When they say that Iceland is a windy place, well they are completely right. Today we had to face strong northerlies which were blowing through the fjord. The day has been quite productive in terms of birdlife as we have seen a lot of fulmars gliding in between the waves effortlessly, kittiwakes, eider ducks, arctic skuas and some northern divers. Apart from them, we got surprised early in the morning by a pod of 5-6 northern bottlenose whales but they were very unpredictable and difficult to follow. Even though we tried to spot them several occasions, we couldn´t follow them properly so we offered complimentary tickets to our passengers. Let’s hope that next days the fjord will bring more joy and great tours.
