Láki tours

Winter whale watching from Grundarfjörður from 15th November - 31st March. For the past years, the herring has chosen the Snæfellsnes Peninsula as overwintering habitat, and right behind the fish are the killer whales. This phenomenon provides a golden opportunity to see (and hear) orcas as they are feeding, travelling, or socializing.

Puffin tour from Grundarfjördur from 1st June - 20th August. A nature reserve on the nearby island Melrakkaey attracts hundreds of puffins and other seabirds. It is wonderful to see puffins lined up along the edge of the cliffs like sentries on watch while the other birds wade and warble through the waves around the island with its basalt columns. A one-hour plus tour on Láki offers the maximum potential to see these furry creatures in their nesting environment. A slow cruise around the island gives photographers a golden opportunity to capture the variety of birds on the island through their lenses. This amazing trip is not just about birds - the setting for the trip with Mt. Kirkjufell dominating the scenery also lends enchantment to the view, especially on our sunset tours.

The Summer Whale Watching Tour from the Snæfellsnes National Park. Láki Tours offers whale watching tours from Ólafsvík from 1st April - 15th September and Hólmavík from 15th June - 20th August. Nowhere else in Iceland is there a chance to see the Big Five, than along the Snæfellsnes Peninsula coastline: Blue Whale, Fin Whale, Humpback Whale, Minke Whale and Killer Whale. The landscape is magnificent around the Glacier and even more so from sea.
