Fnjóska Char

The Fnjóská river is actually better known as a salmon river, but is still  home to plenty of nice sized Arctic char. We offer a char section, not far from the Forest Vaglaskógur. This river is quite big and is more elusive than the other char rivers. The size of the char is usually around 2 lbs, but each year some 6-8 lbs fish are caught. There is also a chance to catch salmon in this stretch.
