Yet another stunning waterfall in Iceland. Aldeyjarfoss is situated in the north of Iceland, north of the highland road Sprengisandur (Road F26). Therefor the waterfall is almost on the boarder of the highlands. It is an overwhelming sight to see the powerful river, Skjálfandafljót drop 20 meters down next to the majestic basalt columns in Aldeyjarfoss. Besides the basalt columns the lava field it is a part of contains a broad variety of rock formation. Although bit of a hassle to get to since a 4WD vehicle is needed a pitstop by Aldeyjarfoss is completely worth it.

Húsavík is the whale watching capital of Iceland and possibly the world.  The whale watching companies running services out from Húsavík have a very high success rate at finding large animals and members of the whale family in the Skjálfandi Bay. Some of the companies have over twenty years of experience and are offering state of the art service in every way, like North Sailing, the one we choose. They have a variety of wonderful old oak fishing boats and schooners that have been modified to safety standards and convenience for whale watching.

Suddenly and literally out of the blue, one of them suddenly breached.
