Húsavík Original Whale Watching and Sails

Get close to the whales on board a traditional Icelandic sailboat and learn the old ways of sailing.

Discover the magic of the ocean in this beautiful sailing on board our authentic Icelandic schooners. This tour gives you a great opportunity to enjoy the wildlife — the whales and birds of Skjálfandi bay — while discovering your inner sailor. Take part in a real sailing adventure and learn from our experienced crew!


  • Hot chocolate, cinnamon buns and “the captain’s privilege”.


  • Expert in whales, birds and sailing.

Extra clothes

  • Warm overalls and raincoats if needed.

On the return trip, we all helped raise the sails to get back. Nothing like sailing in the North Atlantic in complete silence, the only sound is the boat moving through the water.
