Iceland - Country & Culture
Why you should plan ahead
Iceland is a small country with no mass capacity, which just adds to its appeal. Frontiers needs to know your plans early...
From a fishing point of view, each river has a Government allocated number of rods, usually between 6 and 10, so the capacity at fishing lodges is small. Compounding this is the fact that each river only has a 90-day season of which only perhaps 3 or 4 weeks are considered prime time. Combine these facts with the high rate of repeat guests and it means that space is often at a premium. Space for 1 or 2 rods is usually possible but planning for 4 or 6 is a much bigger project. The same applies to hotels and lodges for general travel outside Reykjavik which itself only has a couple of larger capacity hotels.
The key therefore is to plan early. If you want prime salmon fishing, let us know in August so we are poised with a waiting list when the booking sheets open for the next year. For some trout fishing, it is the same, for the more varied trout and char options, before Christmas is best. For general travel, before Christmas or earlier is best to secure some of the best places to stay, contact us for a chat.
