CHOOSE A WHALE FRIENDLY RESTAURANT:

Please do not eat whale meat during your stay in Iceland, as it encourages the hunting of whales. Most Icelanders never eat whale meat, why should you?

Icewhale – The Icelandic Association of Whale Watchers and IFAW – The International Fund for Animal Welfare, have cooperated closely for several years. The aim is to inform and educate Icelanders and tourists about a few facts regarding whale meat consumption in Iceland and have their support to end commercial whaling instead of contributing to it by tasting it in restaurants. Read about the campaign.
