Welcome to the legendary River Thverá/Kjarrá in Iceland

The River Thverá/Kjarrá provides some of the best salmon fishing in Iceland, if not the world! And with coastal netting banned, the only barriers to ascending fish are the natural, rushing waterfalls and your favourite salmon fly.

The Thvera /Kjarra are in fact the same stream, originating in the North-Western highlands of Iceland in the district of Borgarfjordur, just about an hour´s drive from the capital Reykjavik. The upper part of the river is named Kjarra and is characterized by its remoteness from civilization where one fishes in the highlands of Iceland in perfect solitude. The lower part of the river is named Thvera where the river flows through the lowlands along lush farm fields with the occasional farm house in sight.

The Thvera/Kjarra stretches 90 kilometres from its confluence with the glacial river Hvita up to an altitude of 400 meters with no obstacles to hinder the salmon on its journey up river. Posts on the riverbanks identify just under 200 named fishing pools from the lowest part of Thvera to the highest in the Kjarra; where the headwaters flow from an abundance of untouched highland lakes.
