible whale watching, following Ice Whale guidelines. We are also working with whale research and conservation organizations. Come and join us for this new and very exciting venture, in a remote, but beautiful and unspoilt part of Iceland, with the most acrobatic species of whale!

Tours will start 15 June 2017!
