1. Magic River - Finland! - Accommodation in a cabin or lavvu!
Probably the best grayling river in the world!
"I have been fishing grayling in Northern Scandinavia for more than 20 years. During my fishing career I have visited many wonderful grayling rivers, but compared to any other river the Magic River is unique. In the northernmost reaches of Lapland, there's a river where the grayling grow really big. Every year dozens of grayling over 1 kg (2.2 lbs), the largest ones exceeding even 2 kg (4.4 lbs) in weight, are caught there"
The source of the river is located in the high fell range. The elevation of the primary headwater lake of the river is more than 600 meters above sea level. The river runs far away from any settlement, so it is a genuine wilderness river. Distance to the nearest road is about 35 km. This is the main reason why there has not been over-fishing in the river, and, consequently, the grayling have been able to attain trophy size. We have been naming the rapids of the river as 2100, 2000, 1930, 1850, 1780 etc., not by the length of the rapids, but by the weight (in grammes) of the largest grayling we have caught there.
Here we have 1 amazing river with many rapids full of graylings! We also have 2 lakes in the area! We reach them by helicopter or airplane. To some of the places we have to walk a distance of 0.5km-3km. The accommondation will be in a wilderness cabin with sauna or in Lavvu (depending on location in the Magic River). The nearest rapids are only 50m from the cabin!

3. Extreme fly fishing for a arctic char in Norway - Accommodation in a Lavvu (Arctic char).
Here we have two lakes and one river full of arctic chars!
REAL WILDERNESS waters. Distance to the nearest road is about 50 km. This is the main reason why there has not been over-fishing in the lakes and river, and, consequently, the arctic char have been able to attain trophy size.
Facts: This area inhabits only large arctic char, ... fisherman can be caught 10-20 (500 - 1500grams) arctic chars during one day. The largest arctic char we have caught there is 3500grams. The average arctic char weight is AMAZING 1000 GRAMS.
We reach the area by ATV(Four Wheelers) and hotspots by canoes/boat. To some of the places we have to walk a distance of 0.5km-3.0km. Accommodation will be in a warm Lavvu.
Lavvu is a temporary dwelling used by the Sami people of northern Scandinavia. It has a design similar to a Native American tipi but is less vertical and more stable in high winds. It enables the indigenous cultures of the treeless plains of northern Scandinavia and the high arctic of Eurasia to follow their reindeer herds. It is still used as a temporary shelter by the Sami, and increasingly by other people for camping. The king of all lavvu’s, finnmark has been developed for use by the most demanding outdoorsmen in the most demanding environments.
More about Finnmark Lavvu: http://www.helsport.no/en/product/TENTS/XTREM/Finnmark Lavvu gives us a great opportunity to camp by the best flyfishing waters. Heater, sleeping bags, pads and outdoor cooking equipment included.
The nearest hotspot are only 50m from the camp! FISHING: Flyfishing, In shore(waders) and off shore!

-The weather in the fell regions can get so bad that the helicopter or airplane can not keep up their operation anymore. This means that in the worst case scenario we might have to stay in the tundra for an extra night.

Please note, that in case of very unlucky weather situations the aircrafts are not able to operate.
