Calm windless morning, sky like like from ‘Disney’ movie and two relaxed Humpback whales - a wonderful day to be out there. We started the tour from enjoying stunning highlights of Eyafjordur landscape in warm sunrise sun. Just beyond Hjalteyri we spotted two Humpback whales and thick cloud of fog in which eventually it also started snowing and that created beautiful background to our Whales. Two humpbacks seemed to be very relaxed, at the beginning they kept distance from each other, later they started coming up together and at the end again separately with the distance from each other. We enjoyed observing them surfacing and showing up their flukes most of the tour - because of thick fog it would be hard to look for more animals, but as we didn’t want to interrupt them too long, we headed back to Akureyri.
