Ektafiskur

We welcome you to visit our little fishing village and our fish factory. We have an interesting history which is entwined with the fish industry history in Iceland. Making salted cod used to be a huge industry for export and existed in practically every town in Iceland, however today we are one of the few producers of salted cod left in North Iceland. So what happened?

We welcome you to join us on a tour around our facilities. Find out a few more interesting things, see how the process works; from fishing the codfish up from the north Atlantic ocean, to the moment - months later - when we ship the finished product to Italy or Spain - or on your dish in our restaurant.

The host Elvar Reykjalin - is a natural stand-up comedian and will guide you through the tour in a memorable way.

Those brave enough could join "The Rotten Shark club of Hauganes" - by tasting fermented shark, washing it down with a special brew. We're happy to say we have thousands of brave members from all over the world who all have received a verification card!

The Ektafiskur Experience tour is open for groups, 8 people or more at a time of your convenience but must be booked at least 2 days in advance via telephone: +354 466 1016.

Please contact us, either by email or telephone: +354 466 1016 for prices and further information.

We look forward to welcoming your people!

In the harbour of Dalvík, at its southern end, is a little wooden bridge over the rock dam and offers access to a beautiful black sandy beach that invites to take a walk until you reach the delta of the river Svarfaðardalsá. Take a rest in the dunes and observe the rich birdlife.

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.
