Lovely sailing conditions today and a wonderful view. Yesterday we had snow blizzards all day and night so this morning the whole landscape was capped in a beautiful fresh powdered snow. The sun was also shining and warming our faces. We sailed all the way to Hrisey Island and back and saw some wonderful wildlife including; eider duck, kittiwake, northern fulmar, icelandic gull, storm petrel, long tailed duck and harbour porpoises. Throughout our sail we also noticed a large amount of fish on our fish finder as we sailed the fjord. However, there weren´t any whales to eat them today, so complimentary tickets were given out to passengers so they can come back and see some of the fantastic cetaceans Iceland has to offer.
