We can debate forever the pros and cons of whale hunting in Iceland and elsewhere but it is the kind of topic too many feel too passionately about to make discussions worthwhile.

In theory, team Total Iceland is against the killing of whales but we also know how absolutely delicious rightly cooked whale meat tastes like. And who is to say whales are more important beasts than cows or bulls?[blockquote type=”blockquote_line” align=”right”]the activity is quite fascinating[/blockquote]

In any case, we know many out there demand a stop to whaling in Iceland and while you can send millions of emails and petitions forever in time without much change there is actually a physical location where your voice can be heard quite clearly. Or, as the case may be, watch the beasts being dragged ashore for processing. Trust us, the activity is quite fascinating.

Keep in mind there is not constant activity taking place here but only when whales are brought in by boats. This happens once or twice a day oftentimes in summertime.

Follow the map below for about 50 minutes and you´ll arrive at the only whaling station operating in Iceland.
