Where do you find the biggest trout in the world? We would think it must be in Lake Thingvellir on the legendary private ION beat. - Laxa i Dolum27

East Rangá river is one of the most famous salmon river in Iceland. Prime time is August but September is good as well.

Have you ever seen them? It can be pretty spectacular seeing the Northern Lights dancing around the sky. Most common color is green but sometimes they get red and in all colors inbetween.

We have started seeing them in Iceland. Best time is October - March but it is possible to see them August - April.

Do you know the fishing beat? It is a 3 rod junction pool in West Iceland.

Do you ever wonder why everything tastes better when it comes from a picnic basket?

Is it because all our senses are open when we are out in nature or do we just get so hungry after a long day of fishing? What do you think?

Were you able to go fishing this summer? We sure hope you did. In Iceland we were able to go fishing but many could not travel to visit us.

We are so much looking forward to seeing you again next summer. Take care dear friends and stay safe... until it is safe 💕

We LOVE fishing! We also really 💗 visiting volcanos, waterfalls, glaciers, desert and hotsprings, all in the same 2 hours.
How? By taking a helicopter tour from Reykjavik, Iceland.

We are still fishing for seatrout in Iceland but season is aaalmost over, only few days left on several rivers.

This is Varmá river, located only 30 min from Reykjavik. Season is April - October so if you visit us in that time frame, we can take you on a day tour fishing for trout and char.

Let's continue with planning our next adventures, we may need to alter the tour or change the dates, but so be it. It is IMPORTANT to have something to look forward to, right?!

Look at the impressive jaw size of this macho salmon. They sure do not all look the same.

Yes, this place is real! Two beautiful waterfalls come together and you stand right there and watch and catch salmon!

Do you know the name of this river?

trip advisor reviews

Holaa River Arctic Char
Read More
We fished the Holaa River and had a wonderful day. Our guide Sverrir picked us up at our cottage in the morning and drove about 45 minutes to the River. He supplied waders (excellent condition) and fly fishing gear. It was a short walk from the parking area to the River.
The Holaa River has a decent flow, but with a firm gravel bottom so wading was pleasant. Sverrir put us on the fish immediately.
The River holds lots of fish, and we all caught plenty of Arctic Char fishing nymphs with strike indicators. We had 20+ hooks ups, 15 catches, saved 3 for a great dinner. Others who fished the river did not have the success we did, thanks to Sverrir. He provided packed sandwiches, snacks and made some coffee along the bank for us for a mid-day break.
I would definitely do this trip again and would recommend this to anyone, including beginners.
My wife even caught 2 Fish!!!!

Best Outfitter in Iceland!

Harpa and her team are very professional. They communicate well, all guides were on time and very knowledgeable.
We executed 6+ excursions over 4 days + transfers to/from the airport. Every driver and guide we interacted with was friendly, knew the area well + flexible with any and all requests.

I would highly recommend anyone looking to do excursions of any kind to reach out to them first.​

Great 4 days of fly fishing for wild trout

We spent 4 great days on the Icelandic Highlands fly fishing for brown trout and arctic char. We appreciated the personal welcome by Johanna very much.
This is a fantastic destination for fishermen looking for almost untouched surroundings, wild fish and who are happy to stay in a rustic cabin, self catering.
