Welcome to a hotel in the heat of Europe’s whale-watching capital – Húsavik. The hotel is comfortable and situated within walking distance of the harbour. It has a top class restaurant with whale theme and spacious rooms of high standard.
A hotel in the heart of Húsavik
Fosshotel Húsavik is the perfect choice for visitors looking to have a whale of a time. The hotel is situated in the heart of Europe’s whale-watching capital, within comfortable walking distance to the harbour with its renowned whale-watching tours. Whales also feature prominently within the hotel itself, including in the on-site restaurant Moby Dick, which serves local dishes of local ingredients for both lunch and dinner. Be sure to try the reindeer burger!
At Fosshotel Húsavik you enter an environment characterised by its use of dark wood and tasteful splashes of colour in the decor. Everything here is at a high level and, like the open northern part of Iceland, the hotel feels airy and spacious, both in its common areas and in the rooms.
If you choose to stay here, you will not just be close to the whales in the ocean outside, but to a lot of other sights as well. Northern Iceland has attracted attention for its unique volcanic and lunar landscape, making it the perfect filming location for media productions such as Game of Thrones and Interstellar. Perhaps not surprising given its bubbling mud pools, epic waterfalls, snow-capped mountain tops and the general lack of human intervention.
