This is a prolific, four rod sea char river with some hope of catching an odd salmon in the southernmost part of the Westfjords Region. There is a new lodge on the river.
In this area the hills and mounds are sparsely vegetated but the valley floors and the slopes have lush growth. Communications were difficult in the past, especially the crossing of mountains in winter. Many died of exposure on one of the most dangerous stretches until it was blessed by bishop Gudmundur the good. The topographic names starting with the word „Gufa-” date back to the first settler, Ketill gufa.
