Tour Details

This fly fishing day tour will let you experience the Highlands that are indeed the heart of Iceland. With its incredible beauty and epic scenery, the Highlands offer you an experience, unlike any other. Here you can truly become one with nature as the Highlands are untouched and inhabited by men.

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, you find the trout and the arctic char – peacefully cruising the gin-clear streams of the Highlands as it has done from the Ice age. The experience cannot be put into words – it 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 12 km (16 miles) beat, one can find beautiful waterfalls, vast 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 well as the big brown trout.

River Tungnaá is gin-clear spring water flowing into beautiful micro canyons area along with traditional fast and slow running pools, filled with big Arctic char. This smallish, south Iceland Highland trout stream 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. Both Fly Fishing and Spin Fishing is permitted in the South East Highland lakes.
