The Langá-river á Mýrum, as it is known is 36 km long with 93 named pools. Located in the same area as Norðurá-river it is a typical Icelandic salmon river offering technical fishing with small flies – and boasts outstanding beauty. This river has been fished by the British since the early 1900’s, and has had a huge amount of work done to it, in terms of fish ladders and other devices to improve its course for salmon to run. The Langá-river fishes 12 rods in July and August and is best tackled with a single handed rod. In true Icelandic style, small hitched flies such as mini Sunray Shadows, Langa Fancy and Arndilly Fancy are the most popular. As the Langá-river originates in Lake Langavatn it always has a dependable flow of water and is one of the few Icelandic rivers that is truly consistent in a dry summer. The Langá-river remains one of the most naturally productive rivers in Iceland.

The Langá Syndicate built its new magnificent lodge in 1998 with 8 double rooms containing twin beds and en-suite bathrooms. The new lodge Langárbyrgi (Langá shelter) was built on a cliff 6 km from the ocean, overlooking the river. Guests are thoroughly pampered, and the food is simply outstanding.
