The newly renovated lodge Laxahvammur on the Miðfjarðará is one of the oldest established lodges in Iceland. In 2008 after Rafn V. Alfreðsson started his lease on the Miðfjarðará the work on renovating the lodge started. The landowners in a cooperation with Rafn renovated the whole guest area to make it as comfortable as possible for our guests.
Every full rod has a private bedroom with a bathroom and shower.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the dining lounge.
In the northern part of Iceland runs one of the finest salmon rivers you will find, the Miðfjarðará. A 115 km long river system that is based on 4 rivers. The main river the Miðfjarðará, the Austurá, the Vesturá and the small Núpsá.
There are over 220 named pools on the whole system and we only fish with 6 – 10 rods depending on the time of the season. Anglers will have enough space to fish and the pools are well rested between fishermen to keep the fishing pressure down. The Miðfjarðará is well known for aggressive fish that most often tend to take surface flies, no matter the time of the season.
The Miðfjarðara is one of the best salmon rivers in Iceland with an average catch of around 3300 salmon for the past seven years. The 2015 season was unique in catches as we l View more...anded 6000 salmon in the 99 day season.
Our studies show that the Miðfjarðará has a growing number of parr in all the 4 rivers and a really healthy natural stock of salmon. There are no smolt releasing programs on our rivers and we intend to keep it that way… Wild is the future.
Laxahvammur is a big spacious lodge with 10 rooms that all have private bathrooms, one for each rod. Big lounge and dining area, a comfortable sitting area with a good variety of fishing books and magazines. At the lodge we have a good dry room for our clients fishing kit and waders. If you need to purchase some flies we have a large selection of proven Icelandic salmon flies and tubes. Outside we have two verandas with good view over the surrounding area, a jacuzzi and a shower. For those who want to use their resting time to practice their golf swing, we do have a couple of holes just outside the lodge.
