Application form for fishing


The Laxa in Kjos is the centerpiece of one of the most stunning glacially-forged valleys in southern Iceland.

A narrow upper canyon splays into a gentle, peaceful, arable valley before cascading down the final falls and pools into the sea.

Amazingly, this exceptional river and its beautiful tributary can be reached within an hour's drive from Reykjavik and one-and-a half hour's drive of Keflavik International Airport.

Arguably one of the countries top producers and it never falls out of the top ten listings.

Besides being a first-class salmon river, it also has a very substantial run of good-sized sea trout, some straying into the 8 to 10 pound class. It goes without saying that the sea trout add another exciting angle to these intimate and exhilarating rivers.

Fishers must be guided by our guides (two rods per beat sharing one guide) and stay in the luxurious Kjos Lodge.
