There are two stand out fisheries in Iceland when it comes to brown trout and Arctic char: The southern Highlands and Laxardal on the North coast. The first explores to fascinating rivers that flow through the Icelandic central plateau and are a haven for big aggressive brown trout along with a huge population of large char.

The second is perhaps the country’s premiere dry fly and nymph fishery for large brown trout. Both are unique and in stark contrast to one another, the Highlands being desolately beautiful flowing through rocky gorges and waterfalls in an almost Luna like landscape, the second flows gently from lake Myvatn through green grass fields with trout sipping midges along the edges.

If you are looking for a dynamic trout and char experience in Iceland this year then we have managed to secure two interlocking dates in the prime time of early July so you can experience both fisheries from the 4 – 11 July. You will fish the Highlands from the 4 – 7 July before a private transfer will then take you north directly to Laxardal to then fish from 8 – 11 July.

Tuesday 4th July: Transfer to the Highlands Lodge and start fishing.

Wednesday 5th to Friday 7th July: Three full days fishing the Tungnaá and Kaldakvisl rivers.
