The second largest city in Greenland. It overlooks the fjoprd and the river mouth of the Erfalik RIver.

The fishing is made on the Erfalik River, sometimes in inlets and outlets of the lakes, sometimes in the fjord for cod or fresh chars heading for the river mouth.

 

Travelling here

You will need to fly first to Copenhagen, Denmark and then fly to Kangerlussuaq, Greenland; that's 4,5 from Copenhagen and then a short domestic flight of 30 min. to Sisimiut.

Then you will take a boat to get to the Lodge.

Accommodation

You will stay at this lodge build in 2019, a brand new lodge.

Sleeping in cabins with bunk beds, they are pretty small but you can have a single room with plenty of space for your stuff.

This lodge has a comfortable dining area, big couches and a large porch. Overlooking the fjord and the rivermouth.

Internet and cell service:

There is no internet service while there is cell service,but its not the best.

Cuisine

Meals are tasty and made with the “Swedish chef’s” dedication. 

Most nights, they will prepare a nice three course meal, though variations on the dessert theme are fairly limited. 

Breakfast will be egg, bacon, bread, cereals etc, And for lunch, they put out bread and topping so you can make a couple of sandwiches to keep you going throughout the day.


The fishing

Fishing is rarely hard and there is no need to have a guide watch over your shoulder all day long. Once you have had an introduction to the fishery most anglers are fine about fishing with one or two other guests, and sometimes ask assistance from one of the young guides if they want an introduction to a new area.

The fishing is on a walk-in basis, so to get the full benefit of the possibilities, anglers should be reasonably fit. The terrain is easy to hike in but you should be prepared to cover a total four to eight miles on most days. If you need a break during your week, you can fish the river mouth on an incoming tide, or get one of the guides to drop you off on the other side of the lake and fish the inlet and outlet.

How do the fish?

Its typically either swinging streamers, skating foam flies or sometimes nymping. While some methods are more productive than others.

Nothing beats catching the chars on foam flies skated across the surface. Other times, you can sight fish them with smaller streamers. And when you really need a pull, swinging a weighted streamer or fishing a nymph can usually get it done.

Gear and equipment

*The lodge does not provide equipment.*

Rods: A nine foot six weight, preferably with a fight butt. A fie weight with some back one will do as well. Bring two rods, in case of breakage.

Flies: Foam flies and streamers. We provide a Pre Trip Planner with detailed information on flies.


Season

The season is during July and August. 

The species we flyfish at this lodge, artic char, starts to run the rivers late June, also early in Sptember but they should probably be left alone because they become more interesting in spawening.
