As you embark on your quest deep into the fjords, and journey away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it is easy to fall into the mindset that you are on an adventure. You might even be the first person that year to trek out this far to fish at that particular river. Whether this is true or not, there is no doubt that the peace and tranquility of Greenland’s backcountry, the breathing in of the purest air with only your guide and companions with you, will make you feel like you are the only persons in the world. And if you are thirsty, you can drink directly from the freshwater streams.
It feels like stepping back in time to when the glaciers just retreated, and the rivers became colonized by fierce strong arctic char.
A fly fishing trip can be a day trip or a multi day tour. On a day trip, you will typically go to the harbour in the morning for a boat shuttle to the river. Depending on the river, you may have to hike a while to get to the best fishing spots. The day will then be spent fishing until you return to town in the evening. The level of guide services and food included are subject to the provider.
On a multi day tour, you will have the chance to really slow down your pulse and explore the surroundings. Multi day tours typically entail staying at a lodge or tent camp. There are plenty of things to do besides fishing. Take a walk in the mountains, look at the local wildlife. Depending on location you may be able to see caribou, muskox, all kinds of birds, and lots of rocks.
