Trophy Trout Adventure

April - October Daily About 8 hours Reykjavík with pick up included Easy

It’s a perfect day, we start by picking you up from your hotel or guesthouse in Reykjavík at 9am sharp, then we’ll make the short journey to Lake Thingvallavatn,  the largest lake in Iceland, located only 40 minutes from the city. It is also the home of the ice age brown trout.

The giant brown trout of Þingvallavatn has evolved there in isolation since the last ice age. This legendary fish is the most coveted catch of many a fisherman, Icelandic or otherwise. Tales of battling these mighty fish are akin to fairy tales and are never forgotten by those lucky enough to play a part in them. These extraordinary brown trout can grow to a weight of over 30 lbs, and specimens in excess of 20 lbs are frequently caught in peak fishing times. In Þingvallavatn, you never know what the next cast will bring.
