Hauganes A unique experience

Hauganes is a part of the Árskógsströnd coastal area. It is also the most southerly community in the municipality of Dalvikurbyggd, with a population of about 140. Life in the village is mostly concerned with fishing and fish processing. In this small but attractive community, you can combine luxury with the surrounding country atmosphere.

In Hauganes you will find the oldest whale watching company in Iceland with over 27 years of experience in the area. There you will also find a very popular and unique restaurant, Baccalá Bar, where you can get great selection of different dishes. We especially recommend either the deep-fried bacalao with fries or the bacalao-pizza.

You will find a very nice camping area in the heart of the village and the hot tubs by the sea in Sandvikurfjara have become very popular amongst guests that visit Hauganes.

If you like hiking, it is strongly recommended to hike up to Þorvaldsdalur Valley. There you will get to experience the stillness, safety, and a spectacular view.

Hauganes is spectacular every season.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
