Overview

Ride an Icelandic horse through the countryside, then watch for whales on the Eyjafjord with a 7-hour nature tour from Akureyri. The 1.5-hour ride is well suited to both beginning and experienced riders, and the Eyjafjord is home to a thriving population of humpback whales: you’ll have 3 hours of time on the water, with views of the stunning fjord landscape. All activities are included in this 7-hour nature tour, with optional hotel pickup in Akureyri.
  • 7-hour combination tour from Akureyri
  • Ride an Icelandic horse
  • Watch for humpback whales on a scenic fjord
  • Hotel pickup in Akureyri
  • Instant Confirmation
This flexible tour includes the option for hotel pickup in Akureyri, starting 30 minutes prior to the 10am start time, or you can make your way to the stables in a private vehicle. Upon arrival at the Icelandic horse stables, get fitted out with safety equipment, and find the horse that’s right for your skill level.

If you’re a beginning rider, start by learning the basics of riding a horse, then follow a riding guide on a 1.5-hour, scenic tour of the area. Pack your bathing suit for this tour: if there’s time after your ride, you may have the chance to soak in the on-site hot tub before continuing to Eyjafjord.

Continue to the harbor in your own vehicle or the included transfer, then board a whale watching boat for a 1pm departure. Keep your eyes on the water during the 3-hour whale watching tour, and listen for the sounds of the humpback whales that travel to Eyjafjord each summer. It’s very likely that you’ll see whales on the tour, but if not, you’ll be invited back for a free whale-watching tour. This 7-hour tour concludes at Akureyri harbor.
