Our rivers

Laxá í Kjós

The Laxa in Kjos is the centerpiece of one of the most stunning glacially-forged valleys in southern Iceland. A narrow upper canyon splays into a gentle, peaceful, arable valley before cascading down the final falls and pools into the sea.


The Grimsa is a medium-sized river in the midwest region of Borgarfjordur, which is Iceland's most prolific Salmon area. Often referred to as “The Queen of Rivers”, it is an important and impressive river.


Svalbardsa is in the very north-east corner of Iceland in some of the most beautiful scenery in all the island.


Brynjudalsá is a charming little river in only about 40 minutes drive from Reykjavík. The river has a good stock of salmon and sea-trout.Brynjudalsa is fished with single handed rods, having the salmon close by and usually in full view


Hofsá is yet another glorious northern Iceland salmon river and, again like the Selá, is blessed with the most beautiful fly-fishing water. It is one of Iceland´s most prolific rivers, has seven beats and is perfect for a single or double –handed rods.

Laxá í Dölum

Over the years, Laxá í Dölum’s reputation as one of the great international Atlantic salmon fishing destinations has grown steadily. As its fame grew, it became popular with a priviledged group of famous public figures.


Hafralonsa is large, remote and demanding river located in the north-east of Iceland. It has a strong reputation and produces some large MSW fish. Deep canyon sections offer very visual fishing in fast and deep pools.

Sea Trout

Laxa in Kjos and Grimsa rivers have a phenomenal run of strong, large sea-trout. Averaging 3 to 5lbs with several fish in the 1–16lbs range they provide fantastic sport. We offer special weeks during the season where we specifically go after sea-trout.


  • End of season on the Laxa in Kjos

    Creation Date Friday, 19 October 2018, Author Haraldur Eiríksson


    The 2018 season is over and we start to think about the next one. Kjos anglers experienced fantastic fishing the last week, with about 100 salmon caught. We have not seen figures like that since July, but high water and good condition made the last days memorable. Some big sea trout were caught as well, fish between 80-85 cm. Final 2018 numbers from Kjos will be over 1.050 salmon for the short season, fished by 4-8 rods.
    We would like to thank all of our guests this year, and just a quick reminder that we have started to book days for the 2019 season.

  • Laxa in Dolum - end of season report

    Creation Date Friday, 19 October 2018, Author Haraldur Eiríksson

    Laxa in Dolum - end of season report.

    We enjoyed another good year on this fantastic river. Total catch was over 1200 salmon for 4-6 rods and puts Dolum amongst the best rivers to be found in terms of salmon caught per rod. But it was a strange season, as the salmon arrived very early.

    As a result, the 4 rods that fished the month of July had unbelievable fishing, catching up to 153 salmon in 3 days! The Dolum is known to be a late summer river, and August is usually the time for figures like that. But not this year, as the main run arrived early, and the usual August runs had already arrived. August still produced a fantastic sport, and so did September when we had heavy rain again. We saw some really good size fish, and large salmon up to 26lbs were caught.

    So the saga of this little river on the west coast of Iceland continues, from being an overfished river where most fish were knocked on the head - to be one of the finest fly-fishing rivers to be found worldwide.
