12th May the year 2000, Elding went it’s first trip with guests – the trip was from Kópavogur to Sandgerði. Here you can see a old photo of our first boat, where the company name comes from, ELDING.
Elding is still used on our tours, mostly for private tours and what a beauty it is. Elding (the boat) has been used as a rescue boat, fishing vessel, tugboat, divers boat and now a whale watching vessel!
Elding Whale Watching is a family business that started with with a personal interest in wildlife, boats and people, and ELDING (the boat), did have a big part of our start.
THANK YOU to all that have joined us on a tour, we are definitely looking forward to the future!

REYKJAVIK’S ORIGINAL WHALE WATCHING OPERATOR
We are proud to be the original whale watching operator in Reykjavík. Elding is a family owned company that began with a personal interest in wildlife, boats and people. Whale watching tours were the perfect way to unite these interests while giving locals and tourists the chance to experience Iceland’s marine life.
We started in 2000, and over the years our products and services have developed a great deal; from small-scale seasonal tours to year-round products, and whale watching is now one of the top three tourist activities in Iceland.
EXPERIENCE AND ENTHUSIASM AT ELDING
We believe in using our experience and enthusiasm to make the best tours available. We truly put great care into the business, and whale watching has become a lifestyle for us. As our tours are authentic wildlife tours and each one is unique.
RESPONSIBLE WHALE WATCHING
We follow IceWhale’s codes of conduct for responsible whale watching as well as following our own stricter guidelines. We take part in international cooperation on the future of whale watching, e.g. IWC and Planet Whale. To advance our knowledge we participate and support marine biologists reserach on wildlife in our area. Elding also is the first and only environmentally certified whale watching company in Iceland.
