Natural History Museums · Dolphin & Whale Watching · Thermal Spas
The popular town of Husavik not only boasts some of Iceland's best whale-watching opportunities but is arguably the northeast coast's prettiest town. Overlooking the Greenland Sea, the location is prime for whale spotting, with over 95 percent of whale-watching trips claiming that guests catch sight of the great mammals. Away from the water, colorful wooden houses dot the streets, contrasting with the white snow-capped mountains that form Husavik's backdrop. This charming harbor town also plays home to a number of historical buildings and interesting museums. Make the most of your holiday in Husavik by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Iceland day trip planner.
