It’s wonderful to see the eagerly-awaited new Whales of Iceland exhibition open today and even better to see that its first visitor was Baldur Þorvaldsson, who is a friend of ours!
Whales of Iceland is the largest exhibition of its kind in Europe, possibly in the world and boasts almost two dozen lifesize models of the whale and dolphin species found around Iceland. This is a real state of the art exhibition with a clear mission statement: The team behind the exhibition has the utmost respect for whales and their habitat and believes that by informing guests this respect will grow, both in Iceland and abroad. We care for whales and do not support whaling in any way. We see whales for what they are: gentle giants from whom we can learn a lot.
If you visit Iceland this year, please pay Whales of Iceland a visit!
