Description:

Laki Tours takes you on an ocean adventure in four different trips....

Laki Tours takes you on an ocean adventure in four different trips. Puffins galore can be spotted from the protected Melrakkaey island where thousands of other birds also nest. Sea-angling is the perfect family outing and gets even more exciting when you get to keep your catch. From Olafsvik, the Ocean's Big 5 tour promises excellent whale watching in deep waters at the foot of the majestic Snaefellsjokull Glacier.

Winter brings the orcas, dolphins and white-tailed eagles. We take you to them on what is by now, our most popular tour.

"We're living it!"

I went with my sis after three days in Grundarfjörður. We had a lovely time, though a bit cold! I advise everyone to dress up even warmer than you think is necessary! You get to borrow an overall which was a great help to keep us dry, but you'll be standing still for a long time so even with three... More

The area is amazing. The boat very comfortable and if you can observe some animals, the tour is perfect. The crew is very friendly and they always try to find the creatures. If you go to Iceland, you must go out with Laki.

The company running our tour did an excellent job outfitting us for cold air and sea spray with full body waterproof suits. Our captain appeared to maneuver carefully around the three pods of orcas we saw. Our guide was very knowledgeable about orcas and is active in the preservation of these amazing animals. I strongly recommend this trip and would... More

We had been pre-warned that the tour boat does not get close enough to the puffins to really see them well. So it was no surprise when our boat stayed a couple hundred feet off the shore of Melrakkey Island to view the puffins. We could see them, and watch them but not close enough to photograph them well. The... More

Drove from Reykjavik as I heard this is by far the best tour company - totally agree. Hot chocolate, 4 orca's, 2 Seal's and a amazing crew. Highly recommend. Marie knows her stuff on Orca's

We went out on the 23rd and had possibly one of the best days ever :). We were so lucky to see the Orca moving so peacefully through the water, there really is nothing like it. It was a lifelong dream and It was even better than I could have expected. The Laki Tours team were lovely and really committed... More

Having spent 25 years whale watching - as a tourist, as a researcher and as a guide - I was so looking forward to my trip with Laki Tours. The boat is a fantastic platform, well equipped with ample room inside and out for passengers, some nice interpretive materials inside. Really good bathroom - which is important! We had a... More

This team know the history of the orca whales in the area and are able to give a history of which you are seeing by their distinguished features. Was great experience and the group of people we were with really respected the viewing by being super quiet when seeing the beautiful whales though you can't guarantee this on every occasion...

This tour includes three hours on the boat and hopefully of course some whales. We got lucky the end of August - we saw many many pilot whales in the bay which is supposed to be quite rare at that time. The crew was very very nice, the captain was very careful to approach the animals and the guide was... More
