Reykjavik Whales & Helicopter Tour
Feel free to contact us
Combine two exciting tours in one! Take in a bird’s eye view of the city on a 30-45 minutes scenic helicopter-flight, and then explore the sea’s majestic creatures on a 3-5 hour whale watching tour.
You'll start your day by taking an unforgettable adventure in the sky. First, you make your way to the Reykjavik domestic airport where you'll meet up with your helicopter pilot for a quick briefing, and then we take you on the thrill of a life time: an exciting and scenic 30-45 minute helicopter round trip to a nearby mountain range, with breathtaking views of Reykjavik as we overfly the capital city. We will be making a landing on one of the table top mountains where you can enjoy the stunning panoramic view and get an absolutely unique photo opportunity.
After the helicopter tour, you make your way to Reykjavik Old Harbour area where you will meet up with your whale watching guide. There, you will board a boat that will take you out into the vast and open sea, while keeping an eye out for several sea creatures like Porpoises, white-beaked dolphins and, humpback, mink, and fin whales. If you’re lucky you might even catch a glimpse on the infamous orca's during your tour! The crew will point out the exact spots where you can expect to see some of these wild animals, and provide you with information about these different species.
