Lake Fellsendavatn

The lake is located about 170 km from Reykjavik, about 19 km from the Hrauneyjar Highland Centre. This is the first lake you encounter when driving towards the Veiðivötn lake cluster, located a little further inland. Access to the lake is quite good and you can drive almost all the way to the lake. We advise caution though as cars have become stuck on the sand beach. The best part of the lake is the north coast, but walking along the east coast can also yield great results. The fish can be big at this lake. Really big.
Evenings and night fishing usually yield the best results but on windy days, casting into the wind has also proved very effective.
Best flies tend to be streamers imitating the local bait fish(stickle back), evening fishing can be fantastic with mice patterns

How to get there

Head east on road 1 until making a left turn on road 30. Follow road 30 for around 50 km until making a right turn on to road 32. Road 32 changes into road F26 when you reach the Highlands. Follow road F26 past the Hrauneyjar Highland Centre. When you’ve passed the Highland Centre, road F26 turns into F228. This road will take you to Lake Fellsendavatn.
