Whales in The Midnight Sun

About the Tour

This tour offers you a truly unique whale watching experience in the magical light of the midnight sun. With the added feature of a live Guitar/singer performing in the vessels lounge, the Midnight Sun tour is ideal as a relaxing end of a busy day or as a beginning of a fun night in town.


The tour commences at by the Ægisgarður pier in the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavik. A guide will meet you in the Whale Watching Centre, which is facilitated on board an old fishing vessel permanently placed by the pier. Before or after the tour you can enjoy the onboard multimedia show that includes images, videos and facts about the whales and marine life.

As our whales never fully sleep, we can expect to see minke whales, white beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises and humpback whales just as on the day tours. To make it even more memorable the captain often shuts down the engines to enjoy the soothing sound of the water and the wildlife.
