Húsavík at the heart of the Diamond Circle

Husavik is a small town in the north of Iceland, inhabited by little more than 2300 people. It sits by the shores of Skjálfandi bay, home of some of the largest whales in the World.

Despite its small population, Húsavík has in the last twenty-five years gained popularity as the best place in Europe to go Whale Watching.

Húsavík is also home to the Exploration Museum and a monument to the training of the Apollo astronauts near the town during the 1960s.

Husavik is perfectly located if you want to visit some of the fascinating sights near by, for example Lake Myvatn, Dettifoss waterfall or Ásbyrgi canyon, just to name a few. If you are interested in photography, Husavik is a place where you will find many interesting spots, both in the town and around it.
