The scenery on this tour is a real feast for the eyes. Your trip begins in Dalvík, which is on the picturesque ford of Eyjafjörður, surrounded by some of the steepest mountains in Iceland. The name Eyjafjörður means island fjord and the tiny island of Hrísey is within Eyjafjörður. From the water, you will see some really special and unique views of the fjord. This tour makes it possible for you to see much more scenery than you would ever have thought possible in just two hours.

As soon as we leave the harbor at Dalvík we head at speed in the direction where we are most likely to find those whales, so our direction will vary from day to day. Our search could take us towards Akureyri, closer to Hrísey, or almost to the island of Grímsey on the Arctic Circle. We always take the option which local wisdom indicates will be best. Whichever direction we take the scenery will be spectacular. The speed of the Rib boat really does give us the most tremendous advantages when it comes to finding those whales! It is our ability to get to those more distant places which give us our 99% success rate!
