Sea Trout & Arctic Char

(mid-June – late October, 2 – 3 days): from £345 per person per day, including fishing and luxury ensuite accommodation

trout fish food cultureWe are pleased to offer fishing for trout and arctic char on the Grenlækur river in south Iceland (around three hours’ drive from Reykjavík), with luxury accommodation available in a guesthouse on a family-run farm. From mid-June to late July, there are primarily brown trout and arctic char in the river.  From late July to late October, sea trout arrive too. Four rods are allowed on the river at any one time and the daily catch is two trout per rod. All arctic char must be released. The owners of the land believe it is important that the number of trout in the river follows the natural cycle and the fish breed naturally, so they do not stock the Grenlækur with fry.
