Gljúfurá River

We are proud to announce that for the 2019 season Gljúfrá in Húnavatnssýsla area will be available exclusively to Fish Partner clients.

This beautiful three-rod river whose name, Gljúfurá, means "canyon river" offers a little bit of everything Icelandic fishing has to offer. The lower section of the river has a great number of sea-run Arctic char all season with some sea-run brown trout mixed in, especially during spring and fall. The upper section offers good resident brown trout fishing for those willing to walk to the remote upper section. The main attraction of the river though is the Atlantic salmon fishing, the main run usually beginning in mid-July with August and September being the best salmon fishing months.

All three rods in the river are sold together and come with a cozy self-catering lodge that sleeps five and has all needed amenities including a hot tub overlooking the river making it the perfect river for small groups looking for top class fishing in a private and intimate setting.
