FROM 115,000 ISK

The Highlands are truly the heart of Iceland. With its unparalleled beauty and epic scenery, offering you a fishing experience unlike any other. Here you can truly become one with nature as the Highlands are untouched by man. The vast wilderness – mountains, deserts, canyons, lakes and rivers – demonstrates the powerful forces of fire and ice which have shaped the landscape on this volcanic island over centuries. Amidst all of this beauty, there is the trout and the arctic char – peacefully cruising the clear streams of the Highlands like they have done for thousands of years. Join FISH PARTNER for an experience that is hard to put into words – and has to be lived!

Fishermen will fish either river Kaldakvísl or river Tungnaá. The river Kaldakvísl is truly a hidden gem. Fished only by a select few, Kaldakvísl has now been made exclusively available only to the customers of Fish Partner. Diversity and contrasts are the river’s main characteristics. On the 12km beat, one can find beautiful waterfalls, great canyons, fast water, slow water, rocks, sand and so much more. The river is full of arctic char, their size averaging at 3-4 lbs, although char weighing up to 7 lbs can be found there, as can big brown trout.

River Tungnaá is a clear spring flowing into this beautiful micro-canyons area along with fast and slow running pools, filled with big Arctic Char. This smaller stream in the Southern Highlands of Iceland is probably one of the best-kept trout secrets in global angling. It is a technical river where stealth, among other attributes, is needed. The quarry is native brown trout and monster chars. They are on average 2-5 pounds, with the monsters ranging to 10 pounds.

Don’t miss this chance to experience one of Icelands (and the world’s best fishing) spots. Let Fish Partner show you the best.
