Charming little river

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.

Two major waterfalls are in the lower part where anglers can find great numbers of fish in the early season as the major runs show up. These runs then spread out the river system, producing great sport for anglers. Despite being a small volume river, Brynjudalsá produces some size salmon which average 7 pounds.


Brynjudalsa lodge is spacious, comfortable, modern and very well appointed; the scenery and vista from the lodge is truly breathtaking. One of the bedrooms has a mountain view, with the other overlooking the river valley.
Both bedrooms have two single beds. Both bedrooms are en-suite. Linen and towels can be supplied.

The lodge is self-catering, so you should stock up on supplies in Reykjavik. There are ample cooking utensils at the lodge. Hot water and electricity is 24hr and there is wi-fi at the lodge.
