What to expect?

Helicopter tour with Norðurflug and an afternoon Whale Watching with Elding

Your day will start at the domestic airport, where you will meet up with the Heli pilot for a quick briefing. After the rundown, you will hop on board the Helicopter and get to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Reykjavík, mountain range, and surrounding areas in the 30-45 minute tour. Before heading back, the pilot will make a few minutes to stop on one of the mountains near Reykjavík, where you can enjoy the stunning panoramic view of the city!

Back at the domestic airport, you can choose either a transfer directly to the whale watching departure point (Please contact Elding directly for this service.) or back to the Natura Hotel and make your way down to the Old Harbour yourself. The Old Harbour is where the Whale Watching tours depart.
After collecting your tickets, you will visit the Whale Watching Centre (our floating museum) located in an old fishing vessel permanently placed by the pier.

There you can relax and sit down with a coffee or check out our whale exhibition located in the hull of the boat before boarding the Whale Watching boat.

Our expert tour guide will share more information about the surrounding landscape, whales, and dolphins that we are likely to see on tour.
After the trip, you will arrive back at the Old Harbour and can either get a lift to your hotel or continue to explore the city center. Just a 5-minute walk from the harbor area where you will find various shops and restaurants.
Duration: 4-6 hours
