Reykjavik FlyOver Iceland Experience and Whale Watching

Get ready to see Iceland like never before! FlyOver Iceland will use state-of-the-art technology to reveal some of Iceland's most awe-inspiring and picturesque landscapes and destinations. Guests will hang suspended, feet dangling, while the ride virtually whisks them away on an exhilarating journey around Iceland. Special effects, including wind, mist and scents, combine with the ride's motion to create a unique and unforgettable experience.

In the afternoon, join in on an unforgettable whale watching adventure out at sea to see the world of whales and sea birds.

Iceland is frequently mentioned amongst the top 10 whale watching spots in the world and Reykjavik has become the whale watching capital of Northern Europe.

The ship, or the rib safari boat, depart from the downtown Reykjavik harbour, sailing around the bay to search for the area's underwater residents. These include minke whales, white-beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises and the popular humpback whales.

Sea birds in the area include puffins, gannets, guillemots, arctic terns and many more. The whale watching season begins in April and continues through August. Although trips are organized in wintertime, sightings of whales and seabirds are much rarer during that time.

Group Snaefellsnes Peninsula Tour

Snaefellsnes read more...

Snaefellsnes is an area of exceptional geological beauty - craters, lava fields (some more recent than others) idyllic, hidden coves and bizarre rock formations all lie in wait to be explored and discovered. Local legends and folk stories abound and are an essential element of this multifaceted tour. The day would not be complete without an Icelandic home-cooked meal along with some local interaction - so, naturally, this is also included, as are some light snacks and bottled Icelandic water. A fabulous tour that really hits the spot when it comes to observing volcanic phenomena, discovering Iceland's dramatic coastline and experiencing a more spiritual and mystical side of Iceland. ...read less

Exploring the South Coast

The south coast of Iceland is a magical area filled with adventure opportunities. Vast black lava beaches as far as the eye can see, majestic waterfalls, rugged rock formations and enchanting glacier tongues, all within an arm's reach. With the Atlantic Ocean to the south and a huge ice cap to the north, as well as two mighty glacier rivers to the east and west, the scenery is simply breathtaking and is one of Iceland's best road trips.

Your private tour means that the day will be fully tailored to your interests, and no two south coast tours are exactly alike. However, there are certain signature attractions you can expect to see. Perhaps the most well known is Reynisfjara beach, widely considered to be the most beautiful examples of Iceland's black sand beaches. As you walk along the jet black sand, you will immediately spot the Reynisdrangar rocky sea stacks which, according to legend, are trolls turned to solid stone at sunrise as they tried to drag ships from the ocean to the shore. You will also visit the charming coastal village of Vik i Myrdal, whose picturesque church enjoys glorious ocean views. Nearby is Dyrholaey; a 120m (400 ft)-high natural rock arch also serves as a bird sanctuary, and every summer, thousands of visitors and birdwatchers alike flock here to observe puffins in their natural habitat. You can also expect to see some of Iceland's most impressive waterfalls, including Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, where you'll find a winding staircase leading to the top of the falls, offering a birds' eye view of this natural marvel.

Everything went very smoothly on our private tour

Everything went very smoothly on our private tour, many thanks. We were able to see many different regions and aspects of Mexico making it a simply fascinating experience. We had a great time in Mexico City and Taxko (sadly Puebla was flooded and had to be taken out of the itinerary), and were able to take in the Aztek culture and Spanish colonial architecture. Then in the north, Copper Canyon (bigger than the Grand Canyon in the US) and the amazing train journey. The trip at the end to Baja California we managed to see the grey whales and the Yucatan and beautiful Maya ruins. The exposure to these very different areas in a short time made this a truly memorable journey.
