The Minnivallalaekur River is one of the best Brown Trout rivers in Europe and is ideal for small fishing groups.
The crystal-clear, spring-fed waters are home to massive Brown Trout, and anglers can enjoy all the creature comforts during their visit thanks to the comfortable self-catering lodge located on the river’s banks.
The lodge sits on a bend in the river, right next to one of the best pools, with a magnificent view to Mt Hekla in the distance.
There are four twin bedrooms, two bathrooms with showers, a well-equipped kitchen, dining-room and sitting-room, and a veranda with a thermal spa.
This is a self-catering lodge; however, catering can be arranged at additional costs.
WIFI is available in the lodge, but you will need to bring your own laptop or tablet.
The Minnivallalaekur River is fast becoming a world-famous river for producing large wild Trout between ten and sixteen pounds, each season. Fish average in excess of three pounds, and there is no prettier place to fly-fish in Iceland.
The seven-kilometres of spring-fed beauty might be the best wild brown trout river in Europe. Certainly, very few rivers would hold the number of double-figure fish that the ‘Minni’ is famous for producing. The fishing is truly stealth-fishing for large Wild Brown Trout in gin-clear water. This ‘fly only’ ‘catch and release’ fishery is available to four rods to ensure that it is sustained into the future. A guide can be arranged if required, and rod-sharing is allowed. Much of the fishing is with dry flies, but small nymphs are used as well.
5-6 weight rods and gear are ideal for these large Trout. We would advise all anglers to take all the equipment they need, including waders, boots, rods, reels, and lines.
Passport with a minimum of six months validity and photo ID to purchase a fishing licence. No Visa required.
