Landmannalaugar highland fishing

landmannalaugar-fishing-2It does not sound good to go fishing in a volcano crater but this is what we will do in this tour, in many cases with good results. The crater is called Ljótipollur, The Ugly Puddle, and is a crater that exploded in a eruption the year 1477. In spite of this strange name the crater and the surrounding is tremendously charming and beautiful, nothing like it in the Icelandic nature. The natural beauty of this area gives you the insight into the feeling of the Neil Armstrong first step on the moon. The black sand and lava fields, volcano craters and moss are examples of what we will see. ljotipollur-fishingToday this lake is one of the best brown trout fishing lake in Iceland that is located up on the highland. Getting into the crater requires walking down a steep hill. It’s not strenuous but you definitely don’t want to forget anything in the car. The roads up on the highland are more like a path and only for 4×4 jeeps and experienced drivers.

We will start the day by driving towards the highland and if we feel like doing so, we will stop on interesting places on the way. It can be waterfalls or good sights to the “queen of volcanos” Mt. Hekla.

ljotipollur-11On a typical day we tend to start fishing at Ljotipollur and stay there to noon and then take a break. We will drive to Landmannalaugar and go for a swim in a natural hot swimming pool or hike for 1 – 3 hours, if you feel like doing so. On our way back home we will fish in lake Frostastadarvatn or Domadalsvatn for a couple of hours, a small secret lake that many overlook. We might just do fishing in this tour if you feel like doing so and like this tour to be a little flexible, according to your ideas and interests. Our feeling is this tour is a unique family tour, where young and old can together, enjoy the outdoor activity in the Icelandic beautiful nature.
