Of all the mornings I woke up in beautiful places this must of been the most spectacular one. I never thought I would spend my morning on a small boat accompanied by a group of humpback whales! We arrived in a little town in the north of Iceland named Husavik the night before. This town is known for having the perfect sea climate for whales and so is an extremely popular spot for all kinds of whales to unite. We woke up early and got on a small boat to spend our morning with the whales!
Honestly, I believe that this was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. The moment you leave the harbour it gets quieter and quieter. You can hear the wind moving the sea, the birds flying above you. Everyone is quiet, concentrating on the sea. Then something spectacular happens, the most beautiful animal appears from the depth and gives you a glimpse of its beauty. I must say, water filled my eyes. – Yes, it is that beautiful. I am not exaggerating when I say that this is a MUST when visiting Iceland.
You even get a hot chocolate and a cinnamon bun! I mean, what more do you want! This experience was mind blowing and I highly reccomend you to go on this adventure by getting your ticket from the company named North Sailing! They have an amazing service, cheapest tickets in Husavik, extremely friendly and a variety of types of boats which you can choose from (including a ‘carbon free’ electric boat, which is environmentally friendlier and creates no sound, which means you are approaching the whales with minimum disturbance) And not to forget, hot chocolate and cinnamon buns are included!!
