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 ratingGreat experience Fantastic! My dream came true today: I finally saw whales in real-life 🙂 After a failed attempt in Argentina a few years ago, I almost lost hope but these guys are very professional, know where to look, mention when and where they see one so you can follow and take photos or video. Face mask mandatory for everyone, which was not a problem because it's also helpful against cold wind. Coffee, hot chocolate and cinammon roles were provided at about 2/3 of the trip, you need to sanitize your hands before grabbing something. We felt warm because of the floating overalls we got to wear and were lucky on the weather. Nice staff. They sell some lovely local, hand-made stuff in the shop. If you join this whale tour you get 10% discount on the food at the nearby restaurant, which has an excellent fish soup. Hauganess is a tiny town but this whale watching tour is well-worth the drive. Not sure how many people can fit max on this boat, today there were about 30. You do not need to print the booking, just tell your name.

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.

The weather was beautiful, nice temperature, calm sea and pink sky that made the view stunning. We had 6 humpback whales in the area around Hauganes. We had a good time with the whales and we got to see one of our friends, Sóley they humpback whale.
