Árskógssandur: Whale-Watching Boat Trip

1. Árskógssandur: Whale-Watching Boat Trip

The picturesque village of Árskógssandur is located on the western shore of Eyjafjörður, Iceland, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and the tranquil waters of the fjord. Eyjafjörður is a favorable habitat for marine life, so favorable in fact that whales were spotted on all of these tours in 2016. On this whale-watching tour, you'll graciously glide through the calm seas of Eyjafjörður under the guidance and expertise of a qualified crew. This tour is approximately two-and-a-half hours long. This tour gives you the unique and exceptional opportunity to get in touch with the magnificent wildlife found in the north of Iceland, most notably the majestic whales and seabirds. The check in point is located in the reception of Hotel Kaldi.

What people are saying about Árskógssandur

Sailed into the fjord towards Akureyri in beautiful weather. Equipped with warm overalls, it was not cold despite the low temperature. Spent some time watching a few humpback whales. On the way back we had a delicious hot chocolate with a cinnamon roll. A wonderful afternoon on the water.

Although it wasn't the season for whale watching, thanks to the captain's experience we saw a humpback whale. The guide was very accommodating and open to informative discussions. Would do it again!

Small-scale, friendly people with a lot of knowledge, dedication and respect for the animals.

Many thanks to the crew. They were very patient and made my dream come true. Gladly again

A top team who does everything possible to allow us to see the whales. 🐳 Thank you 🙏🏼
