Holiday Company Offering Trip To Swim With Whales Under The Midnight Sun

Holiday Company Offering Trip To Swim With Whales Under The Midnight Sun

If you're after a piece of escapism following what has been something of a washout of a year for most of us, how about planning a getaway next year where you can swim under the midnight sun with a load of whales in Iceland.

Well, it's one way to pass the time, isn't it?

So if you've saved up a load of cash during the time we've not been allowed to leave the country - or even our own homes - maybe you could put some of that extra cheese towards a really memorable experience in 2021.

Assuming all of this is over by then, you can head off to the land where the sun never sets, to spend some quality time with a load of humpback whales as they migrate from the warm climes of the Caribbean to the Arctic north.

The firm offering up this unique treat is luxury holiday company Black Tomato, and they're billing this as the opportunity to see these majestic creatures 'beneath the midnight sun'.

That's right, as you're probably aware, during the summer months it never gets dark in the northern parts of the world.

The five-day trips will take place between June and August next year, and will start off in the Icelandic capital city, Reykjavik.

Then, you'll head on up to Eyjafjörður - easy for you to say - which is one of the biggest fjords in the country.

That's where you'll get the chance to swim and snorkel among the gigantic whales.

You can jet ski around Ólafsvík, or take a dip in the sea around the island of Grímsey, too.

However, you'd better have already started saving up, as this jaunt comes at a fairly steep price.

It starts at £7,750 ($9,998) per person, and that doesn't include flights.

To be fair, it's a once in a lifetime experience, so you'd expect it to be pretty dear.

A statement from the holiday company reads: "At Black Tomato, we are always in search of the wondrous, rare moments in travel - the ones that take your breath away - that no one has done before.

"We put our heads together, researching and designing a once-in-a-lifetime world first: snorkelling and swimming with humpback whales under the midnight sun in Iceland."

If this is your thing, and you've got the readies to make it happen, you can start getting excited about next summer, if you-know-what is all over by then. You can find out more about the trip on Black Tomato's website.
