Tungufljot in 2018

River Tungulfjot runs quite close to the famous Geysir.  The area is one of Iceland’s most visited sights and is part of what is called the Golden circle. If you want to there is a chance to fish a stunning river and check out the sights in your lunch break as well. That would be an angler’s dream daytrip.

River Tungufljot is a gin clear fresh water river, rather large by Icelandic standards. The river has been on the rise again after a few years below par. Last two year the catch for the four rods has been around 300 salmon. Prices for the river are from 160-320 euros for the license per day.

The river is perfect for a day-trip from Reykjavik and you have the added bonus of checking out the major touristic sites as well.
