By Invitation Only
The Napiarissat River isn’t for everyone. Not because it’s challenging to fish, or the hiking is tough – the fishing is spectacular and the hiking couldn’t be easier. It’s a river booked by one group at a time so if you meet someone on the river they’re your friends and if you want a little solitude there’s more than enough water to find it.
Little fished water and a very productive river
The fishing grounds are from two minutes to two hours from the camp. Most of the time a 30 minute walk gets anglers to the most productive parts of the river. During an incoming tide, fresh Arctic char can be caught as they pass through the tidal sea pool next to camp. Some fish will hold here for a while, but most will continue their journey upriver, where they have several kilometres to spread out before they reach a waterfall. Fishing continues above the waterfall with clear water offering additional opportunities for sight fishing. The fishing is typically either swinging streamers, skating foam flies or sometimes nymphing. Because Napiarissat is booked mainly for private, smaller groups it sees less fishing pressure than other prolific rivers in Greenland. If wading is required the water is never more than knee-deep so this is easily accomplished.
Camp perfectly situated for fishing
The camp is located close to the river mouth and comprises individual guest tents and a big steel framed dining tent for dining and socialising. The chef prepares tasty meals and guests are often amazed at what can be produced when taking into consideration the remoteness of the location.
Remote riverside location
Camp Napiarissat is located near Sisimiut on the south west coast of Greenland. Anglers fly from Copenhagen in Denmark to Kangerlussuaq in Greenland, a flight of approximately four and half hours, and then take a short domestic flight of 30 minutes to Sisimiut. After a night spent here guests are transferred to the lodge by boat which takes approximately two and a half hours.
