Take a chance to know history of Iceland and join whale watching tour, with this Combo!

Funky Iceland will take you for a walk in Reykjavik. If you are interested in learning about the history of Iceland in an enjoyable way, this is your tour! Dress waterproof and warm clothes and put good walking outdoor shoes. The talented guide will take you around the most important locations in the city and will tell you the history of Iceland in last century from Viking settlers until now, making remarkable moments and awaking your interest meanwhile you listen those stories. 

We are sure you will remember a lot of facts and stories about Iceland if you take part of this tour. 

The second part is one of the highlights of Iceland, we will take you to whale watching. Departing from the Old Harbour, we will sail out to the feeding grounds in Faxaflói bay looking for Humpback whales, Minke whales, White-beaked dolphins or Harbour porpoises, but of course, the ocean is always full of surprises and we can have visits from other marine species and birds, as puffins during summer season and others worthy for bird watching.

Please be aware that due to environmental reasons during certain times of the year our trips may be delivered on a shared boat with one of our partners. At Reykjavik Sailors we are committed to ensuring the environment is kept pristine by making sure fewer boats are on the water.

If any tour (part of combo) is cancelled on our behalf but purchased ticket was used for one of the tour, full price for the following admission will be charged and the portion of the tour that was cancelled will be refunded.

If you don’t see a whale, you have the option to take the tour again for free.
