Family holiday in Iceland


Are you planning a family holiday and would like to combine it with fishing?

In a short driving distance from Reykjavik we have a nice and family friendly river, Leira river, with a cosy cottage standing on the riverbank, perfect for families.

Leira river is a two rod river and quite easy to fish, suitable for beginners as well as more experienced anglers. Leira river is a fly only river and all fish must be released. It is about 4 km long with 24 named pools.

It is self catering, you can get all necessities close by in Borganes town or Akranes town, as well as there is only 40 min drive to Reykjavik. The first day you go over the river with your guide who will point out the best spots of the river and answer all your questions.

The area around Leira river is beautiful and without driving far from it, you can find some nice places to try and to explore, for example:

  • Thingvellir (the old Icelandic parlament)
  • Gullfoss waterfall
  • Geysir hotspring
  • Deildartunguhver hotspring
  • Esja mountain
  • Glymur waterfall
  • Reykholt (cultural center)
  • Horseback riding
  • Glanni waterfall
  • Paradísarlaut
  • Víðgelmir “The Cave”
  • Krosslaug (natural geothermal pool)
  • Snowmobile tours on Langjokull glacier
  • Hraunfossar waterfall
  • Many great hiking trails
  • Snorkeling
  • Buggy Rides
  • ... and more!

And last but not least, not to mention the price. The price is similar to a hotel room on the capital area, but there you don’t have fishing included!
