Whale Watching Ólafsvík

Operated by our partner - Láki Tours

In General

Láki Tours offers this unique tour to the waters where ocean giants swim in the shadow of the magnificent Snæfellsjökull Glacier, searching around the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Nowhere else in Iceland is there a better change to see toothed-whales such as orcas, sperm whales and pilot whales than along this beautiful coastline.  The orcas are more often seen in winter and early in the summer, during April and June, but there is a chance of seeing them all the way through the summer months. Male sperm whales can be seen especially in June in deeper water. Other whales that can be seen are humpback whales and minke whales as well as white-beaked dolphins. Láki Tours go as close as they can without disturbing the whales while you enjoy the spectacle of them feeding and playing.
