Icelandic Sea Fishing from Reykjavik

1. Icelandic Sea Fishing from Reykjavik

Make the catch of a lifetime on a sea angling adventure perfect for all ages. Head out on a great boat and find the best troves of cold water fish including cod, halibut, haddock, rockfish, and pollock. Setting off from Reykjavik's Old Harbor, you will head out to Faxaflói Bay, where your experienced guide knows exactly where to angle for the best catch. Along the way, you'll be treated to spectacular Icelandic ocean views, and often guests will spot puffins hanging out on their "puffin island." And even if you've never been out sea angling before, your expert fishing team will help you learn the ropes quickly so you'll be reeling in the fish in no time! Whatever you catch on your 2.5-3 hours on the water can be barbecued right after. Sink your teeth into your reward! If you want to show off your catch to friends and family back home, you can also arrange a special flight case, which lets you bring your catch away from the special tour. Fishing in Iceland is a memory that will last a lifetime, and whether you're a professional fisherman or it's your first time out on the seas, it's a day filled with fun, beauty, and the chance to eat some tasty fish!

What people are saying about Capital Region of Iceland

Had a great 3 hour trip with my wife and kids out of Reykjavik harbour onboard the Rosin. The crew were very helpful, accommodating and professional. First few fishing spots did not yield many fish but by the last location we had so many cod we turned back to harbour. Lovely grilled fish on the journey back which was eaten below deck with potatoes. Mostly cod were caught along with some pollack, haddock and a whiting. My wife and I had wanted to bring some cod away to cook that night as we were camping and were handed a bag of 8 fillets of prime cod as we left. Lovely conclusion to a wonderful trip in Iceland. My only suggestion would be they invest in some new fishing rods as many had missing tips, make sure you grab a good one and check the reel drag is not loose. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend booking a few hours out on this boat.

We booked this tour because my 6 year old wanted to go. Neither I, nor my two sons had ever been fishing before, so it was a first for us. The guides were friendly and informative, the rods were easy to use and the techniques was easy to pick up, everyone was catching fish quickly! The captain prepared the fish on board as they were caught, and the grilled fish and potato salad was just divine! The vessel is small and has no toilet, so ladies, pee before you go and have a coffee AFTERWARDS. Men, be prepared to freedom wee if required!

In wonderful weather we fished successfully and had a lot of fun and at the end deliciously prepared fish and potatoes!

Spectacular experience that I recommend, caught a lot of fish with beautiful photos and finally a great meal.

Really great time fishing! Well managed trip and great for all levels of sea anglers.
