Trophy Trout Adventure – General Information
This trip is all about big Brown Trout and big Arctic Char. Lake Thingvallavatn is the largest lake in Iceland, located only 40 minutes from Reykjavík. Thingvellir, where the Althingi, the Icelandic parliament was established around the year 930, is a place of historic significance. The lake lies along the North Atlantic Ridge, sitting where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates separate from each other. It is also the home of the ice-age brown trout and 4 distinct morphs of Arctic Char
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.
This day tour offers a unique chance to catch a giant brown trout and stunning Arctic Char in one of Fish Partner’s exclusive beats in Lake Thingvallavatn, as well as the smaller lakes Villingavatn and Úlfljótsvatn that are part of the Thingvallavatn system
