We have just been advised that a prime slot in 15 – 17 July 2017 has just become available which would be ideal for an intact party of 5 rods. This is the week right after the first spring tide in July. If you have not planned a summer salmon trip for this season or are looking to experience Iceland for the first time this space will offer great hitch fishing opportunities, perfect for those that like visual salmon fishing; learn more about fishing the hitch here.

Haukadalsá is a short west coast river limited to just 4 or 5 rods. There are 40 named salmon pools accessed by the lodge, most of which have long runs and are perfect for fishing with fly. The river is intimate and best fished with a single handed rod and floating line. The average salmon is around 6 lbs with larger fish entering the river early in the season (late June).

The charming lodge is set on the riverbank directly overlooking beat 5 with breath-taking views over the hills on one side and over the sea on the other. Each rod has a private double room with    en-suite facilities.
