Belousiha River Lodge is located on a plateau in the Arctic tundra. Set amongst birch trees and rocky escarpments, the lodge overlooks the picturesque home pool of the Belousiha.
The camp is located just 150 km from Murmansk and happily does not require helicopters flights. The best beats on Belousiha are reached by walking three to five kms daily or quad bike. The mighty Voronya River is just a short drive away.
The infrastructure of the camp is well developed but as soon as you set off you will be in a pristine arctic wilderness.
We have available for our guests, compact, twin-bedded cabins which we call “red roofs”.
These each have electricity 24/7, European standard sockets, two comfortable beds, spacious cupboards and a table where you can tie flies.
The air temperature inside is regulating by an electro-heater. Dark curtains shade your room from the twenty four hour summer polar sun.
There is a small terrace outside where you can relax after your day’s fishing.
Starting in the 2018 season, we can offer our guests accommodation in the new VIP lodge – “ Grey House”, available on a first come, first served basis. This new building consists of two twin-bed rooms in spacious, Scandinavian style apartments. Each apartment has a rest area, work space and capacious storage space. Each has an en-suite bathroom with a hot water shower, sink, toilet, bidet and heated floors.
There is also a drying closet for fishing equipment in the hallway. Later in the season you can watch for the sometimes spectacular northern lights, from the small summer terrace.
The canteen is located on the edge of plateau which has beautiful views over the Belousiha River. The canteen is the social center in the camp. 24/7 you can comfortably sit on the sofa in front of our satellite TV or relax in the lounge zone or bar, take coffee or tea, share your success with friends and discuss strategy with guides for the next fishing day. You can also send emails if you need to stay in touch. Alternatively, you can take a beer and look out the window for salmon jumping in the home pool.
Each morning, the canteen serves a choice of sustaining breakfasts to set you up for the day. Before setting off for the river there will be lunch boxes, fruit and water to take with you. These contain all the energy you need to never be hungry whilst searching for your next trophy salmon. After fishing, before sauna you will find appetizer and snacks.
In the evening our excellent chefs serve traditional dishes of both Russian and European cuisine, often using local game and seafood.
There is also a bar where you can find good wines, whisky, vodka and a selection of cold beers.
