Lake Thingvallavatn in the National Park of Iceland have Brown Trout of size that it is hard to believe ... every year there are numbers of Brown Trout of sizes as big as 10 - 28 pounds landed , they call them the Ice Age Brownies .. and they are caught from bank and on fly !  These Brownies must be some of the biggest in the world , best time to come is when the ice is just off the lake and the Brownies are hungry and hunting , timing is April , may and early june ... it is very exciting and unforgetable memories seeing huge groups of Brownies of this size passing by when you are fishing ,  splashes like fresh salmon , you hook ten of them and if you are lucky you will land one!  Arni arnibald@lax-a,is

StoraLaxa_2.jpg

The Stora Laxa is by far I believe the most beautiful river in Iceland. Located only 1 hour from the capital you find the big salmon river in beautiful surroundings. The beat 4 is my favorite and probably the most beautiful beat of the river, definately the most challenging one. The river flows through rocky canyons as well as the plains, you will see both fast flowing pools as well as calm ones. What I think is one of the most fascinating about this beat is the walking as some good pools are in the canyons, this is a good challenge to test your skills to the limit.

Over the past years East Ranga has been on the top 3 list in Iceland over the best salmon fishing rivers in Iceland. There are few facts keeping her on the top, the catches are outstanding, you can both fish live bait, spinning and fly fish, and it´s all the same fun, the lodge, the food, the service, everything so delicate and nice.  One thing not everybody know of is the hidden fact that in early July, the big fish enter the river system in numbers, and they agressively attack the fly, giving you an outstanding battle lasting a whole day even!!  But if they ecscape, they have so many pools to hide in and they don´t allow anyone to find them. Why not jump start the season and have a go for the big ones, we have available dates early July and we can offer good value for the fishing.

Little Middalsa in West Iceland is a „petit “beauty. The river runs through a lush valley with farms on each side, but if you venture further upstream you find yourself alone in the world in a remote valley with nothing but the birds and a few sheep to keep you company.

The Icelandic Yule Lads bear little similarity to the world-famous Santa Claus, who is descended from St. Nicholas, patron saint of children and sailors. In contrast, the Icelandic Yule Lads are descended from trolls and their original role was to strike fear in the hearts of children. As it happens, they are the sons of two of the most hideous ogres ever known in Iceland, Grýla and Leppalúði.
