River Litlaa – Brown Trout & Arctic Char 

River Litlaa is one of the most productive rivers of Iceland. The river has strong population of wild stationary brown trout and arctic char plus sea trout. The abnormally high water temperature of approximately 12°C is derived from the combination of warm natural geothermal sources and the cold water from the lake Skjalftavatn, joining to produce the superb water qualities. The Litlaa river allows “Fly fishing only” and “Catch and release” policies.

The Litlaa river is divided into six fishing sections plus the Skjalftavatn lake and accessible to the limited number of seven rods at any one time. Mostly all the fishing sections are easily accessible by using normal cars. To access some of the fishing sections a 4×4 is convenient to have.

The Litlaa lodge is offering either full board services or self catering.
