Iceland July 20th to 24th mammalwatching embeded in a visit to friends…


I made a trip with my partner to Iceland on July 20th to 24th 2023. This was not a mammal watching trip only, the main focus was to visit her friends in Reykjavik, but i managed to squeeze in a whale watching trip and we had a surprice encounter as well.

    Iceland is indeed a truly lovely country. And you did really well with the cetaceans! So great to have seen Orca’s from the shore.

      We felt very lucky to see the Orcas (and Humpbacks) from the shore, even more so because it was a true surprise and the numbers of individuals. It was an amazing end to our trip. Yesterday I got Hired to lead a hiking trip on the Laugavegur next summer, so now I know when Ill be back and even be paid for it :D. I plan to spend some time before or after the trip driving around looking for mammals (and birds).
