Frequently Asked Questions

About Fishing Tours in Iceland

Fishing tours include both sea-angling and fly-fishing excursions. Iceland has fertile lakes, rivers, fjords and seas, allowing you to catch many species, including trout, char and salmon. Many of these tours will allow you to cook your catch, or invite you to a place where it can be cooked for you.

1. What fishing gear should I bring to Iceland?

You are free to bring whatever equipment you feel you might need, but be aware that it must be disinfected at the airport. Waders are an essential piece of kit in Iceland for getting to those tricky spots off the river banks.

The best option is to purchase a fishing card, known as a Veiðikortid. This allows you access to 35 lakes across the country.
