Láki Tours

Láki Tours offers responsible whale watching from Hólmavík in the south-eastern Westfjords area called Strandir. The most common whales in the fjord are humpback whales. They are known for their spectacular acrobatic behavior which can include flipper and tail slapping, its curiosity around boats and breaching.

Join our knowledgeable crew for a great time out in the Steingrimsfjordur Fjord. This fjord is incredibly sheltered from most wind directions meaning the boat trip is usually very smooth and calm plus tours rarely have to be canceled. Since the whales often stay very close to land this 2-hour tour with almost 100% sighting guarantee is one of the shortest whale watching options in Iceland. It is the perfect trip for families, provides golden opportunities for photographers and is ideal for travelers who are afraid of getting sea sick.

Kálfanesborgir

the hike to Kálfanesborgir above Hólmavík is quite short and easy. The hike starts at the camping ground and there is a trail that leads you to a small cairn on top of the hill. This cairn is called Háborgarvarða. From this spot you can enjoy the view over Steingrímsfjörður and Grímsey island. This spot is also perfect to take pictures or to rest a bit for the journey home. When you walk again into Hólmavík you can either go the same route, or you can make it a loop by walking towards the ocean on the other side until you reach the old mainroad. This road will then lead you towards the town again and you'll find your way.
