Seal Watching Locations

The Icelandic Seal Center together with local land owners have worked to open and develop a number of public seal watching locations around the Vatnsnes peninsula.

These locations are

Svalbarð

Illugastaðir

Hvítserkur

Each area offers you a different perspective and experience of both the seals and the wonderfull nature and landscape of the area.

For the best seal watching it is important to arrive at the seal watching areas 2 hours before to 2 hours after the low tide time. This time factored with good weather conditions usually produces the largest numbers of seals hauled out onto the rocks and beaches, or playing close to the coast.
