Itinerary for Sea trout fishing
Anglers are picked up at their hotel in Reykjavik around 11:00. When fishing up north, anglers take a domestic flight to Akureyri where their guide meets them. When fishing down on the south coast, our guides meet clients at their hotel and take them to the river. Anglers stop for lunch on the way and start fishing in the afternoon.
Day 2 and 3
Early breakfast and a full day of fishing. Anglers go back to their lodge for lunch and a short nap. Fishing usually ends at 22:00 when anglers go back to the lodge for dinner.
After breakfast, anglers fish until noon then head back to Reykjavik.
Most anglers choose to spend a night before and after their fishing tour in Reykjavik. We can arrange all hotel accommodation and sightseeing if anglers choose to stay longer in Iceland.
