Fishing for Ice Age brown trout

Fishing for Ice Age brown trout

Iceland Outfitters has started collaboration with ION Fishing, who offer two private beats in Lake Thingvellir which are among the best in the world for big brown trouts. The "Ice age brown trout" as it is sometimes called, can grow up to extreme sizes for a fresh water fish, every year trout up to 30 pounds are being caught there, that is some of the worlds biggest brown trout.

The combination of the serene atmosphere, the crystal clear lake situated in an otherworldly landscape of breathtaking lava rock formations, volcanoes in the distance, great fishing opportunities, raw natural beauty and it being a short driving distance from Reykjavík the capital of Iceland makes Thingvellir National Park an optimal place to visit for those who want to see, smell, and feel something new and entirely different.

For the wholesome experience we recommend anglers stay at ION Hotel or other customized lodging arrangements are available upon request (cottages, guesthouses or hotels).

Lake Thingvellir is perfect for day tours as well as longer tours and is suitable for beginners, experienced anglers and everything in between. All tours are custom made to each angler.
