About us

The founders and owners of Harpa Yachts have been in tourism since 1998 and are pioneers in whale watching in Reykjavik.

In 2001 we bought a 200 passengers catamaran ferry and started whale watching from Reykjavik. The first year we had several hundreds of passengers and every year there was an increase until today whale watching from Reykjavik is one of the biggest activities with hundreds of thousands going every year on a whale watching tour.

In 2007, after a merger with another company the owners turned their focus to other fields in tourism until 2012. when we bought the motor yacht Harpa.

Harpa Yachts is a family owned company with huge focus on personnel and good service. We operate small group tours where we are able to ensure the best quality for our customers.

Our tours are Whale watching tours, Northern lights tours, New Year’s Eve tour, themed tours like on Cultural night in Reykjavik, Secret solstice musical festival, Airwaves musical festival and Gay pride to mention a few.

We operate both private tours and open scheduled tours in Whale watching and Northern lights tours.

M/Y HARPA is a fully equipped luxury motor yacht, built in Pisa in Italy. The brand is the famous Cantieri di Pisa.
