Icelandic sea waters teem with fish, and waters surrounding the capital city are no exception. You shouldn't worry about previous fishing experience—special sea angling tours promise a pretty good catch for every angler, including beginner. Most often they are rewarded with cod, haddock, halibut, pollock, and rockfish. Fresh fish is barbecued for you right on the board. However, you can also take it away if you wish to boast about your catch in front of friends.

Sea angling trips are seasonal, and start in mid-April or more often in May and are available until the end of September. Boats set off from Reykjavik's Old Harbor, and head out to Faxaflói Bay. Fishing equipment and protective clothing are provided. Kids under seven have free entrance.
