Spend the 22nd (Tue) observing fascinating marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour. There's still lots to do: get a new perspective on nature at Perlan, see the interesting displays at The Settlement Exhibition, explore the world behind art at Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar), and get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.
