Iceland Winter Whale Watching Holiday

Iceland Winter Whale Watching Holiday Departures November to March from £1,039 per person. Ask us for availability, dates and full trip notes.

Experience Iceland’s unique and wild natural history on this whale watching holiday. We will be based in the traditional fishing village of Grundarfjordur on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, fringed by Breidafjordur. Renowned for the surrounding volcanic landscapes, including the snow-capped Snaefellsjokull Glacier, and array of wildlife in both the air and sea, the fjord offers unparalleled photo opportunities. As this is a winter tour there is always the chance too of seeing the Northern Lights! Highlights:

  • Whale watching – Boat trips with the opportunity to see a vast array of different whales including Orca, Minke and Sperm Whales
  • Natural phenomenon – A chance to see the Northern Lights in winter (or in summer experience the ‘land of the midnight sun’)
  • Snaefellsnes Peninsula – Known as ‘Iceland in miniature’. Stay in the small Icelandic fishing village of Grundarfjordur in waterfront accommodation
  • Iceland-IWN-map
From the beginning the professionalism and communication from Travel With Jules was brilliant and I couldn't have asked for more. I really believe I'll never go through another travel agent again. It was the most amazing holiday, seeing magnificent animals, I had a tear when I saw the blue whale! You arranged an amazing trip, thank you so much.

Thank you again for another wonderful holiday! Everything was very well organised and we cannot fault the attention to detail from the time we were greeted at Heathrow until our return. The Experts and Azorean Guides were excellent as was the accommodation and food on the ship. We visited all 9 islands which is rare as often the weather prevents one visiting Corvo due to bad weather and need to land using 10 person Zodiacs. We saw 7 whales and 3 species of dolphins!

Thanks for booking our holiday back to Iceland. The suggested itinerary and the provided written guide notes were first class. The spacing of the drives was just about right. I didn’t have a problem with the length of the drives as there are plenty of stops and the scenery is fabulous. We were particularly taken with the north of Iceland (Akureyri and Lake Myvatn).

The trip was amazing and we got to see the Northern Lights on Saturday and Sunday nights so that’s a bonus right there! Everything went without a hitch and we are all very grateful for your professional organisation.

Thank you for arranging Anita's special birthday treat holiday to Iceland - excellent service from Travel With Jules again - it was all wonderful! The waterfalls were particularly fantastic, the noise of the water, and the sheer beauty were breathtaking.

In my view life is too short NOT to use Julie's experience and contacts when booking a holiday! I couldn't recommend Travel With Jules more highly.

I just wanted to drop you a note to say we had a fantastic time in Iceland, no northern lights as it snowed so much, but it didn’t detract from the great scenery, people and food! Hotel Ranga was first class in terms of service and setting, and Hotel Centrum in Reykjavik was so close […]

Great short break to Iceland. The hotel in Reykjavik was lovely and the New Years Eve event was really good and the food was fantastic! Loved fireworks and the Blue Lagoon.

Julie arranged a  holiday for my husband and I to England, Norway and Iceland. A few months before the departure, I broke my ankle. It was uncertain whether I would be able to walk at the time of the holiday. Julie investigated all options, including cancellation and changing the dates. Eventually we decided to go […]

Iceland was amazing, the scenery was stunning and the geysers & glaciers took my breath away. The only thing was that I wanted to stay for longer! Thank you for all your help, you made things so easy for me. I'll be in touch for my next trip once I've saved some more money! Thanks again.

Julie's knowledge of the travel industry, her understanding of our needs and her friendly and professional approach made organising our honeymoon an effortless affair, in startling contrast from the wedding organisation happening at the same time!

We just returned from our second booking through Travel With Jules, where we visited Iceland and stayed in Reykjavik for a long weekend. We had a fantastic time and I would like to return next time with my children. Thank you Jules for organising another great trip … until the next one.

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
