Husey (Husavik) Seal Watching

Husey (Husavik) Seal Watching

Take a detour off road 1 onto Hróarstunguvegur, road 925 and head north along the river bank. The road becomes 926 before Húsey farm.  The view is superb and you may encounter reindeer near the farm.

Hundreds of seals often gather at the mouth of the river Jökulsá, where it meets the ocean. The bird life is extremely rich too; red throated divers nest in abundance and the area hosts the world´s largest colony of Arctic skua – avoid getting close to their nests as skuas defend them vigorously!
