Sightseeing:

The town of Húsavík sits below Húsavíkurfjall mountain on the eastern shore of Skjálfandi bay. Just above the town is lake Botnsvatn, a popular place for outings. The lake is just the right size for a nice hike around it. The lakes surroundings are rich in vegetation and bird life and trout is said to be abundant, though small.

Tours Excursions Transportation:

The first organised whale watching excursions in Iceland started from here in 1995. Since then, whale watching has become a major attraction and Húsavík continues to be the leading destination for whale watching. In addition to the tours, a fascinating whale museum is located right by the harbour.

Passengers can stroll around Húsavík Church regarded by many Icelanders to be the most beautiful wooden church in the country. It was built in 1906-1907 in the shape of a cross and has a 26mtr high steeple over the entrance.

Further afield tours are available to Lake Mývatn through Laxárdalur and Laxárgljúfurcanyon whilst approximately 45 minutes drive to the southwest is Godafoss.
