This is an authentic full day experience. You visit one of the most beautiful areas of the Faroe Islands. Casting a line you have a great chance of catching fish.

You sail out from the marina of Funningsfjørður on Eysturoy. You sail in a traditional Faroese boat – the utmost of Faroese handicraft.
The fiord is surrounded by dramatic landscapes. On the western side of the fiord you sail by the beautiful village of Funningur, located at the foot of the highest mountain of the Faroe Islands, Slættaratindur. To the east you have the picturesque village Elduvík with gorge, "Elduvíksgjógv" that the villagers have used as a natural harbour for centuries. On your tour you may spot birds such as puffins and razorbill and sometimes you may see seals and porpoise.
The locals say that if you have a fishing rod and a pot you will always get by here. Indeed, the fiord is rich in fish. You may cast your fishing line off "Elduvíkslíð ", or you may sail further out the fiord to the cape of "Funningsmúli". Several species of fish may take your bait including Atlantic cod, haddock and redfish.
