Grab your tackle with this exciting angling tour fishing the rivers and lakes of Iceland. This is the perfect opportunity for beginners to the sport, as well as those passionate and experienced anglers looking to bag a new catch!

You will first be picked up from your accommodation in Iceland's capital city, Reykjavík, before being driven to a river or lake within an hour's drive. In the designated fishing spots, participants are allowed to partake in fishing with fly rods, bait fishing and spinning.

Upon arriving at the river or lake, your experienced fishing guide will give you a rundown on the location, as well as provide some handy tips for catching your first fish. In Iceland's river systems, the most common type of catch is Brown Trout and Arctic Char; your guides will know the best spots and methods for catching these tricky species, so make sure to listen hard to the advice given.

Your guide will also provide all of the necessary equipment, thus making your tour that much easier. It is permitted to bring fishing gear into the country if you are planning on partaking in lots of angling in Iceland, but the equipment must first be sanitised. This can be done at extra cost at Keflavík International Airport.

When you're finally kitted out, it's time for the activity of the day; fishing! Fishermen from across the world over will tell you that half of the experience is the solitude and quietude of the surrounding nature; in that vein, there can be no better country on earth as Iceland. Whilst waiting for a bite, you can revel in the gorgeous surrounding countryside, the distant mountains and the lush hillsides. 

Don't miss out on your chance to reel in the catch of the day with this fabulous tour fishing the lakes and rivers of Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.
