Iceland is a country where fishing for salmon runs in people's blood. The country is packed with for the most part very prolific Atlantic Salmon rivers covering the every part of the coastline. An attribute which makes Iceland stand apart from other salmon fishing locations is the clarity of the water. Crystal clear rivers allow anglers to spot, stalk and cast to individual fish adding huge appeal and excitement to the sport.

These fishing conditions make for an altogether different salmon fishing experience requiring different techniques and styles of fishing. The vast array of rivers can make choosing the right location equally confusing however and for that reason it is essential to seek informed advice before booking a trip.


Season runs from mid June-mid September but varies between individual rivers
