A visit to the Whales of Iceland museum is a must for all whale watchers and features 23 life-size models of different whale species. In addition to the museum, whale watching and puffin watching boat tours can also be booked from Reykjavik.
The country is also known for its exotic wildlife. Whether brought to the island by early settlers or native to Iceland, animals like seals, foxes, reindeer and puffins are all a common sight on the island.
Alternatively, you can relax in Iceland’s unique geothermal pools with a visit to the famous Blue Lagoon or the much quieter Geysir and Strokkur geothermal pools. Or, take the chance to snorkel in the crystal clear waters of the Silfra Fissure or observe puffins in their natural habitat at the secluded Ingolfshofdi Cape.
