About Katla

Katla Whale Watching is a family owned company

Based in Reykjavík Iceland, it’s operated by father and sons, as well as good friends.
This Icelandic family is known for its lifelong passion for enjoying Icelands beautiful
nature and that was the motivation for entering the whale watching scene.

The name Katla is a common female name in Iceland and is the name of one of the biggest active volcanos in the country,
but the biggest factor in choosing that name was that it’s the name of the fathers grandchild.

Our goal is to offer a powerful and exciting activity that our customers enjoy and are happy about.

“Wonderful Whale Watching”

We decided to book our whale watching tour with Katla because of the helpful and informative web-page together with great reviews.
The welcoming was really warm and friendly by the guide and captain giving us all useful information.
