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. Salmon can run 30 kilometers up to a large waterfall. The river follows strict conservation measures and produces plenty of fish in the 20-lbs range.
Sport fishing in Iceland was developed by traditional British anglers who were soon followed by American sport fishers. For many years the Hofsá has been a river enjoyed by royals, lords and dignitaries from across the world.
The Hofsá lodge has 7 double rooms and 2 single rooms. The food and service is very good. The living room has a good view over the river and bright Icelandic summer nights
