The design of the traditional Faroese boat allows for hands-on activities and learning. This is especially true for the children on board. You can sit in the stern of the boat by the rudder and stear the boat, or you can controll the outboard engine. You come close to nature and observe marinelife and birds. If you reach out your hand, you can touch the sea.

From the Árnafjørður marina you sail south. There are several good fishing areas. You can fish in the area close by the “Bergið” or you may sail accross the fiords and fish closer to the “Lisshøvdi”. When you have reached the fishing grounds, the outboard engine is turned off, and you cast your fishing line. You may be in luck to catch several species of fish including Atlantic cod, haddock, whiting, redfish, ling, saithe and plaice.

If you are unfamiliar with fishing, do not worry. Sea-angling is very easy to learn and fun too!

On the tour you will sail close by the seashore, where you can see gorges and grottoes. The moment may call for a story.

Fishing with your family builds unforgettable memories!
