The Highlands are truly the heart of Iceland.

 

With its uncanny beauty and epic scenery the Highlands offer you an experience unlike any other. Here you can truly become one with nature as the Highlands are untouched and uninhabited by men.

 

The vast wilderness - mountains, deserts, canyons, lakes and rivers - demonstrates the powerful forces of fire and ice which have shaped the landscape on this volcanic island over centuries. Amidst all of this beauty, there is the trout and the arctic char - peacefully cruising the gin clear streams of the Highlands like it has done from the Ice age.

 

The experience cannot be put into words - it has to be lived.

Kaldakvísl River

Fishermen will fish both river Kaldakvísl and river Tungnaá. The river Kaldakvísl is truly a hidden gem. Fished only by a select few, Kaldakvísl has now been made exclusively available only to the customers of Fish Partner. Diversity and contrasts are the river’s main characteristics. On the 12 km (16 mile) beat, one can find beautiful waterfalls, great canyons, fast water, slow water, rocks, sand and so much more. The river is full of arctic char, their size averaging at 3-4 lbs, although char weighing up to 7 lbs can be found there, as can big brown trout.

 

The upper part of the river flows through inaccessibly deep canyons, and it is in these canyons where the char and trout can grow to their full size, safe from anglers. The river has a four rod limit. It’s hard not to fall in love with Kaldakvísl once you’ve had the chance to get to know her.

 

Tungnaá River

River Tungnaá is a gin clear spring water flowing into beautiful micro canyons area along with traditional fast and slow running pools, filled with big Arctic char. This smallish, south Iceland Highland trout stream is probably one of the best-kept trout secrets in global angling. It is a technical river where stealth, among other attributes, is needed. The quarry is native brown trout and monster chars. They are on average 2-5 pounds, with the monsters ranging to 10 pounds.

 

Sight-fishing in Gin Clear Water

Tungnaá is a formerly milky glacial river that became gin clear in 2013 as a consequence of a newly opened hydro-electric power plant. The new plant transformed this formerly rough, dark river into a fascinating crystal-clear stream, flowing into beautiful miniature canyons as well as more traditional pools filled with both Ice Age brown trout and big arctic char.
