Whale watching tour from Bíldudalur
Watching the whales swimming and playing surrounded by the mountains around Arnarfjörður is pure joy
Several whale species visit Arnarfjörður, and have done so through the years. The humpback whale is the most common species we can see. Watching it swimming right next to the boat is quite the experience. Watch the video here on the page, it was taken on one of our trips early in the morning. Sometimes the humpback whale waits for the boat and takes a good look at us. The humpback whale and other whale species, like mink whale and the porpoise are usually not far away.
We usually stop by a seal colony, either on the way out or when we return home. We sail slowly by the rocks where the seals are bathing in the sun. They often roll into the ocean and swim towards the boat to take a closer look at us, they are no less curious than people.
