Elding Whale Watching

Elding Whale Watching offers the most talked-about whale watching and sea adventure tours in Iceland. With decades of experience, we provide responsible whale watching tours, year-round.

We are proud to be the original whale watching operator in Reykjavík also operating from Akureyri north of Iceland. Elding is a family owned company that began with a personal interest in wildlife, boats and people. Whale watching tours were the perfect way to unite these interests while giving locals and tourists the chance to experience Iceland’s marine life.

We started in 2000, and over the years our products and services have developed a great deal; from small-scale seasonal tours to year-round products, and whale watching is now one of the top three tourist activities in Iceland.

In early 2016 we began operating out of the heart of Akureyri in North Iceland where we now have two types of vessels and thus experiences to choose from (one 200 passenger catamaran and two 12 seater RIB’s). Our first year we had 100% whale sightings and we continue to see multiple whales daily! The unbeatable closeness to nature and wildlife is unlike any other.

We believe in using our experience and enthusiasm to make the best tours available for our passengers. We truly put great care into the business, and whale watching has become a lifestyle for us. As our tours are authentic wildlife tours no two tours are the same.
