About Original North
Original North – is a small family business located on an estate named Vað in Þingeyjarsveit which has belonged to our family for generations. The camp is on the banks of the glacier river Skjálfandafljót. There is considerable fishing in the river during the summer, both salmon and trout.
Near the camp we have the forest Fosselsskógur and near the forest we have two historical places Þingey and Skuldaþingsey, ancient parliamentary places. Between the two islets Skjálfandafljót runs in to Skipapoll via Ullarfoss, one of many beautiful waterfalls in Skjálfandafljót.
