Hauganes lies next to Árskógssandur, and is part of the Árskógsströnd coastal area. It is also the most southerly community in the district of Dalvík, with a population of about 140. As with its neighbour, Árskógssandur, life in this village is mostly concerned with fishing and fish processing. In this small but attractive community you can combine the luxury of experiencing a country atmosphere with the convenience of being within easy reach of larger towns; Akureyri is only a 20 minute drive away, and 10 minutes will take you into Dalvík, which is the main service centre for the area.

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.
