Fly fishing in Iceland is a dream for those anglers who love to fish for Salmonids. Iceland is famous for its Salmon and Sea-Trout fly fishing and also has substantial Brown Trout, Arctic Char and a unique Sea-Run Char fishery that provide a diverse range of species to fish for on any trip to the region. Surrounded by a beautifully sculptured landscape of glaciers, hot springs, geysers, active volcanoes, portentous peaks and vast lava deserts there are few more scenic places in the world to fly-fish.

Iceland is full of famous Salmon rivers and Fly Odyssey offers you a selection of fantastic waters including the Sela, Big Laxa, Breiddalsa, Jokla, Hofsa, Hrutafjardara and Huseyjarkvisl rivers for your next trip to Iceland. While Iceland is famed for its Salmon fishing it also has outstanding Sea-Trout, Brown Trout and Arctic Char opportunities for those who are keen to explore the region. Fly Odyssey has a selection of the finest Trout and Char rivers including the Minnivallalaker, Tungulaekur, Svarta, Jokla, and Reykjadalsa rivers.
