Sea-Angling Grundarfjordur with Stop at a Puffin Island

First we head out for the nearby island, Melrakkaey, a nature reserve where many birds nest, such as puffins, shags, cormorants, kittiwakes and more. We sail close to the cliffs to get the best view and to photograph these beautiful ocean birds.

Fun for the Whole Family

Then we move into deeper waters for some sea-angling. Each passenger is given a fishing rod to try to hook a fish or two and for this, all necessary fishing equipment is provided. It is all action and excitement on board as the thrill of the chase is felt with passengers trying to catch a big one. This fishing tour is perfectly suited both for experienced fishermen and also for guests who do not have any experience yet.
