The large and deep mountain lakes have high and stable stocks, and fish in great numbers start running this clear water river from beginning of July. The arctic char in mountain lakes are approximately 30 years in reaching ½ kg, and we find them at an average of 1-1½ kilo. If you appreciate clear water, strong fish and nice average size, this area offers quite possibly the best fly fishing for arctic char and brown trout in Lapland. We have caught arctic char up to 5-6 kg.
We have combed the Lapland wilderness for clear water fishing since 1981, and unique places like these, are still a reality. We will pitch our base-camp in one of the last remaining wilderness areas in Lapland that still offers serious trout fishing in kilometres of clear water rivers. North of the polar circle in the midnigth sun, you can fly fish all by yourself, day and night. The fishing is self guided and for fly only. You don't really need the daily attention of a guide, and the tour leader will explain and show you the best pools.
Our helicopter flies us deep into the Arctic mountains. Out here we aim to make our primitive stay in the wilderness as comfortable as possible, and for the first time this year we will bring a Lavvu with fireplace, where we can sit, eat and stand upright. Overnight in expedition tents for more privacy.

Anyone booking a trip with Wilderness-Tours can rest assure knowing, that we will do everything possible to ensure, that you are completely satisfied with our services.

Day 1-2. Travel to Lapland
We recommend going by train, through the Swedish wilderness all the way to Lapland. Flights are also avalible.
We meet at the helicopter base and fly off into the wilderness. The fishing camp is surrounded by crystal clear streams for 4-8 km in both directions. Under the Arctic sky, the fresh ingredients we cook over the open fire, and in river we have the finest drinking water.
We fish in the area surrounding the fishing camp, and we show you the best pools in the area. On this trip you do everything associated with wilderness life, even down to helping in the building of a stone smoking oven for our fish. The midnight sun shines north of the Polar Circle, you can fish at any time of the day and night.
If you are interested we can take a full-day excursion to a new, well-stocked stream. You can also join for a shorter distance, on the way there are several good pools, where fishing is also very recommended.
After a few days you forget the everyday life back home and a new day presents itself by being in the wilderness on its terms. The mountain scenery and animal life in the area deserves to be enjoyed, and if your desire for fishing has been met, you can go on a photo-safari. The Arctic nature is rich in both flora and fauna, and eagle, lynx, moose, reindeer and other animals come down to the river.
Helicopter takes us in the afternoon. After a deserved bath and visit in the sauna, the trip is finished with dinner and a good night's sleep in a cabin.
Next morning you bring home your wilderness experience.
