Arrival day

Our driver will collect guests from Murmansk airport each Friday, ideally between 13:00 to 15:00 local time. By microbus, the journey to the camp takes around 3 hours. If you need to buy anything (for example batteries, toiletries etc.) please let the driver know at the airport. There will be no chances to shop after leaving Murmansk.

On the arrival at the lodge, our staff will help you settle in and get acquainted with the camp’s infrastructure and schedule. After dinner, the guides will explain the fishing program and beat rotation. Before fishing at the camp, it is compulsory to disinfect equipment and gear. The rivers and guides are rested on Friday, and fishing begins Saturday morning.

Useful information

Caring for fish

It is our policy to return most of our Atlantic salmon unless they have been deeply hooked and are unlikely to survive.

Please pay attention to some rules which helps you to treat the fish.

  • Never pick up a fish by its tail.
  • Never drag a fish up onto the bank.
  • Keep the fish in the water as much as possible while unhooking and photographing it.
  • Never handle a fish with dry hands.
  • Use barbless hooks, pinching down barbs is sufficient and do not use treble hooks.
