    It's a nice little church. Husavik is a middle-size town by Icelandic standards, nice and cute. Aside from the church there are shops, restaurants and museums on the main street.

    This town pool is welcoming and easy to access. Everything is very clean, including changing areas, lockers, showers. We loved the hot tub and luxuriated in it for a long while.

    Spent the better part of an hour here. It is a bit isolated but worth the effort. From the parking area you have a ten minute or so walk to a descent toward the coast. It was later after and the winds were howling so bundle up. There were interesting rock formations and nesting birds among the rock crevices. Smell the sea air. It made it all worthwhile.

    Always a fan of stopping for pictures of lighthouses. Because of the service lighthouses provide, you are almost guaranteed a great view when visiting a lighthouse. This one does not disappoint. Located right next to the new Geothermal Sea Baths, worth taking a minute to appreciate the view of the bay and surrounding area. The lighthouse looks like all of the lighthouses in Iceland, but still standing tall and majestic with this view over the water.

    Unique bar that pays homage to the movie about Eurovision that was filmed in Husavik. The exhibition is not free, but probably recommended if you like Eurovision stuff. There was a lot of Eurovision decor in the bar too, nice terrace and you could not leave this place without a smile in your face.

    This was not listed but check it out on Google Maps which appears to reflect up-to-date opening hours. Summer times are given here. It may well be closed over Winter. It shares the building with the public library.

    Husavik Museum is a gem of a museum, all about Icelandic fishing, predominantly featuring small boat fishing. Lots of artefacts used in the fishing industry. The ground floor houses several fishing boats and some English descriptions. Upstairs more info on the type of fish caught, and how, in English too. For instance, shark bait needs to be the stinkier the better, and it was the least favourite job of the fisherman to bait the line.

    Downstairs there is a drama documentary about early fishermen. It runs on a loop, total running time is about 50 minutes, narration in English and English subtitles. It's a fascinating film if you get a chance to see at least some of it. It seems only a local farmer with beach access or rights is allowed to operate a fishing boat. The film tells the story of a day in the life of fishermen. It begins with the fishermen rowing out early morning, 6 plus Helmsmen. Carefully placing the baited lines out, revealing how the artefacts are used in real life, such as when collecting the fish drawing the lines back in, what they do on the small boat to pass the hours whilst waiting for the fish to bite, to finally putting up sails to sail home, and the capstan to beach the boat.

    It's just up the road from the Wooden Church on the corner. Admission is 1500 isk adult, 1000 senior. Well worth a visit

    Loved the horses, the scenery, and the cozy, friendly atmosphere. The guides are charming, the tolting is fun, and the scenery is beautiful.

    Also, as a solo woman traveler, I felt safe and welcomed.
