The activity was canceled due to bad weather, they sent us an email with a second option or to cancel the activity. They were super nice especially for giving us the second option. The tour is very beautiful and immersed in the fjords. As we were about to return they gave us hot chocolate and cinnamon rolls. 10/10

Unfortunately we didn't see any whales, but it was still a great tour with lots of great facts about Iceland and around the island. On the way back we had cocoa and a cinnamon roll. We can now redeem our ticket again up to 10 years later because we didn't see any whales. Totally great

The views were amazing! The trip in itself was fun! The guide…the best!! Thorfur with IceAk…I can’t say enough. He was personable, funny, knowledgeable, and a complete joy!!

Glad we downloaded this app on our drive to south coast and Jokulrason glacier. It included several spots as well as information animals and the landscapes.

Very professional, they have taken care of us at all times, we have seen many whales, they know the sea and its inhabitants very well; to repeat.
