Some of Iceland’s best seal watching locations are at the Vatnsnes peninsula in north Iceland.
Closely monitored by the nearby Icelandic Seal Center in the town of Hvammstangi together with local land owners, each area offers visitors a different perspective of the seals. It is not unusual to see large numbers of them lying the rocks and beaches, or playing close to the coast.
The distance from Reykjavík to the town of Hvammstangi is 194 km (120 mi) by car.
