Arctic char fishing in Greenland


Iceland Outfitters offers fly fishing for Arctic char in Greenland

Arctic Char fishing in Greenland is one of the most enjoyable experiences you can have in the Arctic circle, The rivers are full of Arctic char and the scenery is truly stunning, Greenland is covered by a large glacier and in almost every fjord you can see it creeping its way down to the ocean where large icebergs the sizes of big blocks are floating, making it a remarkable sight.

Even with the icebergs floating around you will be surprised by the mild climate, as during the summer the weather in South Greenland is similar to the weather in Oslo and Helsinki. Greenland is a magnificent and rustic land with warm and wonderful people and is most definitely a must see for all nature lovers.
