"Meet Us Don’t Eat Us" means busting the myth that whale meat is an Icelandic tradition, and opting instead to see and experience the true mystical beauty of these creatures alive. Since 2011, more than 500 participants like you have been crucial in encouraging responsible tourism by helping to inform fellow visitors about the importance of not eating whale meat, and therefore saving the lives of minke whales in Icelandic waters. The demand for whale meat has never been lower, but we still need your help. Our exclusive Airbnb experience makes this awareness and conservation message accessible and fun for all. Come join us in making a difference! Our two-hour itinerary explores the history, challenges, solutions and stunning backdrops that surround whale conservation in Iceland. (1) Guided educational tour of the new Whales of Iceland exhibition, as well as an introduction to Icelandic whale hunting and whale conservation initiatives. (2) Early lunch at the popular Röst Bistro in the Old Harbour. (3) A visit to the Elding information boat, where you will learn more about the whale meat industry and its effect on Iceland’s waters, culture, politics and more. (4) Optional/Seasonal: Hit the streets to help educate and encourage other visitors not to consume whale meat (5) Then you're off on a breathtaking whale watching adventure of your own with a discounted ticket from us!
