Combine an Icelandic horseback riding tour and high-speed whale watching cruise on a day trip from Reykjavik. Suitable for all abilities, the experience starts with a 2.5-hour ride through moors and lava fields by sturdy Icelandic horse. Enjoy free time for lunch at Reykjavik Old Harbor, and then board an express boat to speed across Faxaflói Bay to the whale watching sites in super-fast time. Look for whales, dolphins and porpoises and more!
Start with a pickup from your Reykjavik hotel, and travel to the stables, just outside the city. On the road, learn about Iceland’s native horses, a breed that descends from horses brought to the country in the 10th century. The small horses are known for being easy to ride due to their tölt, a four-beat gait that makes for a smooth ride across the rugged terrain.
With your helmet on, listen to a safety briefing, and then follow your experienced guide out of the stables. Stop to take photos of the lava-covered landscape, and make your way along trails that wind through remote moorland and fields.
After around 2.5 hours, return to the stables and transfer to Reykjavik Old Harbor. Enjoy free time for lunch (own expense), and then board your high-speed boat. Custom-made for whale watching, the hi-tech boat is one of the fastest whale watching vessels in Iceland.
Put on your coveralls and settle on deck or in the indoor cabin. Then, enjoy the views and listen to commentary as you speed into Faxaflói Bay. Look for whales, porpoises and white-beaked dolphins and keep your camera ready — the trips have a 90% success rate for sightings. In the unlikely event you don’t spot any whales or dolphins, receive a complimentary ticket for another trip.
Refuel with refreshments from the onboard cafe, if you wish, and then return to the harbor. Finish with a hotel drop-off.
