About the river

Tungufljot is a very beautiful river in Iceland where you can get good catches in beautiful surroundings with the waterfall Faxi as the crown.

The Tungufljot rivers system is one of the biggest in Iceland, it is the main river which is about 30 km long with three attractive tributaries which joins the main river on the upper part plus several other lesser important tributaries and sight streams.

Upper part of the river is mainly a trout area that has trout up to 12-14 pounds. The salmon area is below the waterfall. Fished with max 4 rods on the west bank, the salmon area is one of the most beautiful in Iceland. The main pool is the waterfall pool, but the canyon below and the area below the canyons gives also good number of fish, each year.
