Humpback Whale Watching in Dalvík with Arctic Sea Tours in North Iceland

Humpback Whale Watching in Dalvík with Arctic Sea Tours in North Iceland

Whale Watching Trip Part 2 – Humpback Whale Watching Tour in Dalvík, North Iceland with Arctic Sea Tours. After we met the first mammal giants on our first Whale Watching tour in Husavík, we became excited and fascinated, and we wanted to see more whales. Lucky us, we had a little extra time during our 21-day Road Trip around Iceland to try a second whale watching tour in North Iceland in Dalvík with Arctic Sea Tours. Wonderful sunny weather, a calm sea, and many whales with time for our whale-selfie (see below) made our adventure a great part of our 13 Top Road Trip Highlights to Iceland. If you are doubting which location is the best place for Whale watching in North Iceland, Husavík or Dalvík, choose the one that fits your itinerary better. Since both places in Iceland’s North offer a 99% chance of seeing whales during a tour (we saw whales on both trips), both ships have been clean, well maintained with friendly staff, and you get a local snack on your way back to the harbor. Although we have to admit, the freshly caught fish from our trip in Dalvík with Arctic Sea Tours was the topping for our whale adventure in Iceland. Enjoy a couple of men‘s pictures and the whale selfie!

Humpback Whale Watching Dalvík North Iceland

The early bird gets the worm. True to the motto, we had to get up early to drive to Dalvík (North Iceland) for our second whale watching tour with Arctic Sea Tours. Blue sky, sunshine, and no wind created a magical morning ambiance on the North Atlantic Sea. After everyone got dressed in the blue waterproof and warming onesies, our tour boat started the engines heading towards the whales.  But it was not necessary to going too far into the Fjord Eyjafjörður before we saw the first air fountains of one of the biggest mammals in the world.

We saw so many whales: time for a whale-selfie

We couldn’t stop taking pictures since we saw so many whales. Everyone was looking around, trying to spot the next giant coming up. And there again, a fountain exploding in the air not far from our boat. After a brief moment on the surface, when we see the whale’s dorsal fin, the whale lifts its tail and starts to dive deep into the dark sea to hunt and eat. But there, look, the next fountain! We enjoyed discovering the Fjord’s inhabitants for two hours while taking photos and getting to know the group of hilarious elderly Americans joining the trip. Even some dolphins showed up swimming in front of the boat—what a wonderful experience.

Gay Travel to North Iceland

North Iceland is rough, wild, wilder than we thought. But its unique and remarkably beautiful part of Iceland with an incredible landscape that made it all worth our road trip, leaving Lake Mývatn in central Iceland behind.

Fresh Icelandic Fish on the way back to Dalvík

On our way back to the coast, the tour group was allowed to do some deep-sea fishing. The guide explained everything about the caught fishes and how to prepare them. Accompanied by hungry screeching seagulls, we arrived overwhelmed and happy in the harbor of Dalvík. After a short break, the tour group assembled around the barbecue to taste the fresh deep-sea fish like butter on your tongue, so amazingly soft and tasteful. Even Daan, the vegetarian of us, tried a piece of the fresh grilled Icelandic fish. A wonderful end to our morning tour.
