Application form for fishing


The trout beats of Laxa in Adaldalur are considered amongst the best brown trout fishing areas available in Iceland, some would even say world-class brown trout fishing.

There are four famous beats just below the hydraulic dam at Bru. The beat names are Hraun, Stadartorfa, Mulatorfa and Presthvammur. All these beats offer great dry fly fishing, a lot of space to move around and explore, diversity in water and pools, beautiful mountain and country scenery along with amazing birdlife.

Availability can be found at the Hraun beat and at a very reasonable price.

The average catch for the 8 rods in the short three summer months is approximately 1,000 brown trout and some char as well at the Presthvammur beat. A common weight is 2-4 pounds and not uncommon to catch 6-8 pounders and trout as big as 10 pounds have occasionally been caught.

There are several options in accommodation in the nearby farms and they offer sleeping bag bedrooms or with madeup linen beds, breakfast, lunch, lunch packs and dinner, if requested.
