Excursions

 

Included in your package:

Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon is considered one of the New Wonders of the World. The geothermal water originates 2,000 metres below the surface, where freshwater and seawater combine at extreme temperatures. On its way to the surface, the water picks up silica and minerals and when it emerges the temperature is generally between 37°C and 40°C (98 - 104 °F). The blue colour comes from the silica and the way it reflects sunlight, as the water is actually white. The sun simply makes it look blue! Towel, face mask and a drink of choice from the Blue Lagoon Bar are included. *This excursion would cost €140pp approx if buying locally and we have included it in the tour.

 

Optional Excursions:

Golden Circle (7.5 HOURS)

Season: All Year

WHALE WATCHING REYKJAVIK (2,5-3,5 HOURS (3-5 HOURS IN WINTER))

Season: All Year

Summer season (1 April - 31 October) is great for whale watching, as the wildlife in the bay is at its highest peak! This is the time when the Minke whales are at their most abundant, along with White-beaked dolphins, Harbour porpoises and the occasional Humpback whales, giving us the chance to enjoy and understand them in their natural environment. Winter season (1 November - 31 March) is a whole other experience and adventure compared to our summer tours. Each year continues to surprise us with the wildlife it offers. The winter low lying sun is also something not to be missed, as it casts a warm glow over the white-capped mountains surrounding the bay and to breathe in the winter's fresh and crisp air is just incredible. Our sighting success on previous tours is 91.40% however the cetacean abundance is unpredictable and varies with the food availability of our shores. The most common cetacean in the area are the Minke whales, White-beaked Dolphins and Harbour Porpoises and occasionally we see other species including the Humpback whales, Killer whales/Orcas and even Fin whales.whales/Orcas and even Fin whales.

Adults €119 Kids 7-15yrs €59 Kids 0-6yrs free.

NORTHERN LIGHTS CRUISE (1,5 – 2,5 HOURS)

Season: 01 September – 15 April

On the tour we will take you out into the dark blue yonder of Faxaflói bay in search for the mystical phenomenon we call the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights, leaving behind the bright city lights of the capital Reykjavík. Watching the lights constantly change in intensity, colour and movement in the vast starry space with the gentle lull of the ocean beneath is a thrilling, unique experience. Northern lights are best displayed under dark, clear skies. Our open top viewing decks provide the perfect platform for witnessing the dazzling spectacle while our heated indoor lounge is a great place to take a break and warm up in between sightings.

Adults: €119 Kids 7-15yrs €59 Kids 0-6yrs free.
