Humpback Whale Watching Dalvík North Iceland with Arctic Sea Tours. After we met the first mammal giants on our first Whale Watching tour in Husavík, we got so excited and fascinated, we wanted to see more whales. Lucky us, we had a little extra time during our 21-day Road Trip Iceland to try a second whale watching tour in North Iceland. Wonderful sunny weather, a calm sea and a lot of whales with time for our whale-selfie (see below) made our adventure a great part of our 13 Top Highlights Road Trip Iceland.

Although we have to admit, the freshly caught fish from our trip in Husavík was the topping for our whale-adventure in Iceland. Enjoy our pictures and whale-selfie!
Road Trip Adventure Iceland Gay Couple Insider Tips – The first big challenge before our 21-days Road Trip to Iceland actually began, was the planning. Asking travel guides, books, blogs, and official websites was not really satisfactory concerning the length of our trip, choice of our rental car, the planning of our gay-friendly accommodations and assembling our camping equipment. Traveling Iceland in general but especially in late summer and early autumn makes good preparations necessary. Why? Since Iceland is called for a reason the country of fire and ice and for us, also the country of wind, especially between two seasons and the differences between West and East Iceland and South and North Iceland.

A Gay Couple traveling Road Trip North Iceland Part 7 – North Iceland is rough, wild, wilder than we thought. But its unique and remarkably beautiful part of Iceland with incredible landscape that made it all worth our road trip.

For this part of our 21-days Road Trip Iceland, we stayed at Brimnes Bungalows far north of the island, a gay-friendly accommodation perfect for hunting Northern Lights. But West Iceland was calling. Our second stay in North Iceland: the Hestasport Cottages, where we went on our North Icelandic adventures.
