Salmon Fishing in Norway - a pilgrimage for anglers?

Just as Catholics flock to Lourdes, Buddhists break for Borobudur and Muslims make their way to Mecca, if you’re a European angler, then you simply must make the pilgrimage to Norway’s rivers at least once in this lifetime...

Famous around the world for its salmon-rich waters, fishermen have been flocking to Norway’s unspoilt country and dramatic landscape since the mid-nineteenth century and with the Norwegian fishing season running only from June - August, this might be your only angle(!)

Is this Scandinavia's best salmon fishing adventure? 

Or are there plenty of other fish in the sea? Your base will be the secluded Aunan Lodge, nestled in a beautifully tranquil valley on the Orkla River in Rennebu, an hour south of Trondheim. Your seven summer days will be spent happily, patiently and lazily fishing on one of twelve unique pools spread over more than three miles. With one guide per six anglers, their expert tactical and technical advice will help you land that 40lb beast! Your evenings at the lodge will be spent laughing by the lodge fire, drinking fine whiskies and telling tales of “the one that got away” (that’s fish and ex-girlfriends/boyfriends!) to your fellow fishermen friends.
