Húsavík´s number one location to buy traditional Icelandic crafts is right next to the Whale Museum. Kaðlín, directly below the museum is a great place to buy presents during your stay.

Floor to ceiling with home-made goodies, it’s a lovely spot not only for gifts, but also for things to enjoy while you’re here. If it´s winter, an Icelandic jumper and socks may well be a necessary addition to your wardrobe. There is even the option of ordering custom made Icelandic sweaters where one can choose the pattern and colour. Or if you´re looking to taste the local produce, they have a fantastic selection of home-made jams and teas utilising the local herbs and berries. Everything is 100% handmade by locals.

The actual opening hours can be found here.
