What people are saying about Northeastern Region, Iceland

Excellent experience! We were very spoiled. We had booked 10 to 15 days before our visit for the 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. slot in an eco-responsible electric boat. What a pleasure to leave the port without the smell of fuel oil and without disturbing the whales thanks to the electric motor. The weather was cloudy but with very good visibility and above all a calm sea. We were well covered thanks to the lent fleece suits but the temperatures were mild. Very good guide knowing perfectly the life of marine animals and birds. We saw about ten whales, 2 or 3 of which were very close, as well as a few dolphins and puffins. Snack on the way back. The success of this walk is linked to the weather conditions. When stopping for whale watching in rough seas, the boat may pitch, so it is best to have sea legs. Finally, whale watching is random and depends on nature. Highly recommended outing.

A great experience with a responsible crew! We were lucky enough to see several whales and dolphins. We particularly liked the fact that we could be close to the animals and they weren't harassed like we've seen on other boats.

Bring plastic bag because they do not have appliance for drying wet swimsuits. Only one house hair dryer in changing room for 50 womens. Everything else is better then Blue lagoon.

Good organization, we found the whales very quickly and kept our distance so that the animals were left alone, but we were still able to take great photos. Gladly again!

A must do activity! It was a bit crowded when we were there, but relaxing all the same. Such a beautiful location and very clean.
