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!

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.

Great Weather in Hauganes!

Great Weather in Hauganes!

What a day! We had amazing weather in our beautiful fjord where the sun was shining and the sky was clear. The sea was calm and there were 2 humpback whales only 20 minutes away from Hauganes port. We got to spend a good time with them where one was very friendly and came up close to the boat. It was a good day for Whale watching.
