What can be fished


The Brennan fishing area is at the junction of Þverá & Hvíta in Borgarfjörður. The fish that are on their way to Þverá pass through this area. In Brennan anglers mostly fish in the confluence of the two rivers. It’s permitted to fish with a fly all the season, but in August and September anglers may also fish with spinners. The fishing can be really good in Brennan. Early in the summer, the catch is mainly salmon, but in late July the sea trout start to migrate powerfully into the rivers.

Accommodation & Facilities

Angling lodge

There are two roomy fishing huts for the  Brennan fishing. The older one was rebuilt recently and has two double bedrooms and a bathroom. The new fishing hut also has two double bedrooms, a kitchen, a lounge and small dining area.  At the house there is a hot tub and on the porch,  a gas grill. Made up beds are included and the house is cleaned after each group of anglers. 

During the sea trout season, anglers stay in the two lodges at Brenna. At this time four rods are sold together but allowed to fish with five. The fifth rod is free of charge. 


Highway 1 is driven through Borgarnes and further north. At the Baula restaurant (25 km north of Borgarnes), turn right and drive over the bridge on Norðurá for approx. 2.7 km and then turn off to the right on a trail which leads to the farm Hamraendar, drive past it and continue on the road to the fishing hut

The fishing area is at the confluence of Hvítá and Þverá
