Volcano Fishing - General Information

Volcano Fishing Adventures, this trip has it all! Starting with the great lakes of the South East Highlands, ever so popular with Icelanders, you will get the opportunity to fish in various lakes, such as Frostastadavatn and Volcano Lake just to name a few. These lakes are mostly inhabited by arctic char and brown trout, which are found in great numbers in these lakes. Whether or not you love to fish or prefer to go hiking and sightseeing, you will not be disappointed by the environment which is both diverse and breathtaking. The black sands, craters, lava, moss, crystal clear lakes and streams interspersed with muddy, reddish-brown glacial lakes and giant waterfalls are truly a sight to see. The trip will conclude with an unforgettable thermal swim in the hot spring stream in Landmannalaugar.
