Husavík today

Posted on March 7, 2010 by

Today Húsavík is a pleasant village of 1200 inhabitants, standing in front of the Skjálfandi bay, with the typical coloured houses. Two buildings stand out among the others: these used to be the manors of local authorities, and according to the tradition, they had to be black, because they had to be visible to seamen clearly visible in the middle of the white winter snow.
In Husavík there are a few interesting museums, among whom the Museum of Whales, the Musuem of Husavík and the Museum of Phallus.
From the local Harbour, boats sail out to the open sea to see whales, among whom, if you’re lucky, you may catch sight of the blue whale, the world’s biggest mammal.
