The fish are longer, heavier and there are more of them than in any river in the fjord! The stretch used for fishing is 4 kilometres long and surrounded by untouched and uninhabited endless miles of arctic tundra. In the long strokes and swings of the river, the trout awaits to bite on the foam flies. The biggest fish caught in the river, was 85 cm long and so wide, that not even the hand of an adult man could reach around. It was approximately 6 kg heavy.
The camp consists of tents with room for 3, but shared by 2. At the campsite, there is a huge tent for joint activities. You will be given a box of food supplies for share with your tent mate, and a trangia set.
