Varzina River Lodge, Kola Peninsula

The very best flyfishing in Kola Peninsula, arctic Russia for large Atlantic salmon & trophy wild brown trout!

Untouched wild nature, clear water and clean air combined with excellent fishing make the Varzina Lodge truly a world class fishing destination.

The Lodge main building contains our gourmet kitchen, a spacious dining room and a fully supplied lounge bar. It is also equipped with a satellite-operated TV, phone, fax, and e-mail facilities. A specialized fly-shop is also available.There are two separate saunas with hot showers available daily. A four-person cabin with its own sauna and a small living room is also available. The Varzina experience is limited to satisfy 16 anglers per week.

All our rivers support wild populations of really large and truly strong Atlantic salmon. Fish up to 35 lbs. and more, crystal clear water, great variety of rivers all with huge number of fishable pools – These are the elements that combine to make the unforgettable Varzina salmon experience.

We can offer easy fishing and instruction to any beginner and most challenging pools to the demanding salmon connoisseur.

Daily helicopter flights take fishermen to the pools that are at their prime condition for fishing . There is one experienced guide available for each two fishermen. Our international guides know the area well and can help with fish spotting, fly selection and casting problems as necessary.

The first early salmon are all huge. They run from June to early July. Then the mid-sized fish follow and finally also the numerous grilse fill all the pools. Fresh run, sea-liced fish can be found even high up in all the rivers throughout the whole season.

The Varzina brown trout fishing is really one of the seven wonders of the fishing world. No other place in the world can offer brown trout fishing of this quality and variety. Otherwise normal trophy trout is just one average fish in our rivers.

Specially late in the season there is no end to the trout averaging well over 22 inches. These are really wild, heavyweight fighting fish that will amaze even the most jaded trout angler. We just might call your sixth (of the day) double figure fish a trophy…

The excellent fishing combined with first class accommodation, service and guiding will make your holiday one that you’ll really remember forever.
