- Our best place for trout fishing
- Rough but well equipped accomodation
- Our most popular area for mountain lake fishing
The Kalvvatn region is known to be one of the best spots for mountain-trout Fishing in the middle part of Norway. Before the road came, this area was very difficult to reach, and has, even after the building of the dam, lost little of its original wilderness. The construction road is closed for all traffic except for our guests, the Lap people and for people supervising the dam. Here you really feel you have left civilization behind to experience true wilderness.
The boat in Kalvvatnet makes it easy to get to the northern part of the area. The season starts at the beginning of July. For the northern and higher lakes, the best Fishing is in August and September.
Our guests have the right to fish in the whole drainage basin down to (including) Mellavatn. Here you will find almost endless possibilities for good and varied fishing. There are many different lakes, and also running water, that many of our guests have found ideal for fly fishing.
This is an ultra-oligotrof area (low nutrient content in the lakes). This selects for predator community in some of the lakes, which can give large sized trouts. Although rare, trouts up to 4 kg have been caught. In total, there are about 15-20 different lakes with high quality trout in the area.
In the power regulated large lake Kalvvatn (500 meters amsl), and in Ringvatna (595-615 meters amsl), the spawning conditions are bad, and the number of fish in the lake are few. The fish you catch there, however, is of good size and quality.
Generally you will find the best Fishing in Faatnoenjaevrie (594 meters amsl), Holmvatnet (532 meters amsl), Brennelvområdet and Kalvvassfjellet. In this last region, there are several lakes and tarns with fishing of the highest quality.
The Kalvvatn-area lies far into the mountains. This 40 000 acres large area is let out with exclusive rights for our guests. Here you can spend undisturbed time with your friends. You will only meet laps herding their reindeer. This is a wonderful place to spend a week in the high mountains, fishing from lake to lake, and it is one of our best grouse hunting areas.
This cabin is very small and simple, it is originally a boat house, built in connection with the dam construction. It is insulated, and can house 2-4 people, a sami tent offers more places if necessary. Even if it is primitive, this boat house has a propane burner that makes cooking easy. Drinking water just outside the door! This is one of the simplest, and many will find it the most exclusive, lodgings on the estate!
The cabin lies close to a dam for hydroelectric power. The area is therefore not “untouched” as the other parts of the estate. The Kalvvatn lake has a regulation zone, but holds good size fish, and is also used for easy transportation to many of the surrounding lakes.
