Escape to the Highlands on a one-, two- or three-day angling adventure and explore the hidden waters nestling within the vast, uninhabited centre of Iceland.

Fish for truly wild brown trout and Arctic char in the purest mountain lakes and streams amidst the untouched wilderness.

Once inaccessible to all but a few, this region is traversed by gravel roads which only open during the summer months. Your personal guide will transport you by four-wheel-drive vehicle across the black sands and lava fields, past bizarre volcanic landforms, through unbridged rivers and geothermal areas, deep into the interior.

If you are an angler with a sense of adventure then this tour will tick all the boxes: exciting fishing in remote, awesome locations for beautiful brown trout and hardfighting Arctic char weighing up to 8lbs (3.5kgs).

Floating lines and small black flies are vital although it's good to have slow sinking lines for use in deeper water. A special selection of Icelandic trout flies can be provided if requested in advance.

Self-catering accommodation is included in traditional huts and basic lodges. Longer trips available.
