Birding in Iceland

Saltvik

For the last 20 years we have been organising highland riding tours where we go out for 5-10 days in the magical highlands of Iceland, these tours we operate under the name of RIDING ICELAND www.riding-iceland.com

At Saltvík we offer riding tours at all levels and try our best to make the experience of riding an icelandic horse in the nature of Iceland an unforgettable experience weather you are a experienced rider or a beginner.

We offer simple but nice accommodation in our old farmhouse at Saltvík.

The Museum House in Husavik

On the main floor of the Culture House in Húsavík the new exhibition Man and Nature - 100 years in Þingeyjarsýsla, aims to provide insight into man´s relationship with nature in this region in the period 18250-1950, and the subsistence farming that was practised at that time, so that each farmstead was largely self-sufficient.
The maritime is on the Ground floor. It opened in 2002, in a new pyramidal unit. The exhibition includes a large number of boats, many of them built in Húsavík, as well as Hrafninn (the Raven), a gift from Norway to the community of Húsavík to mark the 1100th anniversary of the settlement of Iceland in 1974.
The exhibition also includes a wide variety of fishing gear, equipment and tools whcich were used in the fisheries, as well as in seal-hunting and shark-fishing. Films can be viewed.
