A rather complicated tour the one of this morning! Despite we enjoyed clear skies and the ambience temperature was not exceptionally low for Icelandic Winter standards, the wind was clearly playing against us today. We saw the first and only whale of the trip about 30 minutes after departure. Although we experienced a nice close encounter, we were not able to keep tracking the individuals due to the wind, so we proceeded our travel towards the North of the fiord. We went as far away as past the island of Hrísey (my personal record in the fiord!) but unfortunately, we were not able to spot any other whales. Nonetheless, we enjoyed an amazing view of the scenery, as the winter cold sun was throwing its dim rays over the mountain ranges that surround the fiord.
