Borea is a fully licensed adventure guiding company based in Ísafjörður in the heart of the Westfjords of Iceland.

The founders of Borea have always recognized the great potential of adventure tourism surrounding their home, yet little was being done to encourage it. They wanted to let people enjoy their home environment in the same way they had done since they were young.

Borea was created in 2006 and focuses on both short day trips for everyone and exclusive expeditions to remote corners in the Arctic.

The company is operated by sailors, climbers, skiers, and sea kayakers that find their inspiration in the unique wilderness that surrounds them.

All our guides are local Icelanders and good friends that have designed each trip to operate in full harmony with nature.

Borea Adventures is run by Rúnar Karlsson and Nanný Arna Guðmundsdóttir. They are both born in Ísafjörður and living there. They have years of experience in all sorts of outdoor activities in Iceland and know the Westfjords like the back of their hand. The company only hires guides with thorough knowledge in backcountry skiing, sea kayaking, hiking and that have great respect for the natural environment.

Whale Safari

Whale Safari was founded in 2006 under the name of Sea Safari. We are pioneers in whale watching on RIB boats in Iceland, the first ones on the water. Ingólfur Guðlaugsson founded the company with the ambition to bring nature lovers and adventurers closer to the wildlife of Faxaflói Bay, including its whales, dolphins and birds.

In 2015 Torfi G Yngvason bought the company and took over the reigns. Mr. Yngvason has worked in the outdoor guiding industry for his entire adult life, having founded Arctic Adventures, Glacier Guides, Arctic Rafting and worked as a guide for more then a decade.

Our aim is to provide outstanding tours in harmony with nature.

We use our fast RIB boats with the utmost respect for the wildlife. The capability, manoeuvrability and speed of RIB boats means that we can cover a larger area then the standard whale watching ships. This increases our odds of viewing whales, dolphins and puffins in their natural habitat. When we do find our marine mammal friends you will be closer to them and the ocean than ever possible on the larger ships. Viewing these magnificent beings from a RIB boat is a once in a lifetime experience not soon to be forgotten.


We are proud to be the first and only small group whale watching company as well as being the first operator in Reykjavík that uses RIB boats along side bigger ships for whale watching. Whale Safari (and its former name Sea Safari) is a family owned company that began with a keen and real passion for wildlife, boats and people. In our mind whale watching and puffin tours are a great way to unite these interests while giving locals and foreign visitors to Iceland the chance to view Iceland’s marine life.

The company was founded in 2006, and over the years our tours and services have changed and progressed a great deal; from the humble beginnings of seasonal tours to a year-round operation. It´s not hard to imagine why whale watching has become one of the top three tourist adventures in Iceland.


We believe that our experience and passion enable us to deliver the best tours humanly possible. We truly put great care and detail into our services and customer care. We have profound respect and love for nature as it has become a lifestyle for us. As our tours are authentic wildlife tours each trip can be remarkably different then the previous. We wish all our guests the best of luck!

Elding Whale Watching Iceland


Elding Whale Watching offers the most talked-about whale watching and sea adventure tours in Iceland. With decades of experience, we provide responsible whale watching tours, year round. Our other tours include incentive and exclusive tours, and the ferry to Viðey Island.

We also have seasonal tours. In summer we offer puffin watching and sea angling, and in winter our tours include Northern Lights Cruises and Imagine Peace Tours.


We are proud to be the original whale watching operator in Reykjavík. Elding is a family owned company that began with a personal interest in wildlife, boats and people. Whale watching tours were the perfect way to unite these interests while giving locals and tourists the chance to experience Iceland’s marine life.

We started in 2000, and over the years our products and services have developed a great deal; from small-scale seasonal tours to year-round products, and whale watching is now one of the top three tourist activities in Iceland.


In early 2016 we began operating out of the heart of Akureyri in North Iceland where we now have two types of vessels and thus experiences to choose from (one 200 passenger catamaran and two 12 seater RIB’s). Our first year we had 100% whale sightings and we continue to see multiple whales daily! The unbeatable closeness to nature and wildlife is unlike any other.

As an added bonus – our complimentary tickets (in case there are no sightings on our tours) are now valid in either Reykjavík or Akureyri.


We follow IceWhale’s codes of conduct for responsible whale watching as well as following our own stricter guidelines. We take part in international cooperation on the future of whale watching, e.g. IWC and Planet Whale. To advance our knowledge we participate and support marine biologists reserach on wildlife in our area. Elding also is the first and only environmentally certified whale watching company in Iceland.

Láki Tours

LÁKI TOURS is a thriving family-owned company in Grundarfjörður which specializes in whale watching and bird watching 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 them and 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.

Láki Tours adheres to the Ice Whale Code of Conduct, which dictates how boats should manoeuvre around whales and dolphins. One of our owners was instrumental in designing and implementing the Code of Conduct as an important part of being an environmentally conscious and sustainable whale watch. It ensure that we do not disturb the animals we are watching, by dictating the distance, direction and speed at which we approach the whales. We will often turn off the engines and drift with the animals, if conditions allow, so you can have a magical encounter with them, but with minimal disturbance. As we are the only whale watch company in both the areas we work, there will never be more boats than whales, again ensuring minimal disturbance.
