Description

Renowned around the world for their salmon waters, a week in Norway is the trip of a lifetime for fishermen.

Anglers from around the world journey for a Norway fishing break; with Europeans making this pilgrimage since the mid-1800s, chasing the catch of their lives. The number of fish may be fewer than in Russia or Iceland, but the patient fish-less days all serve as part of the pursuit of landing that dream salmon. Indeed, any European who has caught a 40-50lb fish has, more than likely, snagged it in Norway.

Even those who return from Scandinavia without the giant prize speak favourably of the unique experience its rivers offer. With a dramatic untouched landscape and great group camaraderie, an escape to the Orkla River will never be forgotten - whether with friends, father, son, or as a solitary traveller.

Aunan Lodge, your home-away-from-home for the seven nights of this Norway fishing break, is located in the municipality of Rennebu in central Norway, about 1 hour and 15 minutes drive south of Trondheim. With twelve unique pools spread over more than 3 miles, the fishing is varied; whilst a limit of 12 rods ensure each is not over-populated. One expert guide is provided per six anglers, making tactical and technical advice readily available for all.

The accommodation is supremely comfortable, including 9 twin rooms, plus a mini-chalet for larger groups. Three meals a day are also included, with the lodge's dedicated chef placing an emphasis on delicious local produce. Meal time is understandably popular, with the chef serving up Scandinavian favourites such as reindeer, Norwegian strawberries, and of course, local salmon.

The Norwegian salmon season runs from 1st June - 31st August, and when you go is entirely up to you. June presents fewer fish but the largest salmon, so is ideal for experienced anglers. In July and August the salmon are generally smaller, but with a greater chance of pulling a fly; so ideal for less experienced anglers. There is no set rule though; with fishing across the season amongst Europe's most sought-after.

Anglers are free to bring their own tackle on this Norway fishing holiday, but if required all equipment is available to rent on-site. Rods and waders can be hired for a very reasonable daily fee of 160 NOK each (around £18), whilst tippet material and flies can be purchased in the tackle shop.

TRULY will also arrange for your fishing license / national fishing fee, and will pay for it on your behalf, at no additional cost.

Flights and airport transfers are not included. It is recommended to rent a car to give you the most flexibility during your stay (most pools are walking distance from the lodge, but most prefer the freedom of driving further afield).

Once a date has been booked, it is non-amendable or changeable. It is recommended (but not required) to take out voluntary cancellation protection, costing 3% of the booking price. This gives a right to cancel a booking if less than 45 days before arrival an event occurs involving serious illness, injury or death of a traveller or family member, which makes it impossible for the traveller to make the trip.

Reviews

  • Highly Recommended for Avid Fisherman

    As an experienced angler I was very interested to receive this gift from my children. I went with my wife who is a novice and we both had a great time and learnt a lot. The staff were polite, professional and learned in their field. The lodge was lovely, and the food was incredible, the freshest Norwegian produce, prepared with care and served with style. Great gift, great week and a great holiday. Highly recommended for anyone who interested in fishing.
