Husavik, in northern Iceland, is the island’s self-appointed capital of whale watching. Visitors will find a museum dedicated to the mammoth marine creature, and there are two excellent operators that run offshore tours during the warmer months of the year (from April to October). Considered one of the best places in the world to see pods of humpbacks plying the waters, Husavik is also an important research station for biologists studying the communication patterns of whales. Should you not be able to make it all the way to Husavik, whale watching tours also operate from Reykjavik and the Snæfellsnes Peninsula.
