Whale Watching from Hjalteyri | North
On your whale watching tour, get away from the crowds by departing from Hjalteyri, a well-kept secret only 15 minutes from Akureyri, once home to a large herring meal and oil processing factory. Start spotting the humpback whales’ blow in the distance before stepping aboard a traditional oak boat to approach them quietly. Let the giants of the sea surprise you as they feed, dive, sometimes breach and whirl around. A magical experience in one of the most beautiful fjords in North Iceland. Available from 1 May to 30 September.
