Snæfellsnes Pt.2 : The Whale Watching Bridge

Seal Watching on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula in Iceland Our first stop on a full Saturday of exploring (day two of a weekend trip to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula on the west coast of Iceland) was bridge near Grundarfjörður  known to be a great spot to see whales and seals that have swum up into the fjord. We didn’t see any whales from this spot (stay tuned for an epic Killer Whale spotting tale in an upcoming post), but we saw a few seals right by the shore. One (we named him Albert) was very curious. He would stare at us, dive under, and pop up closer, as if he was as curious to see us as we were to see him. The sun hadn’t yet broken through the cloud cover, and the sky was filled with a gorgeous winter morning haze, so that the snowy mountains seemed to fade into the sky.
