Whales love Iceland, the reason is the abundant food they find here. Whales tend to spend their winters in warm waters, for mating and breeding. And after a long migration, they spend the summer season in colder waters, like those of Iceland, where the food is very abundant due to the combination of cold and warm sea currents that we have on the shores of Iceland.

That is why the coast of Iceland is a great place for whale watching, a place where people can get up close to these massive mammals in their natural habitat. There are 23 species of whales off the coast of Iceland, some are there for a short time each year while others stay there longer.

Whale watching is an experience that everyone should try if they intend to visit Iceland and learn about their way of living in the wild. Check to our whale watching tours:
