Salkawhalewatching

Husavik whale watching.

At Salka whale watching we offer whale watching tours on a beautiful oak boat.

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 were 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.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
