Reykjavik lies on the Southern shore of Faxa Bay in Southwestern Iceland, and is well-renown as the country’s capital and largest city. Although it is one of the smallest capital cities in the world, it houses six districts, each with their own personality. With its dynamic growing atmosphere, it does not come as much of a surprise that it is often the first city travelers visit when they arrive on the beautiful Nordic island. Highly regarded as one of the cleanest and safest cities in the world, Reykjavik is a welcoming community for those looking to discover all that Iceland has to offer. Known for its vast amount of festivals, the city offers an eclectic list of celebrations including the annual Ingólfshátíô Viking Festival and the lively Winter Lights festival. For those looking to feed their hunger for natural landscapes and outdoor adventure, Reykjavik offers the Heidmork Nature Reserve and Ellidaardalur Valley, both rich in walking paths and stunning scenery.

These boats boast a fantastic interior, large outside viewing deck, and a safe family environment. Friendly guides, plus the captain and crew, point out where to spot the whales and give interesting information about the different kinds of whales and seabirds you can expect to see.

These tours follow the IceWhale code of conduct to respect & protect the nature of Ireland and our oceans.


Overnight Location

Akureyri, Iceland

On The Map: Akureyri is a city at the base of Eyjafjörður Fjord in northern Iceland. It is reached via route 1 (the 'Ring Road') from Reykjahlíð (to the West) and from Varmahlíð (to the Southeast).

Nicknamed the heart of North Iceland, Akureyri is an important port and fishing centre. During the summer months, flowering gardens belie the location, just a stone’s throw away from the Arctic Circle. Lively winter festivals and some of Iceland’s best skiing provide plenty of off-peak (and off-piste) appeal. Refine your golfing skills with a round at Jadar Golf Course, the most northerly 18-hole course in the world or tap into your adventurous side with a dogsled tour in the winter. With its energetic attitude and extensive food and accommodation choices, Akureyri is the natural base for exploring Eyjafjörður and surrounding areas such as the Kjarnaskógur woods, where travelers can enjoy a variety of hiking trails and picnic areas.

Enroute Sightseeing

Namaskard, Iceland

On the map: Situated on the north side of Iceland’s Lake Myvatn, this geothermal wonder of hot sulfuric mud springs and steam springs is otherworldly. Black rivers and bubbling pools of sulfuric mud cut through a landscape that’s rich with colorful minerals and is continuously steaming. 

While picturesque,  one of Námaskarð’s most notable characteristics simply cannot be captured by photography – the smell. The eggy stench from the sulphuric mud and steam is pungent to say the least. There’s a reason why you won’t find vegetation in Námaskarð. Take one deep breath in and you’ll know right away!

Námaskarð is a magnificent example of how strange and “unearthly” our planet’s natural landscapes can be.


Enroute Sightseeing

Dettifoss Waterfall, Iceland

On the map: Dettifoss, a powerfull waterfall, is located in Vatnajökull National Park in northeastern Iceland and is reached via route 864 off of route 1 (the “ring road”) from Egilsstaðir (to the southeast) and from Reykjahlíð (to the southwest).

Known as ‘the Beast’ in comparison to ‘The Beauty’ of Goðafoss, Dettifoss is a powerful behemoth of a waterfall and is guaranteed to take your breath away. Loosely translated to “The Collapsing Waterfall”, Dettifoss is set within stark, rocky surroundings and features frightfully sheer drops on either side. Known as the most powerful waterfall in Europe, the waters of Dettifoss plummet 45 meters (147 feet) to the craggy shores below. To put this into perspective, this is about the height of The Statue of Liberty in New York City. As you might expect for a waterfall this large, Dettifoss carries gallons – 96,500 to be exact – of water across its bow every single second. Due to its sheer force, the mist from the falls is visible from several miles away, making this waterfall a must-see in northern Iceland.


Enroute Sightseeing

Dimmuborgir, Iceland

On The Map: Dimmuborgir is a large area of unusually-shaped lava fields located on the east side of Lake Mývatn in northern Iceland, about 101 km (62 miles) southeast of Akureyri.

Dimmuborgir (‘dark castles’ in English) is composed of various volcanic caves and rock formations. The formation of these extraordinary lava cliffs and pillars stem from molten lava flowing over a pond in the eruption of Lúdentaborgir and Þrengslaborgir some 2,300 years ago. The molten lava trapped the water underneath and steam issued through the vents in the lava and formed these pillars, which then remained standing even after the pond and the crust around them had disappeared. Not only is the area famous for its unique landforms, but since its appearance in HBO’s Game of Thrones, Dimmuborgir has only become more popular as a place to visit. In the show, Dimmuborgir was used as the location where Mance Rayder’s wildling army camp was built in season three. Filming in this area took place in temperatures as low as -11C (12 degrees Fahrenheit).


Enroute Sightseeing

Godafoss Waterfall, Iceland

On the map: Goðafoss is a stunning waterfall located on the river Skjálfandafljót, just off route 1 (the “ring road”) in northern Iceland. It is reached via route 1 from Akureyri (to the west) and from Reykjahlíð (to the southeast).

Goðafoss lies near the farm Fosshóll in northern Iceland, and falls from a height of 12 meters (39 feet) over a width of 30 meters (98 feet). Known to be one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland, the name Goðafoss can be roughly translated to “The Waterfall of the Gods” and it is not difficult to see why. It is an impressive site any time of the year, however in late spring, if you can catch it while there are still icicles adorning its sides, it’s a particularly otherworldly place to visit. Much like many of the waterfalls in Iceland, the amount of mist created by Goðafoss mixed with the sun offers visitors a chance to see a rainbow stretch across its width. The famous falls are nicknamed ‘The beauty’ in comparison to ‘The Beast’ of Dettifoss, which is a perfect way to describe this aquatic masterpiece. 


Overnight Location

Borgarfjordur Eystri, Iceland

On The Map: Borgarfjörður Eystri is a small village in east Iceland. It is reached via route 94, which branches off of route 1 (the “ring road”). It is roughly 70 km (43 miles) northeast of Egilsstaðir.

The Borgarfjörður region is well-known for its great natural beauty. The village has around 100 inhabitants, creating a close-knit community atmosphere. The area is famous for the hiking trails, ”Víknaslóðir”, which lead to deserted fjords and coves and to Loðmundarfjörður. The area has become a hiker’s paradise with local people marking numerous trails, comfortable hiking huts and a good hiking map. The hikes range in length from 1 hour to a full day, so there are plenty of opportunities to get outside and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Along with hiking, the area is known for its fish factory which travelers can visit for a worthwhile experience.

Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, Iceland

On the map: Jökulsárlón is a glacial lagoon, bordering Vatnajökull National Park in southeastern Iceland. Its still, blue waters are dotted with icebergs from the surrounding Breiðamerkurjökull Glacier, part of larger Vatnajökull Glacier.The lake has grown because melting of the glaciers and has increased fourfold since in the 1970s.The icebergs calve from the glacier edge and then move and fluctuates towards the river mouth along with the tide and the wind and get entrenched at the bottom. Its very beautiful and calming listening to the cracking sound of the icebergs when they move and float around. 

On the other side of the road there is also a beautiful black sand beach, often referred to as Crystal Beach or Diamond beach, where you can see ice-cubes and crystals that are washed up from the sea which, when illuminated at dawn, sunrise or sunset, reflect and refract a beautiful array of colors.


Enroute Sightseeing

Skaftafell National Park, Iceland

On the map: Skaftafell National Park is a wilderness area in southeast Iceland, originally established in 1967, and in 2008 became a part of the Vatnajokull National Park along with Jökulsárgljúfur National Park. This region is a lush oasis of gorgeous trails through forests, waterfalls, black sands, mountains and glaciers with Iceland’s highest peak, Hvannadalshnjukur, reaching 2,118 meters (6,950 ft).

Though it is situated between glaciers, Skaftafell is actually among the areas in Iceland that receive the least amount of snow. Precipitation usually comes with southerly wind directions that also bring a relatively warm air from the ocean. So most of the time, the precipitation is rain rather than snow. As a result, most of the hiking trails in the lowland areas of Skaftafell are clear of snow all year round.


Overnight Location

Vik, Iceland

On The Map: Vik is located in the Southern Region of Iceland. It is reached via route 1 (the 'Ring Road') from Reykjavik (to the Northwest) and Hof (to the Northeast).

The remote seaside village of Vik, located in Southern Iceland, offers a small-town experience complete with diverse wildlife and adventurous activities. As one of the three towns located within the Katla UNESCO Global Geopark, Vik serves as a hub for exploring the Myradalsjökull Glacier, which lies just to the North. Although it is famous for its proximity to the large glacier and underlying dormant volcano, Vik provides something of interest for every type of traveler. For those looking to observe wildlife, birdwatching and hiking in the surrounding areas offer a peek into the lives of native and visiting animals. During the summer months, travelers can enjoy the nesting puffins that inhabit Dyrhólaey, the small unique peninsula with a natural arch. Throughout the winter months, travelers have the opportunity to experience the infamous and breathtaking northern lights. No matter the season, Vik offers a variety of activities such as horseback riding on black-sand beaches, exploring the Myradalsjökull Glacier by snowmobile, or observing the natural wonder of the Reynisdrangar Cliffs.

Thingvellir National Park, Iceland

On the Map: Thingvellir (Þingvellir) National Park sits in the municipality of Bláskógabyggð in southwestern Iceland, and is reached via route 35 & 36 from Selfoss (to the South), and via route 36 from Reykjavik (to the southwest).

Thingvellir (Þingvellir) is a national park in the municipality of Bláskógabyggð in southwestern Iceland, about 40 km northeast of Reykjavík. As a site of historical, cultural, and geological significance, Thingvellir is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland. The park is known for the Alþingi (Althing), the site of Iceland’s parliament from the 10th to the 18th centuries and includes the Þingvellir Church and the ruins of old stone shelters. Recently, Thingvellir has even gained popularity among Game of Thrones fans due to its appearance on the fantasy epic. The park sits in a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and the boundary between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. The rift valley features the Silfra fissure, which is known as one of the top dive sites in the world for two main reasons: it is the only location in the world where someone can dive between two continental plates, and the underwater visibility is over 100 meters (328 feet), which creates a rare and unique underwater experience. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is sure to leave you feeling inspired and awestruck.


Enroute Sightseeing

Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach, Iceland

On the map: Reynisfjara is a world-famous black-sand beach found on the South Coast of Iceland, just beside the small fishing village of Vík í Mýrdal. 

Reynisfjara is found around 180 km from Iceland’s capital city, Reykjavik, and is a popular stop-off for travelers touring along Iceland's South Coast. Driving to the beach is particularly easy, taking an approximate two and a half hours from the capital.

With its enormous basalt stacks, roaring Atlantic waves and stunning panoramas, Reynisfjara is widely considered to be the most beautiful example of Iceland’s black sand beaches. In 1991, National Geographic voted Reynisfjara as one of the Top 10 non-tropical beaches to visit on the planet. Upon visiting the beach, travelers will immediately recognize the unique rocky sea stacks sitting just off the shoreline, known as Reynisdrangar. According to local Icelandic folklore, these large basalt columns were once trolls engaged in trying to pull ships from the ocean. However, as bad luck would have it, the dawn quickly arose, turning the trolls into solid stone.

Caution: Waves of Reynisfjara can be particularly violent, often pushing far further up the beach than many would expect. Visitors are advised to never turn their back on the waves, don't go chasing after them and keep a safe distance of 20-30 metres.


Enroute Sightseeing

Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, Iceland

On the map: Seljalandsfoss is a waterfall located in southern Iceland. It is reached via route 249 off of route 1 (the “ring road”) from Vik (to the southeast) and from Reykjavik (to the northwest). 

Seljalandsfoss is a stunning waterfall along Iceland’s southern coast, fed by melting water from the glacier-capped Eyjafjallajokull volcano. This powerful waterfall cascades into an idyllic meadow and is best known for the walking path that runs behind the veil of falling water and mist. During the winter months, the path behind the falls is closed due to weather and ice. As the falls are only located 120 km (75 miles) from Reykjavik, they make the perfect day trip for those staying in the city. 


Enroute Sightseeing

Gullfoss Waterfall, Iceland

On The Map: Gullfoss lies in the northeast corner of the Golden Circle in southwest Iceland. It is located right off route 35, about 109 km (68 miles) northeast of Reykjavik.

Gullfoss (“Golden Waterfall” in Icelandic), is a powerful waterfall located in the northeast corner of the Golden Circle Area. The waterfall is on the Hvítá River and is fed by Iceland’s second largest glacier, the Langjökull. The water plummets down 32 meters (104 feet) in two stages into a rugged canyon. In the winter, the view is spectacular when the water freezes over into waves of glistening ice. On a sunny day, visitors are treated to thousands of tiny rainbows, a natural reaction with the clouds of spray from the tumbling falls. With stunning views year round, Gullfoss is a highly recommended stop on any visit to Iceland.


Enroute Sightseeing

Geysir Hot Springs, Iceland

On the map: Geysir is a famous Geothermal area in Haukadalur valley in South Iceland

There are quite a few, varying in size, hot pools, and springs in the Geysir geothermal area. However, only two of them shoot high up into the air. The first spring, Great Geysir is the most spectacular. It can sprout boiling water up to 70 meters (230 ft.). It's also famous for the fact that it gave its name to all other geysers in the world. Its only fault is that it erupts only 4-5 times a day. So your chances to see it active are quite low.  The second and most active geyser in the area is called Strokkur. It sprouts hot water as high as 30 meters into the air every few minutes or so. 


Overnight Location

Your Hometown: Dayton

Amazing!! Every single detail was taken care of for us! Heather did a great job! It was so nice to not have to worry about logistics and we could just enjoy Ireland. I would highly recommend if you are renting a car to get an automatic. I drive a standard in the states, but it would have been way to much to think about and would have prevented me from enjoying the county side.

My husband and I went to Ireland for our honeymoon and it was AMAZING! Heather helped us and honestly, we had such a fun time. We didn't do a lot of the mentioned or planned items because we tend to just like to explore places but the set up to be able to do that if we wanted to or not was amazing!
