Láki Tours offers responsible whale watching tours from Ólafsvík and puffin tours from Grundarfjörður in Snæfellsnes. We also offer whale watching tours from Hólmavík in the Westfjords. 

Whale Watching from Ólafsvík

West Iceland is a paradise for whale enthusiasts and famous for its unique whale species. Snæfellsnes is the only area in Iceland where orcas are seen regularly. Another unique species around Snæfellsnes are sperm whales. Sperm whales are the largest toothed whales in the world and one of the deepest diving whales. Other species we reguluarly see on our whale trips are humpback whales, minke whales, pilot whales, and white-beaked dolphins. Our whale watching tours from Ólafsvík run between February and September and last between 2 to 3.5 hours. Seeing the magnificent landscape around the glacier and the famous mount Kirkjufell from sea is an additional highlight.

Season: February - September

Address: Norðurtangi 9, 355 Ólafsvík. 

Puffin tours from Grundarfjörður

A nature reserve on the nearby island Melrakkaey attracts hundreds of puffins and other seabirds. From Grundarfjörður, our 1,5 hour puffin tour on a traditional oak boat offers a great opportunity to see these amazing birds in their nesting environment. It is wonderful to see puffins lined up along the edge of the cliffs like sentries on watch while the other birds wade and warble through the waves around the island with its basalt columns. A slow cruise around the island gives photographers a golden opportunity to capture the variety of birds on the island through their lenses. This amazing trip is not just about birds - the setting for the trip with Mt. Kirkjufell dominating the scenery also lends enchantment to the view.  

Season: June - August

Address: Nesvegur 1-3, 350 Grundarfjörður
