Whale Watching & The Golden Circle

Make the most of your day. This full day sightseeing tour gives you all the highlights. First we go whale watching from Reykjavik, and then we do the famous Golden Circle in a minibus. We will visit Thingvellir national park, Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir geothermal area and and many other places.

*Important note regarding pickup:

This tour is a combination of two tours. Pickup for the whale watching tour is from 08:15 – 08:45 at your hotel. Please be ready outside the lobby of your hotel during pickup.

After the whale watching tour you can walk around downtown and buy something to eat.
You have around 60 minutes until you are picked up for the Golden Circle tour. You will be picked up for the Golden Circle tour between 13:00 – 13:30 at the harbour next to the whale watching site. We will also stop at a location where you can buy food on the Golden Circle, since this is a long tour.

You will see more detailed instructions on your voucher.

Description

Whales are beautiful animals and one of nature’s most extraordinary sights. This cruise will take about 3 hours. The abundant marine life and the crew’s expertise has ensured we have sightings on over 90% of our tours.

Our whale watching tours are focused mainly on the southern part of Faxaflói, just off Reykjavík. Each day we scan the area for signs of whales as we never know for sure where we might find them. Sometimes we have to go far while at other times the whales are quite close to shore.In rare occasions we head to other areas and/or depart from nearby harbours e.g. Hafnarfjörður, Keflavík, Sandgerðir or Grindavík. This is the case when weather conditions or chances of seeing the whales are greater there than in our normal area.

The Golden Circle in a minibus

This classic tour will take you to three of Iceland’s most popular attractions: Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir geothermal area and the National Park Thingvellir. Along the way we will make stops at other interesting places, Geothermal Exhibition at Hellisheidi Power Plant, Faxi waterfall and crater Kerid, for instance. We will visit many exciting places but they are all close by so don’t worry, we will have enough time to enjoy everything!

At Extreme Iceland we prefer to operate tours by minibus in smaller groups. This gives us the opportunity to deliver the personal service we feel you deserve.
