The Arnarvatnsheidi is framed with a stunning panorama of mountain ranges and glaciers. The trail to Arnarvatnsheidi leads from the upper reaches of the Borgarfjördur region through a great lava field called Hallmundarhraun into the moor lands. The tracks are rough and require 4WD vehicles. Most of the arctic char weight from 0,5 to 2,5 kg, while brown trout are most commonly weighting in at 1 to 3 kg.

River Litlaa Trout & Char

Litlaa in Kelduhverfi is one of the most productive trout rivers of Iceland. The abnormally high water temperature of approximately 12°C is derived from the combination of a warm source and cold water from a lake, joining to produce the superb water qualities that supports what is arguably the best stocked sea trout river in Iceland. The river also has a fine stock of stationary brown trout and arctic char. There is also a good chance to catch a salmon later on in the season. The Litlaa river allows "Fly fishing only" and "Catch and release" policies. River Litlaa is divided into 6 areas and the entire riverbank is accessible to the limited number of 5 daily rods at any one time. There is no fishing lodge at the riverside but many farmers in the vicinity offer self catering lodges and lodges where full service is provided. SEE MORE
