Spitsbergen is one of the last true wildernesses on this planet. The big question of course is: for how long ?!
That alone makes this trip a unique experience!
Unique in every way
This trip is unique in every way. Not only as a fly fishing destination but as a destination in general. It is going to be a life changing experience; that much is certain.
Trip part 1
After landing at the airport of Longyearbyen, we spend the first night at the Longyearbyen camp site. The next morning we travel to the southeast by luxury boat. This destination can only be reached by boat. We’ll set up camp for 2 nights and fish for arctic char.
Trip part 2
On the morning of day 4 we break up camp and travel, again by luxury boat, for roughly 5 hours to our actual wilderness camp, high up north (even higher up than the most northern town in the world Ny Alesund). A dinghy will drop us off at a remote beach.
At this spot we’ll camp for 4 days fishing and exploring, using the included packrafts.
On day 8
we’ll travel back, arriving back in Longyearbyen at about 5 pm, where we’ll have our parting meal together at the restaurant. Depending on which flight you have booked we say: “until tomorrow” or “see you soon”.
Note: For protection reasons – enviromental, resource, sensitive locations – we do not communicate exact locations.
The arctic wilderness camp is located in the far northwest and is one of the most beautiful and pristine areas of Spitsberge
At the camps, all safety equipment, tents, mats and kitchen equipment is provided for. Comments: We will sleep in common tent
We must, among other things, make sure that we don’t get surprise visits from polar bears. Bear guard during the night is a shared duty for all our guests. The feedback from previous guests is that this often is one of the highlights of the trip.
