Iceland is a country with a strong connection to the sea and the bounty that it can provide and given that is is difficult to grow crops in the country its unsurprising that their lives revolved around the Ocean.
Today you can recapture a little slice of that history and join us on the high seas in an old fashioned oak boat as we attempt to catch some fish in Reykjavik’s Faxa Bay.
Traditional Oak Boat
BBQ on board
The old harbour is one of the key defining areas of Reykjavik, housing a number of surprises for both tourists and locals to enjoy. Here you will find the Harpa concert hall which has regular musical performances and plays, the Kolaportið indoor flea market which can house a treasure trove of Reykjavik’s past and of course the harbour itself which is home to a number of boats from commercial to military.
Our day of fishing and sea angling begins with either pick up via our fast and efficient pick up service or by you making your way to the Elding office at the Reykjavik old harbour. There you will be able to trade in your pre-paid voucher for your ticket onto the boat.
On this small group tour set on a traditional oak boat, we will take you to the best fishing grounds the bay offers, teach you the best techniques while sharing our experience and personal insights. On board you'll get the all the necessary fishing equipment as well as protective clothing.
In the summer months (May-August) we make a stop at the 'Puffin island' and have a look at the amazing birdlife of the bay. As an added bonus, the crew will barbecue your catch on board, complimented with some potatoes and homemade sauce, and if you catch a lot, you may even keep the rest!
The most commonly caught fish in the area is Catfish, Cod, Haddock, Mackerel and Pollack. Read more about the most common catches here.
The most commonly caught fish is catfish, cod, haddock, mackerel and pollack and of course what you catch, you can keep. Even though our success rate is very high, the tours are run in wild nature and therefore we can never guarantee a catch on a particular tour.
