- EXPERIENCE THE OCEAN LIKE NEVER BEFORE -
*whales * birds * seals * midnight sun* waves*
LÁKI TOURS is a thriving company in Grundarfjörður which specializes in whale watching and birdwatching tours. We offer first-class boat trips that allow all our passengers to enjoy what is on offer. Our aim is to bring our customers as close to the whales as possible, without impacting negatively on their magnificent environment. Our policy of responsible whale watching involves respecting the world of the whale by approaching them slowly and carefully, by not encroaching on their space and by making sure that we never outstay our welcome.
We also offer sea-angling tours from Grundarfjörður for those who wish to catch their own dinner.
We have two boats for our trips, Láki SH55 which is a traditional oak schooner, giving an elegant ride. This charming boat is excellent for whale watching and birdwatching with its slow rocking motion and open deck. It is a quiet boat that can get up close to the cliffs where the seabirds nest and has enough room for passengers to move around on, getting the optimum view of what they are watching. We use Láki for summer puffin tours as well as the winter orca watching tours so that we can approach slowly, silently without disturbing the orcas around the boat.
Brimrún is a fast, modern twin-engined passenger boat, built for comfort and speed. This boat is perfect for deep sea whale watching as it can get to the whales quickly. It is a powerful boat and has indoor seating so that passengers can relax between whale sightings. We use Brimrún for the summer whale watching tours from Ólafsvík and also in the winter if the whales are in Kolgrafafjörður.
Both boats can take up to 40 passengers and comply with Icelandic safety regulations.
