5/11 Iceland

During the summer months, from April to September, you can see over 20 species of cetacea, including orca, minke, humpback, and blue whales, in the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans on either side of Iceland. Thanks to the efforts of IceWhale, the Icelandic Whale Watching Association, local operators adhere to strict guidelines for whale-watching that aim to safeguard the sustainability of the island’s fast-growing whale-watching industry. One its members is Elding, a family-owned company based in Reykjavik, which operates five boats for whale-watching tours from the capital, including a Whales and Northern Lights tour from about £104 per adult and £52 per child.
