Húsavík.com was founded in 1998 by Friðrik Sigurðsson as a portal for local business, services and tourism. Around the same time, Örlygur Hnefill Örlygsson started writing his first news websites in Húsavík. In 2010, Örlygur founded the local English language news website myHúsavík.com. The two sites have now merged into this new portal for news, services and local interest, as well as information for travelers. We welcome you to the Húsavík Observer – your source for News from the Edge of the Arctic.
