Trout life

The most common freshwater fish in Iceland is the good old brown trout. If you see a lake in Iceland you can be pretty sure that a few brownies reside under surface.

But not all brown trout are created equal. In a few lakes in the country the trout can grow up to enormous sizes and one of the lakes that has the most monster sized fish caught each year is Lake Þingvallavatn.


A record trout , estimated 15-17kg. Released unharmed.

We have access to one of the best beats in the lake for the chance to catch the big ones. Last summer a trout weighing over 30 pounds was caught on our beat. That is the largest trout from the lake in recent times.  Many more are waiting in the depth of the lake.  Will you catch a larger one?
