GREETINGS FROM THE WHALE-WATCHING CAPITAL OF ICELAND

Tucked away on the northern coast of Iceland along the picturesque shores of Skjálfandi Bay is Husavik—a small fishing community that has garnered a well-deserved reputation as one of the best whale-watching destinations in the world.

Over 23 different species of whale have been recorded in Icelandic waters, with the most common visitors to Skjálfandi Bay being humpbacks, minke, and blue. Blue whales are especially impressive to behold. Known as the largest animal on Earth, a blue whale’s tongue alone can weigh more than an elephant.

While Husavik is best known for whales that swim freely throughout its waters, there’s more to see and do here on Iceland cruises. Visit the Exploration Museum—a facility dedicated to intrepid adventurers who came before you. Or, relax in a geothermal spring south of town.

Being a fishing town, Husavik is also the perfect place to enjoy fresh, local seafood. Be sure to try Fiskisúpa (fish soup) during your visit, and, if you’re feeling adventurous, Hákarl—a traditional Icelandic treat made from fermented shark.
