Experience something truly Icelandic with this fantastic and traditional Icelandic fishing trip, voyaging out into Faxaflói Bay on the boat, Saga. This is the perfect tour opportunity for both experienced and beginner fishermen, as well as those travellers looking to take a boat tour on Faxaflói Bay.

You will be sailing on fertile fishing grounds, where you'll set out to hook the "Catch of the Day", then have it prepared for you on board into a delicious authentic seafood dish. You can hardly find something that is more Icelandic than that!

First, you will stop by an island within Faxaflói Bay known for its colony of nesting Puffins. Faxaflói Bay is the home of one of the largest puffin colonies in Iceland, so you'll be surrounded by these colourful birds, including other species such Guillemots and Skuas.

When it comes down to the fishing segment of this tour, you will have the opportunity to catch cod, haddock and rockfish, among others. Once you have reeled in your catch, you will head back to the harbour and get ready to taste the pan-fried catch.

Thanks to the size of the vessel, this tour will only take a maximum of 14 passengers, ensuring guests have the best seats, service and viewpoints. The crew will provide binoculars, fishing gear and protective clothing, though it is recommended to wear weather appropriate clothing.

Saga is a charming old Icelandic fishing boat that was built from oak in 1970. Saga has been prepped with the latest safety equipment, fully stocked with fishing equipment and has been modified to make her cosy and comfortable for passengers.

So what are you waiting for? Hurry now and you too can experience the delights of fishing, birdwatching and boating on the picturesque Faxaflói Bay. Check availability by choosing a date.
