Húsar (Danish: Husum) is a village on the East side of Kalsoy, Faroe Islands.

It is the oldest of the villages on Kalsoy. The church, which is made of stone, was built in 1920.

Húsar is connected to Klaksvík by a ferry that visits the village three times a day. From Húsar the other villages on the island can be reached by bus.

Húsar is also involved in fish farming, particularly the production of fry. The fry is grown for 1½ to 2 years. After that it is placed in sea farms where it will grow into fish. Húsar also has a cutler who produces exquisite handmade knives for whale slaughtering.
