The Whale Capital of Iceland

Húsavík Cape Hotel is a proud founding member in the Húsavík Whale Capital project along side Gentle Giants, North Sailing, Salka Whale Watching, The Húsavík Whale Museum and Fjallasýn travel company.

Stop whale hunting

Our aim is to protect the whales and marine wildlife of Iceland and demonstrate how we can build a sustainable economy around whales without hunting them. Húsavík is home to 4 whale watching operators, a whale museum and a university research center devoted to the study of whales. It is estimated that study of whales and whale tourism brings 150 jobs to our community.
