River Kaldakvisl – Arctic Char and Brown Trout

The Kaldakvisl is truly a gem. Words are unequal to the task of describing the landscape’s beauty. Diversity and contrasts are the river’s main characteristics. On the 12 km (16 mile) beat, one can find beautiful waterfalls, great canyons, fast water, slow water, rocks, sand and so much more. The river is supporting arctic char and brown trout, their size averaging at 3-4 lbs, although fish weighing up to 7 lbs can be found there. The upper part of the river flows through inaccessibly deep canyons, and it is in these canyons where the char and trout can grow to their full size, safe from anglers. It’s hard not to fall in love with Kaldakvisl once you’ve had the chance to get to know her. River Kaldakvisl is located approx 150 km east of Reykjavik.
