Iceland Whale watching Tours

– Whale watching in Iceland. Whale Watching Hauganes offers daily scheduled whale watching tours from Eyjafjordur, 25 min drive north of Akureyri in North Iceland.

– Best location to experience the whales in their natural habitat.

Whale Watching Hauganes is extremely proud of being the oldest whale watching Iceland company. We have toured with travelers on whale watching since 1993. Northern Iceland is globally recognized as the best location to experience whales in the world. See the Humpback whales, white beaked dolphins and minke whales.

Our two classic oak boats have been renovated for your comfort, have enjoyed good maintenance, are spacious, comfortable and extremely stable. As there are no generators on board, the engines can be turned off when approaching the whales making the approach as gentle and non-intrusive as possible.

We are proud to announce that our collaboration with our neighbour Ektafiskur /  Baccalá bar has been selected as a HERO experience by the North Iceland Marketing Agency.

We look forward to seeing you!

5 star ratingFirst week of November, 2019 The sun was out, the wind was light, the sea was relatively calm. It was -7C/20F, so the exposure suits they provided were a necessity. That said, the suits kept us warm and toasty. We watched 10-12 Humpback Whales surface numerous times over the course of 1.5 hours. Hot chocolate, tea and coffee with pastries were provided midway through the trip. Great whale pics and videos that I will post when I get home. We had whales within 50 feet of the boat on several occasions. Great shot of Ginger's tail as she started a dive. Made a short stop on the way back and got to fish for cod. Caught 3 and almost everyone who fished caught at least 1. Be sure to get a picture of your party by the life sized picture of a Humpback on the wall outside headquarters.

Fantastic Location!

Whale Watching Hauganes is located on the west side in the middle of Eyjafjordur bay, only 25 min drive from Akureyri and 12 minutes from Dalvik, where the ferry goes to Grimsey Island. Usually it only takes us a couple of minutes to sail to the whales because they are just in front of our little village in North Iceland.

Whales in the sun

Beautiful day in Eyjafjörður. The weather was perfect, blue sky, calm sea and sunny, We started the tour by looking at a lot of harbor proposes.  Then we saw a whale comin up from at the surface, a humpback whale! What a day to be on the water.
