Arnarvatnsheidi- hiking and fishing paradise

Arnarvatnsheidi for brown trout and char fishing in Iceland

The Arnarvatnsheii is a huge moorland with lakes, streams and rivers that provide fabulous trout fishing and is framed with a stunning panorama of mountain ranges and glaciers with the most notable one being the Eiríksjökull glacier.

Weighted nymphs are extremely popular in these lakes and streams and in recent years, when conditions allow, dry flies are often used by many anglers. Some of the lakes are only accessible on foot or by modified 4WD. The lakes, rivers and streams are full of good size Arctic Charas well as brown trout.

If you are up to some walking you can be rewarded with very good fishing in special spots that very few anglers  get to fish. There are also many spots that have easy access as well.

The accommodation is very basic and consists mainly of huts which are comfortable with cooking facilities and kitchen equipment plus a sitting room, beds, WC and shower. The fishing huts vary in size and can accommodate 4, 7 or up to 15 people.


Season: 20th of June until 30th of August
