Join this fantastic sea angling tour off the coasts of the Westfjords and you too can experience the most authentic of all Icelandic experiences—fishing! This is the perfect experience for passionate anglers, and for those looking to appreciate the diverse landscapes of the Westfjords for an ocean-vantage point. 

All around Arnarfjörður in the Westfjords, you can find rich fishing grounds, perfect for the aspiring angler. Beginning at the village harbour in Bíldudalur, you will cruise out into the ocean for approximately 10 to 15 minutes, or until the captain has found the right spot. Typically, the sea angling tour sets off in the morning hours or in the evening. This is because these times boast the best conditions for fishing.

There are a number of fish species abundant in the Icelandic waters. You will almost certainly have the opportunity to catch Atlantic Cod, Haddock and Trout, among other species. Whatever you hook will make a fine meal as the boat captain begins to make preparations for cooking the catch of the day.

The tour is approximately 1-2 hours. Other departure times can, of course, be arranged and tailored to your requirements, though this must be organised in advance alongside your reservation. If you're not looking to partake in the fishing segment of the tour, you are always free to relax on the boat, soaking up the incredible landscapes of the southern side of the Westfjords. 

The boat in question is recently modified, very stable and equipped with rods and angles. If you have any question regarding fishing tips, the Westfjords or other fun activities in the area, your captain will be on hand the whole way. With that in mind, there should be no reason not to make a catch!

Hurry now and you too can experience the joys of fishing off the picturesque Westfjords. Check the availability by choosing a date.
