The Jokla River has a new lodge built in 2007 and offers fine views overlooking the Jokla River with a backdrop of snow-capped mountains and Birch woodland. It is ideally located to access both the main river and its tributaries.

There is a large living-room with a fireplace and a tackle storage area.

The lodge is located close to the Kalda River, a tributary of the Jokla. This full-service lodge has six double bedrooms (each with its own bathroom), a living room, a tackle storage room and a fireplace.

WIFI is available in the lodge but you will need to bring your own laptop or tablet.

The Jokla River system is a combined four-rod fishery involving three rivers in the north-east of Iceland: the Fogruhlidara, the Kalda and the Jokla. The Fogruhlidara is one of Iceland’s most consistent and excellent sea-run Char rivers, while the Kalda offers sight-fishing for Salmon - something which has to be experienced!

While fishing these rivers, the nearby Jokla Estuary also has some of the finest sea-run char fishing in the country and it is a must to tussle with the Char running on the incoming tide—best in June and early July.
