    Elding Whale Watching – decades of experiece and year-round tours

    Elding Whale Watching offers the most talked-about whale watching and sea adventure tours in Iceland. With decades of experience, we provide responsible whale watching tours, year round. Our other tours include incentive and exclusive tours, and the ferry to Viðey Island.

    We also have seasonal tours. In summer we offer puffin watching and sea angling, and in winter our tours include Northern Lights Cruises and Imagine Peace Tours.

    Reykjavik's original whale watching operator

    We are proud to be the original whale watching operator in Reykjavík. Elding is a family owned company that began with a personal interest in wildlife, boats and people. Whale watching tours were the perfect way to unite these interests while giving locals and tourists the chance to experience Iceland’s marine life.

    We started in 2000, and over the years our products and services have developed a great deal; from small-scale seasonal tours to year-round products, and whale watching is now one of the top three tourist activities in Iceland.

    Experience and enthusiasm at Elding

    We believe in using our experience and enthusiasm to make the best tours available. We truly put great care into the business, and whale watching has become a lifestyle for us. As our tours are authentic wildlife tours and each one is unique.

    Responsible whale watching

    We follow IceWhale’s codes of conduct for responsible whale watching as well as following our own stricter guidelines. We take part in international cooperation on the future of whale watching, e.g. IWC and Planet Whale. To advance our knowledge we participate and support marine biologists reserach on wildlife in our area. Elding also is the first and only environmentally certified whale watching company in Iceland.
