From April to October, the city of Húsavík turns into heaven for whale lovers—the coastal area is so full of them. Whales are drawn by fish and so every self-respecting tourist is there to see the miracle. Get a boat and sail into this new exciting adventure.

Be grateful that you are still able to see these amazing animals in their natural habitat since they were endangered due to the active hunting that took place in the area for hundreds of years. Fortunately for both whales and tourists, the cruelty stopped and this great attraction emerged. In addition to this, if you are really excited about whales, visit Húsavík's whale museum. No doubt, it is one of the few whale capitals on Earth!

Other whale-watching locations around Iceland include Akureyri, Hauganes, Ólafsvík, and Reykjavík.
