Another winter afternoon in Akureyri with freezing temperature of at least -12 degrees we sailed out the Fjord to look for the Whales. A beautiful snowy landscape, calm ocean and lots of birds that were keeping us company made the tour very enjoable from the beginning. It took us a while to find two very relaxed Humpback whales travelling together around Hrisey Island. They were surfacing ofen and calmly, going for dives together. Both whales have been our regular visitors this winter and we’ve seen them a lot in January but not together. We stayed with them for a while but didn’t want to disturb them and headed back to Akureyri under the sky in already sunset colours above Eyafjordur.
