Hólmavík in the Westfjords of Iceland is a wonderful place for whale watching in Iceland. The star in the fjord around Holmavik is the humpback whale. This whale is known for its melodic songs and for breaching the water with amazing acrobatic abilities. Other whales we see are minke whales, pilot whales and orcas.
