Whale Watching | Grundarfjördur - West

Whale Watching | Grundarfjördur - West

Meet the fascinating killer whales, or orcas, as they come in large pods close to shore to chase the herring wintering in the fjord of Grundarfjörður. Watch the predators surfing a bit of swell and feeding in their natural environment, while being introduced to the recent monitoring system in Icelandic waters and beyond. Hear them blow in the immensity of the ocean, and look for other regular visitors such as Northern Gannet, White-beaked Dolphin, and Harbour Porpoise. Available December 10 to March.
