Travel to Iceland after 15 June 2020

Iceland's borders have remained open to other EU and Schengen states throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, under the condition that passengers quarantine for 14 days upon arrival. From 15 June passengers can opt for a COVID-19 test upon arrival, as an alternative to quarantine. The cost of this is ISK 15,000 and unless arriving after 5pm passengers should receive the result the same day.

Passengers are required to fill out a pre-registration form (on before departure to Iceland, which requires passengers to provide their personal details and contact information, flight information, travel dates and address(es) during their stay in Iceland.

Passengers are also encouraged to download and use the COVID-19 app Rakning C-19. The app contains important information on COVID-19 and how to contact the health care service in Iceland.

The pre-registration form provides passengers with information on the conditions for entry into Iceland. Passengers can choose to be tested by a PCR-test for COVID-19 on arrival or self-quarantine for two weeks. At this time, the Icelandic health authorities cannot accept proof of test results.

At the time of writing there is a 14 day self-isolation rule in place when returning to the UK although many seem to think this may not last or that countries with low infection rates may be exempt. If you have already booked a fishing trip to Iceland with us then rest assured that we are monitoring the situation and will contact you when the travel situation is clearer for your specific dates.

There are likely to be some last-minute salmon fishing opportunities available in Iceland. We suggest that people wait for now until travel restrictions are clearer and flight availability is more certain. If you would like to be notified of fishing availability in Iceland in due course, please do register your interest at
