Arctic Char Extreme, Norway Kautokeino

If you have dreamed catching really large arctic char on fly. It can come true but you must follow us up to the Norwegian Mountain lakes. There swims much bigger arctic char than in rivers!

REAL WILDERNESS waters. Here we have two lakes full of arctic chars. Here is also one lake where swim very fat graylings!

Distance to the nearest road is about 40 km. This is the main reason why there has not been over-fishing in the lakes, and, consequently, the arctic char have been able to attain trophy size.

Facts: These two arctic char lakes inhabits only arctic char, ... fisherman can be caught 10-20 (500 - 1500grams) arctic chars during one day. The largest ones exceeding even 4kg in weight, are caught there!

We reach the area by ATV(Four Wheelers) and hotspots by canoe/boat. To some of the places we have to walk a distance of 0.5km-3.0km. Accommodation will be in a comfortable Lavvu.

The nearest hotspot are only 50m from the camp! FISHING: Flyfishing, In shore(waders) and off shore!

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.

Lavvu gives us a great opportunity to camp by the best flyfishing waters. Heater, sleeping bags, pads and outdoor cooking equipment included.
