After a couple of difficult days, we had a wonderful winter day with clear skies, no wind, and the sun was, finally, shinning above the entire fiord. It didn’t take too long until we found our first cetacean of the tour, a humpback whale. The individual was chilling around, going for slightly long dives, and giving us a nice show for more than 40 minutes. Afterwards we tried to find some other whales but unfortunately we didn’t find any, so we came back on our steps to enjoy the Humpback for a few more minutes. We also got to see a small pod of Harbour porpoises quite close to Akureyri. A wonderful way to end our trip.
