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!"

We went on the newly started tour from Holmavik run by Laki tours (rather than olafsvik or grundafjordor). Our Guide Judith was the most passionate whale watcher we could have imagined. She told us loads about whales from all over the world and shared her...More

We lucked out! Not a cloud in the sky, calm waters, light breeze. That combined with a boat trip to watch puffins fly and float about makes a pretty perfect day in Iceland. Before the tour we shared a pizza at the cafe and had...More

This was a great whale watching trip. When you decide to go on these trips, it's always a gamble, since you don't know if you'll be able to see whales or not—as the tour guides remind us, the whales can do what they want! We...More

Our tour was cancelled one hour before departure because we were the only ones booked. They rescheduled us the following day, when we comfortably boarded with four other couples/families. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable; the salty captain never said a word. Wearing four layers,...More

Hi Lynn. It took my company (with a rental car) around 3-5 hours to drive from Reykjavik, but we stopped several times. The car we used was rented at Keflavik airport and now I'm not entirely sure for what price. You should... More
