Whale Watching Hauganes

Whale Watching Hauganes is Iceland's oldest whale watching tour operator, based in the heart ofEyjafjörður 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.

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.
