Reel in your travel experience in Iceland by embarking on a sea angling adventure from Reykjavík’s harbour. If you want to enjoy the spectacular views of Faxaflói Bay, armed with a fishing rod in your hand, this is the excursion for you.
Your tour begins in Ægisgarður at the Old Harbour of Iceland’s capital, conveniently located right in the city centre. There, you will meet with your friendly, local guide, and prepare to set sail to the bay of Faxaflói, the primary source of nourishment to the inhabitants of Reykjavík since its establishment.
The views in these waters include Mt. Esja, Viðey Island, Kollafjörður Bay, the Akranes peninsula, and even the summit of Snæfellsjökull Glacier on clear days. See the Reykjavík shoreline lull past you on your boat ride, as you gear up and set the bait, casting your fishing rod into the deep blue of the Atlantic Ocean.
The fish most commonly caught in these waters are cod, haddock, catfish and pollock. If you are an experienced angler, you are in for a treat, and even if you don’t possess a background in fishing or angling, you are sure to enjoy your fantastic surroundings while trying your luck in Iceland’s oldest, most essential sport.
Your experienced guides will provide you with all the help you might need in throwing your line in the water, as well as answering all questions you might have of the nature and wildlife you will encounter on your journey. Many seabirds feed in the area, so if you are an avid bird watcher, don’t forget your camera.
As the boat gets ready to return you to the docks, your guides will make use of the cooking facilities onboard and allow you to taste the catch of the day. Enjoy the fresh cuisine with the rest of your travel companions, before making your way back to the harbour and enjoying the rest of your day in the city centre of Reykjavík.
