The first carbon-neutral whale watch has taken place in Iceland after tourists enjoyed watching whales from a boat using electricity for its propulsion rather than the traditional diesel.
Iceland is one of the best places in the world to watch whales in their natural environment and Húsavík on the north coast offers wonderful opportunities to see these amazing creatures during the long summer days.
Local company, North Sailing, now has two vessels powered by electricity that take people out to look for species such as humpback whales and white-sided dolphins.
Researchers will be looking to see if the whales behave any differently around the noise-free boats to more traditional craft.
