If you enjoy fishing, then this is a post for you. There are numerous places to fish around Europe but here are some of our carefully selected favourites.

Laxa River, Iceland

Salmon and trout fishing in Iceland
One of the top places to go fishing in Europe is the Laxa River, Iceland. It has a reputation for producing a colossal amount of salmon and trout – so much that a rota has been put in place in some places to limit 20 catches per rod per day! In the summer months the river will change colour due to the build-up of algae but don’t let that you deter you, the colour changes simply act as a reminder that the river is a perfect ecosystem.

River Naver, Scotland
