Snowy landscape and harbour porpoises
After a day without going out in the bay, due to bad weather condition, we went out for our first day with two tours this season.
The weather was still a little rainny but the visibility was excellent. Despite our best efforts, we still weren´t able to find large whales, even though a nice group of harbour porpoise appeard on each tour.
The landscape on the west side of the bay was more stunning than ever, mainly thanks to the impressive snow cover that has come over Viknafjöll over the last days.
The team of workers from Gilleleje´s shipyard (Danemark) have been working on our ships over the past weeks. And they came with us on the morning tour.

The old house of Naustavik, which was originally the home of two brothers, working as fishermen. The house is still accessible in the summer after a beautiful hike through the mountains.
