Iceland airline launches whale watching city break

Iceland airline, Icelandair has launched its ‘Whale Watching City Break’ for UK visitors travelling until the end of October. The package deal includes return flights to Iceland from London Heathrow, Glasgow, or Manchester, three nights accommodation in Reykjavik, and a whale watching trip with tour provider, Elding.

The whale watching season in Iceland is soon to begin, providing visitors with the perfect opportunity to experience Minke Whales, Humpback Whales, White Beaked Dolphins and Harbour Porpoises in crystal clear waters.

The whale watching tour will be scheduled for the day after the arrival with Elding. 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.

In addition, during your stay in Iceland, you will have plenty of free time to plan other activities, such as exploring the Golden Circle, which visits several of Iceland’s natural highlights like the exciting Geysir area and the picturesque Gullfoss waterfall.
