During the tour, a local guide shows Húsavík’s best spots and some hidden gems, starting by the harbour area, then to Húsavíkurkirkja, the iconic wooden church built in 1907. We continue to Skrúðgarðurinn, the attractive town gardens where the bubbling Búðará flanks the winding path and small wooden bridges criss-cross the brook. Other locations visited are the area of the oldest house ever built in Iceland, by Swedish explorer Garðar Svavarsson in winter 870, and a panoramic viewpoint over the harbour, heart of the town in the past which even nowadays, in a different way, is the core of the local community. While walking, history, culture and folklore emerge, unusual local tales and fun facts are told. Return to the ship at leisure on own.
