Laxnes & Whale watching

Mosfellsdalur, Iceland

Mosfellsdalur, Iceland

Your whale watching adventure begins at Reykjavik´s Old Harbour, just minutes away from the city center!  

The boats operated by Special Tours offer great comfort, a fantastic interior, large outside viewing decks, and a safe family environment. 

The friendly guides, along with the captain and crew, point out where to spot the whales and give interesting information about the different kinds of whales and seabirds you can expect to see.

After the whale watching you´ll have some time for a quick lunch before we pick you up at the Special Tours dock at 13:00 for our afternoon Laxnes special.  After the riding tour, we´ll take you back to your residence.
