Iceland is prety unforgettable so it takes alot to make a particular trip stand out. We were recommended by Iceland Unlimited to go to Husavik to whale watch rather than Rekjavik as it would be less busy and there were more whales. To be honest I've been on lots of wildlife tours and not infrequently one sees one blob in the distance which a guide will assure you is a bear/tortoise/condor whatever and that is it. Well, we saw 11 humpbacks on this trip including one that came within a couple of metres of the boat. It really was a thrilling experience and genuinely unforgettable. The crew were very friendly and the provision of all-weather lined suits was very welcome indeed. It couldn't have been a better day. It was also excellent value. The trip lasted about 4 hours and cost about £110 for a family of four which I think is excellent value by anyone's standards - let alone in Iceland where things can be more than a bit pricy. We toured the whole island and I would like to highly commend Iceland Unlimited - they were a small friendly bunch with an encyclopaedic knowledge and put together a fabulous itinerary for our 12 days. I liked the way they gave us a mobile phone to make free calls in Iceland. On a couple of occasions we rang them about different excursions and they answered straightaway and sorted things out for us really efficiently. This is one place I think where it probably is cheaper and certainly much better to book accomodation and trips through a company rather than trying to do it ad hoc (as we usually do). Recommend the company and recommend Husavik and North Sailing - one of the most memorable things we have ever done. Thank you
