The Urriðafoss waterfall in the River Þjórsá is one of the well-known natural pearls of Iceland. An enormous number of salmon pass through the waterfall, mainly in June. Þjórsá holds one of the largest wild salmon stocks in the country and angling in Urriðafoss is often like a fairy tale. Angling in the waterfall did not start until 2017, but it has already established itself as one of the best salmon fishing areas in the country. The catch in 2020 was 990 salmon and in the summer of 2021, 823 salmon were landed.
