Whale Watching Hauganes


Be the first to review

Whale Watching Hauganes is the oldest whale watching tour operator in Iceland based just 25 minute drive north from Akureyri. You will enjoy a fantastic scenery, birdlife, and of course the diverse range of whale species of Eyjafjordur. Commonly, we see Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, Harbour Porpoise, and White Beaked Dolphins. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of a Killer Whale or a Blue Whale! Enjoy a little sea angling on the return trip and have your catch filleted to take with you. In 2017 we had a 100% success rate of spotting whales and expect no less this year! With our carbon neutral program, a cooperative effort with our local authorities, we neutralize the carbon emissions we create through our special Whale Forest forestry plan. Also, our oak boats run partially on biodiesel made from recycled cooking oil from local restaurants. Our guests can therefore be assure that by traveling with Whale Watching Hauganes they minimize their carbon footprint.
