The midsummer evenings in Húsavík can be magical. That has exactly been the case for the last few nights. Due to high demand, Húsavík Adventures added a second 19:00 tour yesterday evening in what turned out to be an A+ whale watching tour. Our RIB boats Kría (Arctic Tern) and Kjói (Arctic Skua) sailed side by side most of the tour in a paradise of big whales, puffins, dolphins and natural environment. The sea was like a mirror so the feeling for the passengers were more like sailing on a water.

In the tour at least 12 humpbacks were spotted with six of them being in the same area. A group of dolphins entertained the onlookers in their ever so good mood, jumping around in the calm conditions.

A fabulous tour overall and it reminds us why local people often talk about the “underestimated evening activity” in Húsavík, with the summer evenings often being very calm at sea and therefore excellent for whale watching as for other outdoor activities.

The following pictures were taken by our CEO Sigurður Veigar who worked as a guide for the tour.

So, it’s almost time for the next whale watching season. This will be the third one for Húsavík Adventures. Since day one, the company has underlined quality and personal service as the main focus. Luckily this has not gone unoticed by our dear customers. Fifty great reviews and none negative ones at TripAdvisor tells its story. Now it’s time for round three and we’re desperate to keep on going, making sure that our travellers have the best of time possible while in our hands.

This summer will start slowly, with one tour at 10 AM until 16th May when we add another tour at 1 PM. There will be at least five departures at the high season. The last tour of the day from 16th June- 15th July will be our very special “Midnight Sun Tour” at 22:30. Last year the tour was a hit for those who joined us, enjoying the beautiful Icelandic midnight sun while watching the activities of some of the largest animals of the world. And the best part – being alone in the bay few or no other boats in our way. We’re hoping to make this product even bigger this year.

We’re looking forward to see you!

With warm respect,

Húsavík Adventures’s crew
