Don't miss out on this hot fishing action with a fantastic Volcano Fishing tour in the great lakes of the south-east Icelandic Highlands. This is a fantastic tour opportunity for those guests looking to experience angling in Iceland combined with some incredible panoramic scenery.

Your day will begin by being picked up from your accommodation in Iceland's capital, Reykjavík before you are driven down the scenic South Coast route toward the highlands. You will be fishing in the sublime Icelandic highlands, known for their kaleidoscopic hillsides, steaming hot pools and the fantastic hiking trails of Landmannalaugar ("The Pools of the People"). 

To begin with, however, you will be focusing on the fishing at Frostastaðavatn, a lake found just nearby to Hekla volcano. This lake is one of the best fishing areas in the highlands, surrounded by incredible views of pink glaciers, rumbling rivers and smooth mountain slopes.

Even if you've never been fishing before, fear not, for your guide will be on hand every step of the way to help you with the process, as well as offering tips and providing all of the necessary fishing equipment. 

You will be fishing primarily for Brown Trout and Arctic Char, two of the most common fish species in Iceland. A variety of techniques may be required to ensure a catch, from patient waiting on the riverside to fully wading into the water. 

At the very end of your trip, you will conclude your experience with an unforgettable swim in one of the hot pools that makes Landmannalaugar so famous! When you have soaked to satisfaction, you will begin to make the return journey back to Reykjavík.

So don't delay any longer! Hurry now and you too can try your hand at some volcanic fishing in the gorgeous Icelandic highlands. Check availability by choosing a date.
