ARCTIC CHAR - GRETA GARBO OF THE MOUNTAINS
Our target fish for the trip is exclusively arctic char (Salvelinus alpinus), which is notoriously hard to catch. The fish tend to get more active during the arctic spring with primetime in May, when especially larger fish is hunting. Fishing for the famous arctic char is considered to be the absolute finest type of fishing that can be done in the arctic region. The fish thrive in harsh conditions far over the tree line, where lakes are frozen for a majority of the year and with otherwise cold summers. Generally, many consider arctic char to a finer catch than e.g. brown trout, salmon, pike and grayling and it offers a good fight as being a very strong fish, High up in the mountains you can catch fish up to 2 kg and in some very rare situations also between 3 to 4 kg. Our guides know the home of arctic char.
