Svartá in Bárð

Veiðitorg – fishing permits

Veiðitorg has been operating for several years. It offers cost effective fishing pemits for rivers in many parts of Iceland

In the Northeast Iceland, Veiðitorg offers permits in rivers like Svartá in Bárðardal, Brunná, Arnarvatnsá and Svarfaðardalsá. Svartá has often been considered a miniature image of Laxá in Mývatnssveit. The newest river at Veiðitorg is Svarfaðardalsá, which is primarily a sea char river, but brown trout fishing there is increasing.

One area that is growing in popularity is in the south part of Iceland, and is called Ölfusarós – East bank. The main fish species is sea trout and the day permit only costs 2000 isk. It has been a tradition that all profits from the sale of fishing permits go to the Rescue Squad Björg at Eyrarbakki. 

In the Eastern part of Iceland, the rivers available on Veiðitorg are home to sea char. These are Selfljót, Fjarðará in Borgarfjörður and Dalsá. However, brown trout can also be found in Selfljót. Information pages about these rivers will soon be available on Veiðiheimar. Veiðitorg offers few days in the salmon river Deildará
