Finally, the winter has given us a day to remind us how bold we are by doing whale watching tours in the North of Iceland, in January. We faced a strong wind that kept increasing continuously until the end of our trip. The sky was, however, becoming clearer and clearer, and we enjoyed a beautiful landscape lighted by astonishing yellows and reds from dawn. The ride was… well, interesting. The good thing is that, definitely, our Humpback whales are still in our main sighting area (we spotted 3-4 individuals overall). However, the wind was so strong that the waves were continuously hiding the animals, and the blows were particularly difficult to follow. We are looking forward for this strong gale to fade away soon, so we can keep having the best Whale Watching Winter tours in Iceland!
