We welcome you to visit our little fishing village and our fish factory. We have an interesting history which is entwined with the fish industry history in Iceland. Making salted cod used to be a huge industry for export and existed in practically every town in Iceland, however today we are one of the few producers of salted cod left in North Iceland. So what happened?
First you will sail out into the Eyjafjörður bay which opens into the North Atlantic, with our good friends and neighbours at Whales Hauganesi 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 you arrive back on shore, we welcome you to join us on a tour around our facilities. 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 our restaurant.
The host Elvar Reykjalin – is a natural stand-up comedian and will guide you through the tour in a memorable way.
Those brave enough could join “The Rotten Shark club of Hauganes” – by tasting fermented shark, washing it down with a special brew. We’re happy to say we have thousands of brave members from all over the world who all have received a verification card!
Please contact us, either by email or telephone: +354 466 1016 for prices and further information.
We look forward to welcoming you in Hauganes!
