Go fishing in the Westfjords, and finish up your day with a two-course meal at a fantastic local restaurant. This tour should not be missed by avid anglers looking to enjoy one of Iceland’s least visited regions.
This tour begins in Bíldudalur; many visitors to this area will at least pass through here, as it is close to incredible attractions such as the Látrabjarg birdwatching cliffs and Dynjandi waterfall. Here, you will meet your guides, who have all your fishing gear waiting for you on the docked boat.
As soon as your group has boarded, you’ll depart from the harbour into one of the glorious fjords in the region. The waters of the Westfjords are bountiful with fish, so you will only need to travel for fifteen minutes to reach your angling destination.
Once there, you can cast off, and enjoy the amazing surrounding landscapes, of beautiful mountains and glistening ocean. You are also likely to see diverse wildlife, particularly regarding seabirds; many species nest in the surrounding cliffs, including puffins from May to September.
Although there is no guarantee, you may also see some marine mammals. Seals frequent the waters, as do species such as Humpback Whales, Harbour Porpoises and White-Beaked Dolphins.
There are many types of fish you may hook up, including cod and haddock. Fishing has been the lifeblood of this region for centuries, so you are almost certain to catch something, allowing for some excellent photo opportunities.
To put the cherry on top of the day, the skipper will prepare for you a delicious meal aboard.
