A small group trip hosted by Jeff McEvoy of Weatherby’s and Haukur Þórðarson from Iceland will fish two rivers – the Eldvatn on the southern coast for sea trout – running from 5 to 15 pounds; and the Haukadalsa due north of Reykjavik for Atlantic salmon averaging 5-15 pounds. Trip dates will be to arrive in Iceland on August 31st and depart on September 8th. We will spend three days on each river with one night in Reykjavik between rivers on September 3 and September 7 before departure on the afternoon of the 8th.
Space will be limited to a total of 10 anglers as singles or pairs. Price for a single will be $5395 and pairs will be $3895 per person. It will include three nights lodging and meals on each river and two nights in Reykjavik. This will be a semi-guided trip, meaning you will have access to local expertise, but will not have exclusive, full time access to a guide. Full time guide can be available for additional fee. Pricing currently does not include airfare, or meals while in Reykjavik, but does include in-country transportation vehicle rentals.
