There is a long tradition for North Sailing to offer students of Borgarhólsskóli, Húsavík’s primary school, to autumn sailing around Skjálfandi Bay. The other day around 100 students and teachers joined us on the boats Bjössi Sör and Náttfari and sailed around the bay, spotted humpback whales and then landed in Flatey Island.
Beautiful autumn colours, fresh snow in the mountains and humpback whales on every trip. September sure is an excellent month for whale watching in Húsavík. After a great whale watching summer, Skjálfandi Bay and its surroundings are now slowly putting on their winter coat. The first fresh snow has appeared in the majestic mountains Víknafjöll and the autumn colours along the coastline add to the experience of sailing in this time of the year.
Yet another excellent summer for whale watching in Husavik. Breaching humpback whales, playful dolphins, the mighty blue whales and even killer whales. No wonder people say that Husavik is the Whale Watching Capital of Iceland! When you think of whale watching in Iceland, what place comes to mind? Yes, we thought so. Husavik – a charming little fishing village in the North of Iceland sure is the place for whale watching in Iceland.
