Reel in your excitement and join this sea angling tour setting out from the heart of Iceland's charming capital. No matter if you are a first-timer or an experienced angler, this fishing tour is fun for everyone and a fantastic addition to your Iceland adventure.
Since the harbour is conveniently located right in the centre of the capital, your tour begins on location, where you will meet up with your local and friendly guides at Vesturbugt harbour, next to the VIKIN maritime museum at Grandagarður.
Travel by a traditional oak boat into the magnificent bay of Faxaflói. As you set out to the open seas, you will be taken to the best fishing grounds the bay has to offer and get briefed on the best inside-techniques of catching the multitude of fish that reside in these scenic waters.
Onboard, you’ll be provided with all the fishing equipment needed, such as rod and bait, as well as a protective clothing if needed. Then, there is nothing left for you to do but cast your line and hope the fish will bite!
The species most commonly caught in these waters are catfish, cod, haddock, mackerel and pollock. Of course, what you catch is yours to keep, meaning you might just get a great meal out of the tour. As an added bonus, the crew will panfry a taste of your catch on board, paired with some potatoes and homemade sauce!
The scenery visible from the deck is also astounding, consisting of majestic mountains and idyllic islands, as well as a scenic coastal view of the city of Reykjavík, and if your lucky, you may even get a chance to see some Puffins (May-August)! Breathe in the fresh ocean air and revitalise your spirits, as you try your luck in reeling your catch of the day.
