Iceland One of 10 Best Whale Watching Destinations

Iceland is among the 10 best destinations worldwide for whale watching, according to an article in The Telegraph (UK).

"North-east Iceland offers whale-watching trips on beautifully restored fishing vessels. Minke whales and white-beaked dolphins are regularly seen and occasionally humpback and blue whales. Also worth a visit is Husavik's fascinating Whale Museum, located by the port. The first of its kind in Iceland, it has interpretive displays on the cetacean species found around Iceland, along with whale skeletons and other exhibits."

Other top 10 destinations are Alaska, Azores, California, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland, South Africa, Spain and Vancouver.
