   Kiruna

Sweden’s northernmost town is sometimes the perfect starting point for our routes. In the middle 1900s, Kiruna was listed as the largest city in the world by area and today it houses one of the world’s most modern mines. With a larger well-developed airport, Kiruna serves as a good hub and starting point for our routes.

  Tromsø

City of the midnight sun. Tromsø is the largest urban area in Northern Norway and the third largest north of the Arctic Circle anywhere in the world. Tromsø is warmer than most other places located on the same latitude, due to the warming effect of the Gulf Stream. Outside the city, large areas in the municipality are above the treeline and have an alpine tundra climate.

   Evenes

Trout spot with a tricky landing. A remote fishing haven with a very challenging landing at the small airport, (that’s why we often choose to land by water. ) There is trout in most lakes in Evenes, and Arctic char spawns in Østervikvatnet a few kilometers east of Bogen. Evenes offer excellent fishing in very unique lakes and landscapes.

   Senja

A picture perfect miniature of Norway. Senja is the second largest island in Norway. This beautiful spot offers first-class fishing, High-end cuisine and very varied nature along the island coast.
