    Midfjardara, known in Iceland as “The Queen of the Rivers” this stunning river with its gin clear water has over 200 named pools, and with only six to ten rods that rotate over five beats it ishard not to feel that you have this cracking river to yourself.

    The main river also has three tributaries, the Nupsa which is perfect for finding pots and pools, the Vestura and the Austura thatfeatures the famous canyon section which, although a hike, is well worth it asit is a beautiful part of the river. The joy of the Midfjardara is that there is so much water to fish that even if one opts out of the canyon section on the Austura there are numerous different pools to fish.

    The Midfjardara is perfect for those that like to use single or small double-handed rods with floating line and smallflies or hitch-tubes. The main run of the river is predominantly made up of grilse but in the early season the majority of fish tend to be multi-sea-winterfish in the 10 to 18 pound range. Professional english speaking guides will take the anglers in a 4WD vehicle to the river every day for a new experience.

    The lodge has 10 bedrooms with ensuitefacilities, so a full rod will ensure a private room. The lodge is well managedand has one of Iceland's finest chefs in the kitchen. Also featured is a diningroom, lounge, bar, wader room and outside Jacuzzi for those that want to unwindat the end of the day.

    Sydri Bru


    • Season 24 June to 24 September

    • 2.5 kms beat. One rod

    • Average catch: 120 salmon

    • Very comfortable self-catering lodge (catering available)

    • Guide available

    The Sog river lies in the south of Iceland, around a one hour drive to the east from Reykjavik. It is the largest spring-fed river in Iceland and runs from Lake Thingvallatn to its junction with the glacier-fed river Hvita although, due to hydro-electric installations, only some 12 kms are passable by salmon.

    The Sog has a healthy population of salmon and arctic char. Most of the salmon are grilse in the 5 – 10 lbs range but a fair number of multi-sea-winter fish are caught each year ranging up to [25] lbs. The char average [1 lb] but run up to [8] lbs.

    The Sydri Bru beat is the private left bank of the top [2.5/3] kms of the fishable section of the river and fishes one rod. It has [8] pools although the majority of fish are caught in the top (home) pool. Annual salmon catches on the beat range from [110 to 240] fish. Fishing is with either single-handed or light double-handed rods and floating lines.

    As the water level in the river is controlled by the hydro-electric dams above the beat, low water, even in a dry summer, is not a problem.

    The lodge at Sydri Bru is a self catering lodge, but full on board accommodation can be arrange up on request. The Lodge it is unusually spacious and comfortable for a fishing lodge with a large kitchen and sitting/dining area (with WIFI and TV), three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The lodge is a short drive from the town of Selfoss which has a number of good restaurants and convenient shopping.

    If our guests like the privacy at the lodge but rather like some fine dining instead of self catering,  Grimsborgir restaurant is only 5 min drive from the lodge. Grimsborgir restaurant welcomes our guest to therestaurant and bar.
