Krossá river on Skardströnd

The surroundings around Krossa river is truly spectacular with small bushes and shrubs with berries and a magnificent view over Breidafjord.

This neat little river has 40 marked pools that vary from fast and shallow to slow and deep. There is a trail to all pools but the top beat requires 4x4 jeep. The summer of 2010 the catch was 254 Salmon but keep in mind that there is a quota in place or 4 Salmon a day pr. rod or 16 Salmon for both rods for two days.
