Whales of Iceland

Whales of Iceland is a new exhibit that opened in the heart of Reykjavík’s old harbour area in February 2015. Close to downtown, this is truly an immersive exhibit that will take you into the world of the whales.

Whales of Iceland is the largest whales exhibition of its kind in the world. Featured are 23 life-size models of the species found in Icelandic waters. These range from one of the smallest marine mammals, the harbour porpoise, all the way up to the gigantic blue whale. Wander amongst these amazing animals while listening to their distinctive sounds in ambient lighting that will make you feel as though you are underwater with them.

We like our caves to be in their raw natural state and without any installed platforms or lights. That's what we call a proper caving adventure. Leidarendi lava tube has all that and more.
