The Battle Hill Lodge season is well underway in Iceland with excellent reports from returning sea trout anglers. We are delighted to be able to offer a last minute special offer for a week at the lodge in October 2023. It’s a great opportunity to explore the wonderfully varied fishery during a great period for large sea trout.

Battle Hill Lodge, Iceland

The Battle Hill fishery is based around three rivers: the Vatnamot, Fossálar and the recently added Geirlandsá river, all of which are tributaries of the large glacial river, the Skaftá. The Vatnamot is a large junction where all the rivers meet, almost like an estuary. Wide and ever changing, the area is famous for giant sea trout. 20lb plus fish are landed here every year. As well as sea trout, you’ll find healthy numbers of arctic char and salmon. All the sea trout that run in the tributaries of the mighty Skaftá stop in Vatnamót before going in their home rivers. The bottom mostly consists of sand and is ever-changing, so the fish move around. When fishing Vatnamót you must be prepared to look for likely pools and runs and fish them accordingly.

To fish all these rivers you will be based form Battle Hill Lodge, a recently renovated farmhouse on a historic farm in the South East of Iceland. Updated with a clean style and modern amenities, the lodge can sleep up to ten fishermen in four twin rooms and two single rooms spread out over two floors, with two and a half bathrooms. The lodge is located approximately 3 ½ hours drive from Reykjavik along the southern coast road. While staying here you will have a chance to unwind and enjoy the peaceful solitude with stunning views.
