  • Very nice place. Nice cars, very friendly owner. Also the car 'graveyard' is worth a visit!
  • Jul. 2004 A fantastic and delightful collection road worthy restored classics inhouse as well as derelict cars and trucks of all makes and sizes outside. Many jeeps and land rovers. A lovely owner that can tell you many stories and shed some light on the how and why.
  • Lots (!) of old-timers and car-related stuff. Also very nice owner.

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.
