The 7 best places to go whale watching
The best time to whale watch here is from April to September however tours do run throughout the winter months when you may catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
Expect to see minke and humpback whales as well as dolphins and porpoises. Secure a berth at the Old Harbour in Reykjavik, a popular departure point for local whale spotting tours, to combine the attractions of the city with whale watching. Trail blazers may also wish to head further north to the small fishing village of Husavik where smaller crowds mean a more personal experience.
