Why fishing in Greenland is bucket list material

Greenland is by far the wildest place on earth for char fishing where there are thousands of rivers and lakes, full of Arctic Char. Because of the enormous territory and relatively few inhabitants in Greenland, many of these fishing areas are hardly fished at all and some rivers have not seen an angler – ever.


I have never experienced such high volume catches as in Greenland where the fishing is mostly light tackle and the size of the fish is 1-7 lbs and plenty of it.

Every day was a new adventure in Greenland as we experienced new locations with breathtaking nature. We took the boat up to different rivers passing little waterfalls, long narrow rivers with crystal clear water, icebergs and glaciers that made even the biggest person seem small.

The river mouths are often very productive when the char runs up the rivers and the lakes that are connected to the ocean, by clear rivers, provide the best fishing but the fjords are also extremely productive in the early part of the season. The char starts to gather in the fjords near the river mouths in the end of June and begin to move into the rivers in the beginning of July…… where I will gladly greet them!campur
_DSC4402I went last July and am going again this 12-16th July 2016 to Greenland fishing, this is the time when the biggest and freshest Searun Arctic Char is arriving to the rivers with fish running every day. There are now 4 rods left for that trip.
