Laxa Laxardalur river is located in the north part of Iceland 90 km from Akureyri.
This section of Laxa offers fantastic big wild trout fishing – a big river with long wide flats, large curves and long riffles. It’s a truly great fly fishing river with an easy access to all areas.
Average sized trout is 5-7 pounds. Wild trout up to 10 pounds have been caught and landed in this part of Laxa. Many renowned fly fishers consider this to be one of the greatest wild brown trout rivers in the world.
The surroundings at Laxa river are absolutely beautiful and the fishing can truly be phenomenal.
Daily fishing is from 08:00 – 14.00 and 16:00 – 22:00. Two rods share each beat. The beats are very long with plenty of space for the two rods fishing the six hour shift. With the road going all along both river banks, access to the pools is quite easy.
The lodge, Raudholar, is an old lodge, but has recently been renovated. It now has private ensuite rooms for every fisherman. We find it very cozy with a sense of the history of past fishing adventures.
At the lodge we will have breakfast, lunch and dinner, served buffet style.
