September Whale Watching: See wild humpback whales in exceptional surroundings in Skjálfandi Bay
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.
Humpback whales on every trip in September
According to North Sailing’s veteran whale watching guide, Christian Schmidt, humpback whales have been seen on every trip this September. “As usually in September the humpback whales are still around, and this year we have been fortunate to see them on every single tour,” says Christian that is guiding his 12th season with North Sailing.
