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 ratingBetter than in Husavik The tour was really good. We saw 3 different types of whales. We were also able to spot a group of 3 humpbacks. A few days before we did a whale watching tour in Husavik, but we just saw one humpback.

5 star ratingOnce in a lifetime experience It is one thing to go whale watching, but it is completely another if you go whale watching with the most amazing and kind crew of Whale Watching Hauganes. Our Captain Arni and guide Adalsteinn provided for a great experience. The trip was informative, entertaining and very chilled. It took us only few minutes before we saw a minke whale and then we headed straight to huge humpback whales. There were only two this time of the year, but what a show they had prepared for us! They came straight to our boat only few meters away and started their show - flowing beneath us and breaching, jumping several times. After the whale watching we went to do some fishing/angling. We’ve managed to catch huge cods which were filleted for us by the captain straight away. Most amazing dinner.

I would highly recommend Whale Watching Hauganes to anyone in the Eyjafjodur fjord area and thank them for the half-day at sea.

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.

What a week we have had here in beautiful Hauganes. There have been so many whales close to our harbor, for example blue whale, sei whale, many humpback whales, minke whales and harbor porpoises. Look forward to see what will be waiting for us tomorrow!
