"Downtown fishing" Nature/ Wildlife Tip by snorril

Nature/ Wildlife, Reykjavķk Region: 4 reviews and 3 photos

  Tara and me in Ellišaįr valley
by snorril

Favorite thing: To emphesize the cleaness of Reykjavķk people often point out that through the middle of the city runs an active salmon river, Elllišaįr.

Another slamon river, Korpa, is on the outskirts of the city.

Fondest memory: I have never tried to fish in Ellišaįr but the river normally yealds over 1000 salmon during the 3 months season.

The valley, Ellišaįrdalur, through which the river runs, is a very popular hiking place among locals.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
