Interesting places and scenery near Fosshotel Húsavík, North Iceland

Whale watching and the GeoSea

The best whale-watching in Iceland can be found at the pleasant fishing village of Húsavík (population 2,200), nestled on the shore of Skjálfandi Bay. The bay itself is rich in plankton, attracting around 24 species of whale including the famous orca (killer whale), humpback whale, minke whale and blue whale. Observing these awe-inspiring creatures in the land of the midnight sun is an experience you won’t soon forget. A visit to the Húsavík GeoSea is another unforgettable experience. The water is warm and inviting, steam rises up to blend with the skyline and as you relax in the pool you can enjoy the magnificent mountains and ocean all around.

Dettifoss - Europe’s largest waterfall

Another jewel in the crown of the Jökulsárgljúfur canyon is this colossal waterfall, with its intimidating 44m drop and thunderous volume of water that can be seen from several kilometres away – look out for the clouds of spray. Impressive at any time of year, the full impact of Dettifoss is most keenly experienced during spring, after the seasonal melt. If you get the feeling you might have spotted this famous fall before, it featured in the opening scene of Ridley Scott’s 2012 Aliens prequel, Prometheus.

The Ásbyrgi canyon

The enormous horseshoe-shaped Ásbyrgi depression, ringed by sheer cliff drops and carpeted in green forest, is one of the best hiking destinations in Iceland. Located at the northern entrance to the Jökulsárgljúfur river canyon, Ásbyrgi offers hours of wondrous walks and a magical atmosphere that lends itself well to the local legends about the place. According to Norse mythology, the rock formation is the hoofprint of Odin’s eight-legged horse, while other stories say Ásbyrgi is the capital city of the Huldufólk, or elves as they are more widely known.
