Three days of salmon fishing on the River Nordura from June 15-18

Mar 10, 2022 | Where To Fish

This very rare opportunity has just come up. One rod is available on river Nordura due to a cancellation. With the high-tide at sea on June 14 you will have fresh salmon running up the Nordura in the hundreds. Iceland has had a lot of snow this winter so there will be no shortage of water.

The Nordura river is one of the best salmon rivers in Iceland and quite often being the most productive one. Every year the Nordura frequently produces more than 2,000 salmon throughout the season. The river is fished with 12 rods and the total length of the Nordura is 65 km, with more than 100 named fishing pools. The Nordura is excellent for fly fishing and challenges anglers of all skills.

The Nordura river, commonly called “the most beautiful river” in Iceland. Anglers will enjoy the excellent fly fishing in the beautiful landscape and surroundings which are quite unique. The upper part of Nordura is rather flat and the bottom is mostly gravel. The middle area, up and down from the beautiful waterfall, Glanni, is predominated by rocks and lava mixed with bushes, trees and green grass flats. In the lowest part, below the Laxfoss waterfall, the river runs through wide canyons and there you can find many of the most magnificent fishing pools in the river, first class fly fishing wherever you wet your fly.

The lodge at Nordura
Full board accommodation is provided in the comfortable Nordura lodge with magnificent natural scenery and anglers will have first-class cuisine prepared by leading Icelandic chefs.

The lodge features a dining room, twelve twin-bedded bedrooms, all with private bathrooms and showers. A jacuzzi is located under the main lodge building. The lodge has central heating, a drying-room and storage areas for your fishing gear along with refrigerators and freezers for your catches.

Your meals will be served at fixed times. Breakfast at 7 am provides a good start to the day and a healthy lunch served at 1 pm during the break.

After a wonderful day of fishing, the chef will prepare a delicious gourmet three-course dinner to be served by caring staff. Wine, beer, spirits and soft drinks are available at extra cost.
