Holsa-Thvera – Iceland Outfitters

Thverá / Hólsá

The junction of East and West Rangá rivers


The  Thvera is the part between the East and West Rangá river mouth. The Holsa/ Thvera is the perfect place for medium-sized groups as they can rent the lodge and the 6 rods beat privately for themselves.

The Thverá (6 rods) is 8 km long, top pool is from where East Rangá ends and lowest pool is the junction of Thverá/West Rangá.  The lower part, Holsá is 12 km and runs from the junction of THverá/Hólsá/West Rangá and towards the sea.  Holsá is sold separetly. 

All salmon that run up to East and West Rangá rivers has to go through Holsa, which makes this beat very interesting and pretty wild when fish are running. Prime time, this is high volume fishing and similar average catch per rod per day as in the East and West Rangá rivers.

The Holsa-Thvera river lodge

The fishing lodge is one of the finest, and anglers can choose if they arrange for their own meals or use the service of a local chef. Lodge has 6 twin, ensuite bedrooms, large sitting/dining room, a large veranda, good tackle store and a hot tub.

Lower Rangá is located in about 90 min drive from Reykjavik.

Anglers are mainly fishing for salmon, but there is a good sea trout fishing after mid-August. The largest sea trout caught there was 18 lbs.
