Husavik

4.4
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.

Where to stay in Husavik

The many visitors that flock to Husavik can choose from a wide range of accommodation options. Hotels and guesthouses tend to be located near the harbor, providing picturesque views and proximity to much of the city's activity. Cottages and campgrounds lie in the outskirts and are often more economical, particularly for large groups or those planning a lengthy stay. These more rural lodgings also have the advantage of being just a stone’s throw away from hiking paths and other outdoor adventures.
