The light house of Húsavík stands north of the town on the edge of the cliff about 49m above sea-level. The tower was build in 1965 and measures 12m in height. The great view over the Atlantic Ocean to the north make it an ideal location for everyone hunting the perfect sunset shot. Sometimes whales can be seen from the cliff.

The cliff below the light house is a popular breeding ground for all kinds of seabirds. Bird-lovers get the chance to get close to them and observe them while hoovering above the sea.

In 2018 the GeoSea sea bath opened right next to the light house and guests can enjoy the view from the cliff while soaking in mineral rich water.
