TROUT FISHING IN THE HIGHLANDS

Day 1.

After you arrive in Iceland we take you to the accomodation in Reykjavík.  In the afternoon we check out the local fishing shops in case you need (or want) to stock up on some gear.

Day 2 – 4.

We drive from Reykjavik into the highlands where we will be staying for the next 3 nights.  We stay in a mountain hut among the mountains of the dramatic Icelandic highlands.  In the next 3 days we fish in at least four different lakes, in surreal surroundings, including an explotion crater and a lavafield.  Close by it is possible to relax in a natural geothermal spring after a long day of fishing.  These lakes have brown trout and arctic char.

Day 5.

Today we drive out of the highlands towards Thingvallavatn lake.  This is the second largest lake in Iceland and is famous for its unique brown trout that can grow to be 25 punds.  The lake also has arctic char.  We fish in Thingvallavatn until the afternoon when we drive back to the accomodation in Reykjavik.

Day 6.

Today we head out to the Reykjanes peninsula to fish in Kleifarvatn lake.  This is like fishing on the moon.  The surroundings are truly surreal and unique.

Day 7.

A free day in Reykjavik.  It is also possible to fish in Elliðavatn lake, 15 minutes from the city centre.  Elliðavatn is often referred to as the fly fishing university of Iceland.

Day 8.

Departure from Iceland.
