Húsavík Walking Tours
In collaboration with local founders, Scandinavia Travel North runs the town walking tours. During the tours, a local guide shows Húsavík’s best spots and some hidden gems, starting from Húsavíkurkirkja, the iconic wooden church built in 1907, and then moving to Skrúðgarðurinn, the attractive town gardens where the bubbling Búðara flanks the winding path and small wooden bridges criss-cross the brook. Other locations visited are the area of the oldest house ever built in Iceland, by Swedish explorer Garðar Svavarssonin winter 870, and a panoramic viewpoint over the harbour, heart of the town in the past which even nowadays, in a different way, is the core of the local community. While walking, history, culture and folklore emerge, unusual local tales and fun facts are told. The walking tours are often combined with other activities, such as museums visit, hiking and relaxing in the thermal spa.
Directly in the centre of Húsavík, Scandinavia Travel North is impossible to miss, being located in the big white building across the street from the whale watching ticket offices.
