Fishing in the Icelandic mountains
A unforgettable 7 days fishing trip in the highlands

In this trip you get to go fishing in the heart of Iceland, the highlands. The stillness in the wild is like nowhere else and the fishing spots are terrific and diverse.

Guests will be picked up at the airport and will be taken care of during the whole trip. After a sightseeing tour in Reykjavik we head to Hveragerđi and Selfoss, where the first night is spent.

A meeting will be held at the hotel, where we’ll go over the schedule and the different fishing spots.

The next morning we’ll drive up to the highlands. On the way you’ll see some of Iceland's natural gems.

Fishing will take place in the following rivers and lakes:

Tungnaá and Kaldakvísl. These rivers are known for their big and tasty fish, from 3 to 10 pounds. Very beautiful and tasty Arctic charr is found here, and we will catch a lot of it in the lower and upper areas of both of these rivers. Kaldakvísl is one of the most enjoyable fly-fishing places in Iceland.

Fellsendavatn is known for its beautiful brown trout, which weigh 3-6 pounds. This is a nice small lake with spry fish.

Ţórisvatn is the second largest lake in Iceland, with spectacular landscape. The size of the lake hasn’t had any effect on the fishing. You mostly get brown trout there that weigh up to 1.5-3 pounds. Dramatic surroundings and opposites in nature meet.

Kvíslárveitur is a spectacular large area in the mid-highlands. Glaciers can be seen and there’s a view over impressive mountains. The fishing area is massive and you would have no problem with fishing there and nowhere else for a week. Kvíslárveitur contains brown trout, mostly about 3-4 pounds.

We will fish in the above-mentioned places and a new fishing spot will be tried every day.

We can easily make the trip longer or shorter if wanted.

While you are fishing we can arrange a program for your partner as well. We can offer him/her the Iceland Saga Trip (more information is available farther down on the Tours page) or something else, all according to your wishes. And then maybe end the trip with one or two days together.

Guests may come with their own fly-fishing rod, waders and other gear, but a fishing guide will make special flies for each area. We can provide any gear you may need.
