Overview

Laki Tours takes you on an ocean adventure in four different trips. Puffins galore can be spotted from the protected Melrakkaey island where thousands of other birds also nest. Sea-angling is the perfect family outing and gets even more exciting when you get to keep your catch. From Olafsvik, the Whale tour gives excellent whale watching in deep waters at the foot of the majestic Snaefellsjokull Glacier. Winter brings the orcas, dolphins and white-tailed eagles. We take you to them on what is by now, our most popular tour. "We're living it!"

An incredible experience! The staff is really experienced and explains very well all along the tour. We saw the whale while being really close to them and without disturbing them on their journey. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!

Wonderful afternoon on the boat! We saw two humpback whales and were very lucky to spend some time watching both. Obviously with any tour like this if comes down to luck but the crew were very helpful and informative!

I rented a car. It is quite a long distance to take a cab or Uber. Trains they don’t have in Iceland and buses I don’t know.

At their web page you can find a whale diary where you can check how many times they saw whales around that time in the past years.
