Come and experience sea angling in Iceland with your own local guide. We offer exciting, quality boat tours from Stykkishólmur, which is located on the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Our boats are typical Icelandic fishing boats and therefore especially suitable for fishing, and general sightseeing on the wide Breiðarfjörður Bay. 

The fish we catch is usually cod or pollock, but there is also halibut, ocean perch, haddock and many more. The captain is an experienced local fisherman and knows all the right fishing spots so you can be sure to catch some fish.

This tour is suitable for everyone, no age limit and no experience required. We have all the equipment you need for fishing. We got good quality fishing rods so you will feel like a real pro and we will teach you how to handle the rod, and assist you throughout the journey.

During the tour there is a real good chance to see puffins and many other seabirds. You can also enjoy the beautiful view of the islands and mountains, and if you are lucky, you might see minke whales and dolphins that frequent the area. 

The fishing tour takes about 2 hours, the fishing spots are very close to town, so we don't have to spend much time in sailing. We only take a limited number of people on for each departure just so everyone can get the best possible service as possible. We put ambition in offering excellent personal service for everyone.

After the tour the captain will fillet the fish for you so you can take the catch with you to cook if you have access to a kitchen. Some of the restaurants in town can take the fish and prepare it for you for a reasonable price, but it is necessary for you to check availability before.

Our ticket office is in a small cabin at the harbour, it is good to be there about 15-20 min before. It is always better to bring warm clothes, weather can change quickly in Iceland especially on the ocean.
