What to expect?

Seal watching is a new experience in Icelandic tourism. We offer boat trips from Hvammstangi around Miðfjörður and Húnaflói during the summer, giving you the opportunity to watch seals in their natural environment. Seals are sea mammals that live in the northern hemisphere. They keep close to the shores so they can crawl up on big rocks or beaches to rest. Even though seals are wild animals, it does not take them long to get used to the closeness of humans.

Seals are curious by nature so with a good camera, and a telephoto lens, you can expect to get marvelous photos of them in their natural environment. Join us on a trip and see the seals and the nature of Miðfjörður with your own eyes.
