Icelandair is offering UK travellers whale watching holidays in Iceland as the whale watching season is soon to begin. The Iceland airline has recently launched its ‘Whale Watching City Break’, including flights to Iceland from Glasgow, Manchester, or London Heathrow, three nights accommodation in Reykjavik, and a whale watching tour with Elding.
The whale watching tour with Elding will be scheduled for the day after the arrival. During the trip, visitors will set sail from the old harbour in Reykjavik to Faxafloi Bay, a beautiful body of water with great views of Mount Esja on a clear day. Each tour is different, with sightings almost guaranteed, especially with the most common whales, Minke and Humpback; expect to see Puffins and Guillemots too. Read more
