High-speed extreme adventure trip on powerful RIB-boats in Akureyri, North Iceland. Breathtaking scenery in close contact with wildlife and whales. An adrenaline rush, not recommended for children under 10 years of age or people under 140 cm in height.


The Whale Watching Extreme Tour is a fast paced power tour in our powerful RIB boats. Experience the panoramic view of Akureyri, especially beautiful at night.

We will race out the fjord between the mountains, only slowing down momentarily for the spectacular sights on the way. We look out for seabirds and search for whales in the fjord.

On our RIB boats, we have the possibility to cover much more area in the same amount of time, hence making the search for the whales more effective. We have been incredibly lucky so far. Last year, we had a 100% sighting rate from June to October!

But whales are living beings with a will of their own, so nothing can be taken for granted. Hopefully, we find whales and then linger, giving you an opportunity to enjoy the company of those magnificent creatures and some breathtaking photo-ops.


  • A two hour trip packed with excitement.
  • Safety overalls are provided.
  • Life vests are provided.
  • Goggles are provided.

What do I need to bring?

Gloves and hats are not provided, but warm hats can be bought at our ticket office.

Please be present at our office 30 minutes before departure.

This will give us time to dress up and prepare for the trip.

We acknowledge that the ocean is a very special place and home to a variety of marine wildlife. No one can determine what wildlife you will encounter. But we guarantee with our speed, networking and experience you’ll enjoy the best of what the fjord has to offer at the time of your trip!
