Summer in Iceland and Norway! If you prefer volcanoes, waterfalls and glaciers, Iceland is the best choice. If you’re more into deep fjords and steep cliffs, Norway is the thing. Home of summer: California.
The Lofoten and Vesteralen Islands in Northern Norway are among the most spectacular places in the world. And they are great for whale watching, too!
Whales can be observed all year round – and in summer, all four seasons can be experienced at only one day!
In summer chances are pretty good to see humpbacks, belugas, finbacks and blue whales at the eastern coast of Canada.
The most beautiful beaches, the wildest coastlines and the most beautiful parks: California has it all, including very good whale watching locations.
Most likely whales JULY
Sperm whales are best seen from Andenes, Norway. Humpbacks spend their summer in Iceland. In California you have good chances to see orcas and even blue whales.
Sperm whales dive deeper than any submarines. During summer they can be spotted close to the coast in Norway.
During summer the Icelandic fjords are full of humpback whales. Watch them best from Husavik in the north east.
