Trip Info

Have the trip of a lifetime as you venture into the back country of the region for an exciting fly fishing adventure! This tour goes the extra mile, literally, as the only accessible route is by ATV or helicopter. A four-wheel drive vehicle can also be used, however, they do have some limitations on certain terrain and a great dealing of walking is required. A preferred ride is the ATV. It is best to take the extra time to drive for the spectacular mountain scenery alone.

You will be transported to some of the country’s finest small alpine rivers and clear spring creeks. Although the lower reaches of the region tend to contain a higher number of fish, the ones caught here are spectacular! And with the location being unspoiled due to the remoteness, you will have the most tranquil and pleasant fishing trip.

With the extra time it takes to reach the destinations, you can opt to book accommodation near our headquarters. There are many quaint bed & breakfasts inns, lodges, farm stays and a hotel.
