Humpbacks, minke whales, dolphins and porpoises are commonly spotted during these popular tours. To ensure that the animals are not disturbed by our presence, we sail at a constant speed towards the whales’ habitat. As a result, a variety of species, from humpback whales to tiny porpoises, often surface within a few feet of the boat.

Highlights

  • whales and dolphins in their natural surroundings
  • nature of Eyjafjörður, the longest fjord of Iceland
  • Sailing on a traditional oak boat
  • Fishing villages of Eyjafjörður
  • View of Hrísey Island

Surround yourself in history and visit the old village of Hjalteyri, which has a population of 43 inhabitants. Step aboard our traditional oak boat, Knörrinn, North Sailing‘s first whale watching boat, for a quiet sailing in the calm seas of Eyjafjörður, a favourable habitat of marine life.

This tour gives you the unique opportunity to get in touch with the great wildlife of the North, including whales and seabirds, all under the guidance and expertise of our most qualified crew.

The old herring meal and oil processing factory in Hjalteyri was the largest of its kind in Iceland. The factory shut down in 1966 and now hosts various activities.

Enjoy the scenic surroundings of Hjalteyri and experience the aura of old times. Hjalteyri is a well kept secret in the heart of North Iceland.

Hot chocolate and cinnamon buns included. Warm overalls and raincoats are available if needed.
