Husavik - Whale watching

This tour is a unique opportunity to enjoy magnificent wildlife and witness whales and birds in their natural habitat on board a traditional Icelandic boat. It is an amazing adventure at sea – watching the wonders of nature in the beautiful surroundings of Skjálfandi Bay, sheltered by the stunning mountains of Vík.
