    English below :) Nagyon élveztük az utat. A busz pontos volt, a túravezetők kedvesek, alaposak, és rengeteget meséltek a bálnákról, a szokásaikról, életmódjukról. Szerencsés napunk volt, nyugodt volt a víz és nagyon sok az orka; Krisztina és Norbert ügyességének köszönhetően egészen közelről láthattuk őket. A lavvo-este tökéletesre sikerült: a házigazdánk nagyon kitett magáért, mindenben segített. A kunyhók hangulatosak, a vacsora és a reggeli nagyon finom volt. Szerencsés esténk volt, mert gyönyörű tánccal lepett meg minket a sarki fény; de az élmény akkor is csoda lett volna, ha esetleg ez nem valósul meg. Everything was perfect. We had a lucky, amazing day with the orcas, Krisztina and Norbert are very kind guides, told us a lot about the whales, behaviors, everything. The lavvo stay was also excellent, our host was super kind, the dinner and the breakfast were delicious. We also had the chance to see beautiful Aurora. Thank you for this experience, we are really grateful!

    Leider wurde die Bootsfahrt zur Walbeobachtung aufgrund schlechter Wetterlage abgesagt. Das war natürlich super schade, aber Sicherheit geht nun einmal vor. Wir konnten dann kurzfristig noch zum Snowmobil Trip mit anschließender Übernachtung umbuchen. Der Transport klappt einwandfrei und ist super organisiert. Die Übernachtung im Lavvu ist einfach spitze! Mitten in der Natur, spartanisch, allerdings super gemütlich. Trotz schlechter Wettervorhersage haben wir den größten Teil des Abends draußen verbracht. Hinter den Lavvus ist eine kleine Anhöhe von der man super gut den Himmel beobachten kann. Wir hatten dann auch Glück und das lange Warten wurde mit traumhaften Polarlichtern belohnt. Man sollte auf jeden Fall eine Taschenlampe oder Stirnlampen mitnehmen, da es bereits gegen 16 Uhr stockdunkel ist.
