Ísafjörður, Westfjords, Iceland

Jul 11, 2018 - National Geographic Explorer


Guests awoke docked alongside the beautiful town of Ísafjörður, at the foot of spectacular glacier-carved mountains. The morning’s itinerary included two options: a hike through spectacular scenery to Valagil waterfall or a scenic flowers-and-fjords tour. In true expedition style, the afternoon was spent searching for whales, followed by an impromptu landing at Ædey, a seabird colony never before visited by Lindblad.

About the Author

James Coleman

Naturalist

Jamie is from England. He grew up in Oxford, about as far from the sea as you can get in the UK, yet somehow decided he would work in marine biology and conservation. Ever since he reached his teens, he has dedicated time to this passion, working and volunteering in various roles on nature reserves and in aquariums. It was no surprise that in 2007, he left home to study marine biology at the University of Newcastle.

About the Photographer

Rory Mulloy

Naturalist/Expedition Diver

Rory’s underwater experiences began while working on a citizen science project in Tobago, conducting surveys of coral reefs with Coral Cay Conservation. After completing a degree in foreign languages, and returning to his hometown London, it wasn’t long before Rory felt the lure of the ocean. Thanks to serendipitous circumstances (and some words from President JFK) he soon quit office life to pursue his dream job of working with great white sharks in Australia.
