Cod to Bacalao
Iceland has a great history of fishing and processing fish, we in Hauganes are no exception. First you will sail out into the Eyjafjörður bay which opens into the North Atlantic, on our traditional oak boat and go Sea Angling. There you will most defenitely catch a large Cod which you can take with you to the shore. The guides at Whales will tell you all about fishing in the current and older times. When we come back to shore, our neighbours at Ektafiskur will greet you and show you around their bacalao producing facilities. Making salted cod / Bacalao used to be a huge industry for export in Iceland and existed in practically every town around the country, however today they are one of the few producers of bacalao left in North Iceland. So what happened? Find out a few more interesting things, see how the process works; from fishing the codfish up from the north Atlantic ocean, to the moment – months later – when we ship the finished product to Italy or Spain – or on your dish in their restaurant .
After the tour you will enjoy a delicious meal at the renowned restaurant Baccalá bar in Hauganes.
