What to Expect
Enjoy a 3- to 3.5-hour sea angling tour from Reykjavik and breathe the salty air of the fishing grounds of Faxaflói. A must for first timers and experienced anglers alike, you will be joining in a fantastic Icelandic tradition.

The fishing grounds in Faxaflói have attracted Icelandic fishermen for centuries, and the captains of these tours know the area like salty sea dogs. They will take you to the best spots for catfish, cod, haddock, mackerel and pollack.

And what you catch, you get to keep! At the end you can barbecue your catch on board, fresh and without fuss, or take it to a MAR restaurant to enjoy a fully cooked meal prepared by the chefs (extra charge).

Just breathing in the fresh air, being out on the open ocean, and catching your first fish of the day makes this an experience you’ll never forget. All equipment is provided, and there is no need to worry about your sea skills, as the captain and guide will teach you the best fishing moves, if you don't know them already.
