Fishing tour in Torshavn
Join a Faroese fisherman along the Streymoy coast for an authentic Faroese experience
This is the perfect tour if you’d like to try your hand at fishing while enjoying amazing panoramic scenery. The trip departs from Argir, and goes around Nólsoyarfjørður, between Tórshavn and Nolsoy Island.
There are several good fishing areas to choose from, dependant on wind direction and ocean currents. You will typically catch cod, haddock and maybe pollock.
We think there is really nothing more serene than standing on deck, waiting for a fish to bite while enjoying the far-reaching scenic views and fresh sea air. You will enjoy the views of the capital of the Faroe Islands - Tórshavn, Nolsoy island and beyond.
You may even be lucky enough to spot some seals and porpoises. During the trip you will be served a light snack with tea and coffee.
Once we have reeled in our catch (a maximum of 40kg per person), we will head back to harbour. This trip can accommodate a maximum of 3 passengers, who will join the captain on a small typical Faroese fishing boat. There are no luxuries on-board but we can guarantee you’ll have an authentic experience.
Your tour guide and captain grew up locally and knows these fishing grounds like the back of his hand.
Please note, fishing in the Faroe Islands is always in the hands of the weather, currents and tides.
To maximise safety and the possibility of a good catch, the captain always takes these into consideration. Therefore departure times will vary.
Please check availability by choosing a date. The meeting point from Argir is indicated in the the pictures of the tour. We look forward to sharing this unique experience with you.
