The lake Ólafsfjarðarvatn is a very special lake, nearly one of a kind. It splits into fresh water and seawater lake, depending on the depth. Therefore, all kinds of fish thrive there but the most common ones being trout, salmon, redfish and cod.
After meeting up at Kaffi Klara and gearing ourselves up for fishing, we ride to the lake area. We will start drilling holes through the thick ice and our local guide will inform you about the lake and show you how to use our fishing poles if you are not used to fishing. While fishing, you can enjoy breathtaking mountain views but it will get pretty cold on the lake. It is harder to catch some fish on the lake during winter as to summer time. With our catch of the day, we head back to the restaurant to start making local fish recipes with our local chef. Of course, after making our own fish dish, we will enjoy our lunch together at the restaurant.
Pick-ups from accommodations at the Troll Peninsula (Dalvík, Ólafsfjörður and Siglufjörður) or Akureyri Area, and Drop-offs can be arranged. Cross-country skiing course on the lake can be added to this experience.
