Going sea angling in Iceland from Reykjavik harbor with the whole family is a great experience!
My cousin Kjartan Ólafsson is the owner and captain of the Christina, which sails from Reykjavik harbor, near Harpan Concert-house. We took my son and his girlfriend, they are visiting from Denmark - along with her mother and father from Poland - her sister and husband ( living in UK but he is from South Afrika!) and their two daughters ( age 7 and 3) my mother ( age 76 ! icelandic and living in Reykjavik) along with my stepfather ( age 77 and still going strong - very icelandic) + my sisters daughter (age 15). This very international family of all ages had a totally great afternoon.
After catching one fish after another, they were grilled onboard by the crew member ( from Spain!) We also had some 10 cods home with us for my freezer, along with some delicacies from my cousin ( salted and dried cod heads and bacalao)
So remember when you visit Reykjavik next time, go fishing in the Faxaflói Bay :)
The handsome one with the beard is my son, pure icelandic, made in Denmark, working at PWC in Copenhagen. Who said accountants didn't have fun :)
Enjoy your summer,
best wishes from Sigrun - on summer holiday and missing Snorrastofa.is
