The Icelandic Seal Centre
The Icelandic Seal Centre & Museum of Hvammstangi, is located on the picturesque Miðfjörður fjord and provides a perfect mid-journey stop between Reykjavik and Akureyri. The centre, which opened its doors to the public in 2005, is devoted to ongoing research, education and the promotion of sustainable tourism in the vicinity of Húnaflói Bay.

Housed in a historical building in the village of Hvammstangi, the Seal Centre multitasks as a museum, research centre and tourist information desk for the area, conveniently located all under one roof. Via its various exhibits, cultural displays, documentaries and even seal folklore, the Seal Centre offers a non-partisan view of seals in Iceland, their role in Icelandic history and present day sustainability issues surrounding this sometimes controversial creature. Seal watching remains, nevertheless, a favourite activity with Icelanders and tourists alike and has been gaining in popularity in recent years.

All information related to the viewing of seals in their natural habitat, whether at sea or on land, is available at the Centre. Offering guided tours by boat or on land, the Centre provides visitors with all the necessary information about how to best see these intriguing creatures without harming their natural habitats, thus insuring the specie's continued survival in and around Icelandic coasts.
