The Hafralónsá river.

Explore the wild and rugged Hafralonsá

This river offers 28kms of fishing from 55 pools – and it is a truly wild, rugged river in North-East Iceland.


Hafralonsá is best suited to those who are fit and adventurous, as it has some stunning but deep canyons – which require some strong wading. Its appeal is the number of rods on the river, its beauty, and the size of the fish, some weighing in the late teens.


The salmon’s journey ends at the top waterfall or the waterfall on the stunning tributary, the Kverka.
