Whale Watching Iceland November: So many Humpback Whales in Húsavík!
Although the whale watching season in Húsavík is soon coming to an end the whales are not going anywhere! Late this November, Húsavík has once again proofed that it is the whale capital of Iceland, with humpback whales in numbers rarely seen before at this time of the year.
As the following images reveal, Skjálfandi Bay is crowded with humpback whales now! It’s cozy sailing around the Bay in the winter wonderland Iceland has become. With snow everywhere and the magical mountains around Skjálfandi Bay covered from top all the way down to the sea. Although it gets a bit cold in November, don´t worry because we provide everyone with warm overalls on board our traditional whale watching boats. Make sure however to dress warmly, and remember: layers, layers, layers!
‘When do the whales leave the Bay?’
It’s a common misunderstanding that we have some sort of control over the whales in the Bay. As we’re dealing with the wild nature, we always make sure we treat our friendly visitors with respect and allow them to approach us on their terms. This, among a lot of other factors, has led to whales and other wildlife staying forever longer in the Bay during winter — and arrive earlier in the spring! They must really like it here. Who can blame them? It’s a paradise!
