Your opportunity to fish the amazing Midfjardara with it’s three tributaries, the Nuspa, the Vestura and the Austura.
We provide trips to both the Midfardara and Thvera/Kjarra Rivers.
These rivers perfect for both single or small double-handed rods with floating line and small flies or hitch-tubes.
The river Midfjardara, is known in Iceland as “The Queen of the Rivers,” this stunning river with over 200 named pools, and with only six to ten rods that rotate over five beats it is hard 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 that features the famous canyon section which, although a hike, is well worth it as it is a beautiful part of the river.
The season on the Midfardara starts on June 23rd and ends September 28th.
The river Thvera/Kjarra are in fact the same stream, originating in the north-western highlands of Iceland in the district of Borgarfjordur, about an hour´s drive from the capital Reykjavik.
The upper part of the river is named Kjarra and is characterized by its remoteness from civilisation where one fishes in the highlands of Iceland in perfect solitude. The lower part of the river is named Thvera where the river flows through the lowlands along lush fields with the occasional farmhouse in sight.
The Thvera/Kjarra stretches 90 kilometres from its confluence with the glacial river Hvita up to an altitude of 400 metres with no obstacles to hinder the salmon on their journey up river. Posts on the riverbanks identify just under 200 named pools from the lowest part of Thvera to the highest in the Kjarra; where the headwaters flow from an abundance of untouched highland lakes.
