TROPHY TROUT ADVENTURE ✩✩✩
We offer 5-day fishing tours with accommodation at our great self catering lodges. The lodges are located at Lake Thingvellir and provide a magnificent view over the lake. The four self-catering lodges are new and comfortable. Equipped with kitchenette and made-up beds, they add a touch of comfort to the fishing trip.
The species is called the mighty “Ice Age” brown trout (Salmo trutta). This brown trout is rather different to other brown trout due to its unique habitats in Lake Thingvallavatn. Its beautiful silver spring coat and his abnormal size make it a true rarity. The average weight of these monsters is approx. 3-4 kg but they can easily grow up to weigh 12 kg. In the spring 2013 many 20-pounders where landed, as well as some even heavier ones.

Clothing: In spite of the relatively mild climate, you should bring warm clothing and, most importantly, quality rainwear and a windcheater. Please check out the average temperature table here below. Chest waders and wading shoes. Nicer clothes to wear for dinner.
Tackle disinfection: Iceland has always been free of diseases like UDN and Gyrodactylus salaris and we intend to keep it that way. There is a strict policy of visiting anglers having their tackle sterilized before coming to Iceland. This should be done in a 2% formaldehyde solution for 10 minutes and performed by a veterinary surgeon. (Tackle sterilized in Virkon S is also acceptable.) A signed inventory of what has been sterilized should be provided by the vet for presentation to the customs officers at Keflavik airport. The most important items to be treated are: rods, reel/line, waders and flies.
The process can be carried out by staff at Keflavik airport. The office is located at the far side of the baggage reclaim hall, downstairs in the airport. Just notify one of the personnel in the area that you need your tackle disinfected and they will have a member of the staff come and complete the process. The price for one fishing set is 3.500 ISK
