Experience the true island lifestyle on a private Island in the glacial river Þjórsá.

Get close to unspoiled nature and participate in island life by visiting the private island Traustholtshólmi in the glacial river Þjórsá—a place of stunning beauty, untouched by modern development.

Participate in catching wild salmon in a net in the tradition of local farmers and experience the sustainable and restricted island in the wide and historic Þjórsá river.

The owner and inhabitant of Traustholtshólmi, Hákon, and his sheepdog Skuggi will welcome you to the island. Hákon spent his summers on the island while growing up and is now following his dream to build a sustainable and eco-friendly space using off the grid solutions.

Hákon will ferry guests over the river to the island. There the group will go check the nets and take in the catch of the day. After the excitement of catching the salmon, you go on a tour where Hákon will tell you about the life and history of the island and its surroundings, spanning all the way from the first settlers of Iceland. A bonfire will be lit and wooden coals prepared for the grill.

You'll enjoy a three-course meal which includes the wild salmon and homegrown herbs and vegetables. Sharing stories by the fire is a great way to end the day.

Tailored to both personal preferences and every group’s individual dynamic, each visit is sure to be special and every visitor is free to go and explore the island on his own.

Come lie in the tall grasses and experience the true sense of seclusion and peacefulness that Traustholtshólmi has to offer. Check availability by choosing a date.
