Join an authentic fishing experience departing from Árnafjørður fjord. You sail in a traditional Faroese boat – the utmost of Faroese handicraft. The Faroese boat was a lifeline to the people that settled the beautiful villages you see along the coastline. With this boat type people discovered rich fishing grounds. Now you can follow in their footsteps.

You sail out from the Árnafjørður marina and follow the eastern seashore by Mjóvin. The fiord Árnafjørður is about 4 nautical miles and the high surrounding mountains shelter against north-westerly winds. Sailing close to the shore you see the varied landscapes with ravines and grottoes. Keep your eyes open to seals as they have this area as their natural habitat. Up on the steep slopes we see the semi-wild grazing sheep. 

You will the head to Bergsmunnin and see the view east towards the island of Svínoy. You sail further along this spectacular coastline towards “Bergið”. Of the coast by Bergið you cast your fishing line! Typical fish in area are Atlantic cod, Haddock and Saithe, but sometimes you may catch Ling, Tusk and Redfish. At a certain location you will try to catch the beautiful “Reyðfiskur” – a variation of the Atlantic Cod that assumes the red colours of its seaweed habitat. Weather permitting you may cross the fiord towards Lishøvdi and cast your line there.

Should you be blessed by mother nature with a catch, you get to take fish with you to prepare for a wonderful meal! Nowhere on the planet can you find fish as tasty and fresh as this! The captain and guide will et you now how to prepare the fish if you decide to take it with you at the end of the trip.
