Hauganes lies next to Árskógssandur, and is part of the Árskógsströnd coastal area. It is also the most southerly community in the district of Dalvík, with a population of about 140. As with its neighbour, Árskógssandur, life in this village is mostly concerned with fishing and fish processing. In this small but attractive community you can combine the luxury of experiencing a country atmosphere with the convenience of being within easy reach of larger towns; Akureyri is only a 20 minute drive away, and 10 minutes will take you into Dalvík, which is the main service centre for the area.
