Elding Adventure at Sea


Elding Adventure at Sea is a tour operator with a focus on various adventures at sea. We are a family-owned company with decades of experience that originated through personal interest in wildlife, boats, and people. When we started we believed that offering whale watching tours would be a great way to unite these interest and also the perfect service to locals and tourists that have yet to experience Iceland’s marine life and surrounding waters. Over the years our products and service have developed a great deal; from small-scale seasonal to all year round products.

We have a range of scheduled tours but our vessels are also available to charter for exclusive and incentive tours for groups in various sizes. We can host any type of event; from business meetings to employee outings, networking to incentives and unforgettable group events. It is our firm belief that Iceland’s surrounding waters are as important as its land, and a trip to Reykjavík is not complete without seeing its beauty from the sea.

We have excellent naturalist guides that can adjust their guidance to the group’s needs and wishes. English is our main language but guidance in other languages can be arranged upon request. On board, we have a cafeteria with light refreshments. We can also provide special lunch packs upon requests and impressive dining on board or on Viðey island.


Our tours and activities can easily be combined e.g. with a dining experience at MAR restaurant in Reykjavík Old Harbour or a visit to Viðey island where the fascinating Viðeyjarstofa restaurant stands. Viðeyjarstofa is a 18th-century building projecting elegance through its unique style and spirit. The Loft seats up to 130 person banquet style for fine dining. The rooms on the ground floor are for smaller gatherings and meetings.


Taking your meeting to sea away from the hustle and bustle of the city is a great way to create focus and attention. Two of Eldings vessels provide unique settings for a business meeting or any kind of social gathering. The 170 passenger Hafsúlan has a lounge that seats 110 persons but the best size for meetings is 40-60 persons. It is equipped with four 50” HD screens, one in each corner for good viewing. The 140 passenger Elding seats 40 in the lounge. It has two 32” HD screens.

Bring your PowerPoint or other material on a USB key or another mobile device and plugin. Catering is available as per request.

Based in the heart of Reykjavík, the Old Harbour, our tours can be a fantastic start of an adventurous day, a well-deserved break on a busy day or a perfect end of a successful day.
