Town walk, local stories and a warm bath.
With a local guide.
During the tour, 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 Svavarsson in 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. This walking tour is the perfect starting point in one’s trip to Húsavík, which may continue in one of the 3 town museums.
The tour might end in the area where the GeoSea baths are located, on a beautiful spot on the cliff, with a stunning view of the bay, for a relaxing experience after the walk.
