Today is August 1st. The Icelandic tourism season is at its peak point. Currently there‘s a mind-blowing 22 degrees celcius in Húsavík (for locals that‘s extremely warm) and the town is therefore very much alive. June was quite cold in Húsavík and the first part of July as well. The number of tourists have matched expectation for most parts though. The whale watching season in Húsavík have been very successful whith a usual sightings of humpack whales, blue whales, minke whales, white beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises, the killer whale has also been spotted on a more regular occasion than usual.
The Húsavík Whale Museum is open every day in August from 8:30-18:30. Tickets can now be bought via our webpage.
