What people are saying:

There is a beautiful bay town in northeast Iceland called Husavik. It is one of the best whale watching places in Europe and is known as the "European Whale Watching Capital". Iceland in summer is the peak season for whale watching. Looking forward to a close encounter with the giant whale.

    No cost- just a donation!

    I stopped in to see what this was about. It's interesting because the museum covers all areas of exploration from the Vikings to space exploration. Wide amount of information in a small building.

    Donation as entry fee so worth a visit as a point of interest

    Since it was donation based entry my wife and I went, and the exhibition upstairs about polar expeditions was actually surprisingly both informative and well presented. The other elements were a bit m...
