About Iceland

Iceland is a land of fascinating extremes. Barren peaks, jagged through unrelenting erosion, new volcanic evidence of the turmoil beneath the thin crust of the earth, desert landscapes of black lava flows.

Underneath these high glacial plateaus, lush green fields and valleys through which flow the greatest international collection of first class salmon rivers in the world.

The prime salmon season in Iceland is quite short; generally the earliest rivers start to fish in late June and by September it is all over. The rivers of the south west benefit from the Gulf Stream currents and offer substantial runs of fish, predominantly grilse. To the north and east, in the lee of the island and therefore colder than the south, the rivers see a much higher percentage of multi-sea winter fish and fish over twenty pounds are taken every year on most rivers.

Comfortable lodges, expert guides and wonderfully reliable fishing mean that Iceland has to be at the top of every salmon fishers wish list.
