New Year in Iceland – Special Sighting on January 1, 2019

What did you do on the first day of the year 2019? Did you sleep late like the majority of people? Did you leave your comfortable couch at all? We here in Snaefellsnes definitely had more exciting things to do…

ORCAS in Snaefellsnes

ORCAS!! Yes, we had a special new year’s present today, with a group of orcas that we spotted travelling in Breiðafjörður. We got to see one male, one female and a calf close up. These are some of our very regular winter visitors and it is awesome to finally have them back in the area!

New Year in Snaefellsnes

If you are looking for a different way to celebrate New Year’s Eve, Iceland might be the right place for you. While in Reykjavik all is about fireworks and partying – the mood in Snaefellsnes is slightly different. Celebrate a peaceful New Year’s Eve in Snaefellsnes with the chance of seeing orcas. Unfortunately, there is never a guarantee to see them but what we know already now – if the weather cooperates, we will definitely look for them also on January 1, 2020.
