Salka Whale Watching

Husavik whale watching.

At Salka whale watching we offer whale watching tours on beautiful oak boats.

Come and enjoy your self at sea. Take in the stunning landscape and get the chance to see whales, puffins, and birds in their natural surroundings. Our most popular tour is the whales and puffins tour. We sail off to puffin island where you can see thousands of puffins nesting, then we head to traditional whale watching areas at Skjalfandi bay.

Our captains have years of experience as fishermen and whale watching captains and our guides have excellent knowledge of the local wildlife. Breath in the fresh air and let our very capable staff take good care of you.

We are open from 23rd of April to 9th October.

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.
