Húsavík is a haven for whale watching enthusiasts, boasting the highest sighting rate in Iceland. The thriving ecosystem, nourished by melting snow and mineral-rich currents, teems with plankton and fish, attracting baleen whales aplenty. After a day out on the bay, you can enjoy our museums, bathing in the warm geothermal waters and explore the town and sourroundings on one of many tours available, on foot, bike or horseback.
