Bye bye with Halloween

In Iceland we love fairy tales and stories about hidden people, trolls and elves so couldn´t resist the opportunity that Halloween was giving us to celebrate our last tours of the year. The weather couldn´t have been better: flat seas, no wind and unbelievable scenery. Regardless our lack of pumpkins in such a stated date, our captain was properly dressed in a fashion orange color and it brought us a lot of luck. We spotted and enjoyed minke whales as well as few pods of white-beaked dolphins which swan with us for a while. This season has been full of extraordinary moments which couldn´t have been better without the incredible staff that we have had all along the last months. To all of you Takk fyrir!
