Hjalteyri: Whale-Watching Boat Trip

1. Hjalteyri: Whale-Watching Boat Trip

It's not surprising that many northerners believe that Hjalteyri is one of the best-kept secrets of North Iceland. Eyjafjörður is a favorable habitat for marine life, so favorable in fact that whales were spotted on all of these tours in 2016. On this whale-watching tour, you'll graciously glide through the calm seas of Eyjafjörður under the guidance and expertise of a qualified crew. This tour is approximately two-and-a-half hours long. This tour gives you the unique and exceptional opportunity to get in touch with the magnificent wildlife found in the north of Iceland, most notably the majestic whales and seabirds.

Incredible! We were lucky enough to see whales (humpbacks) every 3-5 minutes; they were amazing! The captain and crew were experts at spotting and then quickly getting as close as possible, at one point we were no more than 10 metres away from a whale diving. A member of staff spoke continuously through a speaker, alerting people to where the whales were and also giving a host of facts about the whales we were seeing. We were giving warm suits, a waterproof jacket and a hot chocolate & cinnabun. Overall, it was my wife and I's highlight of our Iceland honeymoon. Can't recommend enough!

We got to see 4 humpback whales and it was an amazing experience! The captain and the guide were very good and competent, we were provided with antifreeze suits and at the end of the tour we were given hot chocolate and a good cinnamon candy. Value for money in my opinion excellent! Highly recommended !!
