The Kola Peninsula is the northernmost territory of European Russia, situated north of the 66th Parallel. The Kola Peninsula boasts more than 130.000 lakes and rivers. The rivers are an important habitat for the Atlantic salmon, which return from Greenland and the Faroe Islands to spawn in fresh water. As a result of this, a recreational fishery has been developed, with a number of remote lodges and camps available to host sport-fishermen.
The Atlantic Salmon sport fishing program of Kola Travel is mainly based on the South coast of the Kola Peninsula and in particular on the Umba and Varzuga rivers. Coming close to nature and away from civilization you can enjoy excellent fishing and get a truly unforgettable experience on the number of fish that passes along these rivers. Having been here once, you will not wish to look for a better place. The Umba and Varzuga river shores are a fishing paradise for both amateur and professional fishermen. Experienced guides will show you the best place for the great fishing. The fishing is based on “Catch and release”. The fishing camps at Umba River and Varzuga River possess several advantages:
