Private island

A bonfire will be lit and wooden coals prepared for the grill. Together we'll enjoy a three course meal which includes the wild salmon and homegrown herbs and vegetables.

Come visit a private island in the glacial river Þjórsá. Participate in catching wild salmon in the tradition of local farmers, using a net.

Traustholtshólmi is a place of stunning beauty, untouched by modern development. Experience the sustainable and restricted island in the wide and historic Þjórsá river. Get close to the Island's unspoiled nature and participate in island life.

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 ecofriendly space using off the grid solutions.

 The rhubarb is coming up. Spring comes to the island. There is just one house on the island, which Hákon recently renovated. 


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 we 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.
