Whale Watching Hauganes

- Sea Angling

Whale Watching Hauganes is Iceland's oldest whale watching tour operator, based in the heart of Eyjafjörður fjord from where the whales are usually just a few minutes away. We always see humpback whales in our tours but also minke whales, harbour porpoises and dolphins. With some luck you can see orca whales (killer whales) and blue whales.  

We operate two classic Icelandic oak boats that are both spacious and extremely stable in the still fjord of Eyjafjörður fjord which is well sheltered from the open North Atlantic Ocean. Inluded in our Whale Watching & Sea Angling tours you can enjoy sea angling at the end of the tour where you can take the filleted fish with you to enjoy later on.  

All our tours are carbon neutral as we plant one tree for each tour and blend the oil with bio-diesel made locally from frying oils from local restaurants.  

Also in Hauganes you will find a lovely restaurant, Baccalá Bar, a campsite, and the extremely popular hot tubs down by the black beach of Sandvík. You will find the unique beer spas just 5 minutes north from us, the only one of their kind in North Europe.

Sea angling at the end of the tour. Tour duration: 2,5 - 3 hours. Included: warm overalls (are also flotations suits), fishing rods, coffee and hot chocolate and pastries.
