We will go sea angling and and you’ll catch your own fish for dinner from the Faxaflói Bay in the Atlantic Ocean. Just breathing in the fresh air and being out in the open ocean makes it an experience you’ll never forget. Once back on land, our chef will prepare the catch and explain why Icelanders believe that they have the best tasting fish in the world. In addition, you’ll learn about the locally grown herbs and spices, local vegetables and the local food specialties. The preparation of fish in Iceland has evolved from simple boiled cod and potatoes smothered in butter to world-class gourmet cuisine.

In the late afternoon, we visit a local Reykjavík fish specialty store and restaurant called Fylgifiskar – directly translated as “Follow that Fish”. The chef will show us how to properly prepare and cook the fish you just caught, and afterwards, you’ll get to taste the best fish ever to come out of the sea – guaranteed! After dinner, we head to the world-famous Blue Lagoon, a pool of geothermal water in a moss-covered lava field dating back to 1226, to relax and to share fishing stories.
