Icebergs on Skjálfandi Bay
An exciting phenomena has been sighted floating around off the north cost of Iceland for the last days.
A number of icebergs have been drifting around, a few of them came all the way into the bay and could be seen in our tours, as well as from land. It´s quite uncommon to see icebergs around Iceland so the inhabitants of Húsavík, as well as travelers, were astonished at this sight.
These Icebergs have their origin from Greeland and due to westerly and northwesterly winds they have been nearing Iceland for last days and weeks.
In North Sailing´s trips today, our captains took a detour to show our passengers these blue, icecold and fascinating phenomina.
Following are a few pictures taken by one of our crew, of one of the icebergs, just in front of the Húsavík harbour.

Some beautiful formations appeared in the middle of the iceberg.
The ice was very close to Húsavík harbour. Here you can see Húsavík in the background.
Close up but only 1/10 of the iceberg is above the surface. Can you see a face, hiding in the ice?
