The first inhabitant of Husavik, and indeed of Iceland, is said to have been a Swede by the name of Garth Svavarsson. Having circumnavigated Iceland in 870, he spent the winter in the bay here and called it House Bay – Husavik. The following Spring he returned to Norway, leaving behind one of his men - “Night Traveller” – remembered in the name of the bay - Nattfaravik - in the Mountains of Kinn, opposite Husavik.

Husavik today
Husavik was amalgamated with the rural council of Reykjahrepp in June 2003 and has since been known as Husavikurb'r. Total inhabitants number just under 2,500 people. Husavikurb'r has developed into a popular destination for tourists, with around 80,000 visitors a year. A third of these guests come from overseas and most of them come in small groups rather than large organised or package tours. One of the biggest attractions is, of course, whale-watching and Husavik has frequently been called the “Whale-watching capital of Europe”. Around 28,000 visitors a year sail on Skajalfanda Bay to see whales in their natural surroundings
