The whale watching capital of Iceland

If you like whales, Húsavík is the place to be. This fishing village of 2,300 inhabitants is a perfect tourist spot with impressive views of the Kinnarfjöll mountains across the bay, easy hikes through varied landscape and good trout fishing.

More recently, the town has become well known as the whale watching capital of Europe and many tour boats are available from the harbour.

Don’t miss the Church in Húsavík. Built in 1907, it is said to be the most beautiful wooden church in Iceland.
