Húsavík

Húsavík is the oldest settlement in Iceland, a charming fishing town located on the north coast. It is famous for its wooden church, Húsavíkurkirkja, and its amazing whale watching opportunities. It is sometimes referred to as 'The Whale Watching Capital of Europe' on account of its plankton rich waters - here you can observe the biggest mammals in the world playing and feeding in the bright clue waters surrounded by mountains.

Please note that we take our responsible tourism policies very seriously. We only work with reputable local whale watching companies and our guides/skippers who lead our kayaking and sailing expeditions are experts in marine life. When we venture into whale territory we are always cautious, these intelligent giants deserve the upmost respect we will only approach them if it is appropriate.
