The harbor of Husavik, Iceland, in the evening light. Húsavík is a small town in the municipality of Norðurþing in the north of Iceland on the east coast of the Skjálfandi bay. Húsavík means something like houses bay, and the name is already centuries old. The Swedish sailor Garðar Svavarsson, after being driven by a storm, died unexpectedly on the land about 875. He went to land, built an accommodation and stayed there for only one winter. He called this place Húsavík (see History of Iceland). There are approximately 2200 people (2013) in Húsavík. The income of the town comes mainly from fishing and tourism. In particular, watching whales from fishing boats on the high seas is an attraction. There is also a small amount of light industry. Húsavík has a wooden church, built in 1907, and according to many Icelanders it is the most beautiful wooden church in Iceland.
