Brynjudalsá is a small salmon river only 45 minutes away from the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik. It is a great option for daytrips from the capital or couple of days of fishing. We can offer different kinds of accommodation for anglers in the area, from a summer lodge to a fully serviced hotel. The catch statistics are wonderful for this small river as its produces an average of 240 salmon last 5 years with last year finishing in 303 salmon.

What’s Greenland like? I’ve been asked that questions many times and I still haven’t got a good answer for it. Greenland is so much bigger, more beautiful and spectacular than words can describe. You have to be here and experience it. I’ve had so many amazing moments in Greenland and there’s nothing like it.

Did you have a good time on our rivers this season? It was a tough season in Iceland for many rivers here although some were doing much better then others such as Blanda and East Ranga river. I have heard many great stories from anglers fishing this season but would love to have some more and photos so please email me your story and photos to: and we can post it on our page. A angler never gets enough of fisihing stories!

 Terry Nab fished Stóra Laxá beats 1-2 for just one day and hit the jackpot. He sent us his report along with some beautiful pictures.

This combination is ideal for parties, families and friends. We fish total of 5 rods; 4 rods in Svarta and 3 rods on beat 4 in Blanda. This way 7 rods can rotate freely from Svarta to Blanda and experience high quality salmon fishing on two different rivers. The self catering lodge in Svarta can accommodate all anglers from both beats as it has space for up to 10 people.

The Stora Laxa river is one of the most beautiful rivers in Iceland, for myself I will never get enough of it, there are new fishing places around every corner more beautiful then the other. The Asgardur is situated nearby which makes it great as a combination but that is a very different river so it is good to experience both. It would be perfect to spend f.ex. 3 days at Stora Laxa and 2 days at Sog Asgardur and Sydri Bru.
