On the shores of Skjálfandi bay, north coast of Iceland, lies Húsavík, a small town with about 2,000 inhabitants. Due to the different species of whales that enter the bay, it is considered one of the country’s whale watching centres, thus benefiting tourism, which together with fishing and small industry (silica export), are the town’s main economic activities.
Once in the town centre, near the harbour, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Húsavík Whale Museum, as well as the Exploration Museum, which portrays the history of human exploration, from the Viking explorers to the Apollo astronauts. Live cam streaming on Webcamtaxi will show you panoramic views of this small town.
If you are travelling to Iceland, you can hire a car in advance and pick it up at the Húsavík Airport that serves this town.
