With a myriad of rivers and lakes, Iceland is an ideal location for fishing fans. Furthermore, Hotel Rangá sits on the banks of one of Iceland’s best salmon rivers, the East-Rangá River. In addition, there are several rivers and lakes in South Iceland where fishing for Arctic char and brown trout is available.


All fishing in local rivers must be booked with a guide. Salmon fishing is highly popular in Iceland, and rivers are booked well in advance, so it is a good idea to inquire about this option prior to your trip to Hotel Rangá. The fishing season is from June to October.
