THE SUNNUDALSÁ RIVER

Undiscovered Salmon River

The Sunnudalsá is a tributary of the Hofsá river and forms part of the same basin. Its 23km of gin clear waters are sourced from the nearby high mountains, making it the coldest river in the region. Its two beats offer a very challenging and rewarding salmon fishing experience. A new fish ladder was constructed in 2005, which helped to increase the fishing stocks in this river. At its mouth are some of the best Arctic char pools in North East Iceland.
