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.
