What can be fished


Langadalsá is deep in Ísafjarðardjúp and runs from Þorskafjarðarheiði into Nauteyrarós. It’s considered to be a late summer river but there are a fair number of two year-old salmon in the system. Salmon stocks have been increasing following mandatory catch and release of large salmon which started in 2013. The river runs in well-vegetated lowlands north of Langidalur. In addition to salmon fishing, there is often good char fishing in the river. The average catch over the last 15 years is about 310 salmon. The river is fished two days at a time, from noon to noon.

Accommodation & Facilities

Angling lodge

Close to the river there is a nice, spacious fishing house that consists of two cabins connected by a large terrace. In one cabin there is a lounge and a kitchen and in the other are eight roomy double bedrooms. The accommodation offers made up beds and cleaning is offered after each group . A fish cleaning room house and a sauna are on the terrace, also a gas grill. Great facilities for anglers and their families!

Anglers can arrive one hour before the fishing starts but on the day of departure, they should stop fishing at 12:00 to evacuate from the house. Guests are asked to take out rubbish and all bottles and cans.

The fishing house is included in the price of fishing permits


The fishing house/cabin is in Langadalur, about 47 km from Hólmavík. From Hólmavík, drive road nr. 61 and follow a sign that leads to Ísafjörður. Drive over Steingrímsfjarðarheiði until you see a sign with road number 635 on your right. Pass the sign, drive a few meters and then there is an information stop to the left. The next offroad is the gravel road into Langidalur. This gravel road is driven into the valley, passing a few cottages/summer houses on the left and after 4 km the fishing house is located by the river on the right.

River Langadalsá is fishable about 20 km and there are 37 marked fishing spots
