A visit to Iceland provides a magnificent opportunity to witness whales and dolphins out in the wild. During one of our visits, we experienced a whale watching tour with Elding in Reykjavik. Elding has been giving tours from Reykjavik since 2000. My first word of advice for your whale watching tour is to bundle up because it is quite cold in the North Atlantic!

|Puffins flying all around!|

Things to know:
- The boat does have a light cafe with treats and warm beverages.
- Binoculars may be useful.
- There is a restroom on board.
- The tour is three hours. If you have a late flight, you may be to take a whale tour in the morning before heading to the airport. The airport is about 45 minutes from Reykjavik and figure arriving at least 2 hours before your flight. We usually plan on 3 just in case.
