We are proud to announce that our Swiss guests now also have the possibility to book complete packages including flights, rental car etc. via Andino Reisen.
Andino Reisen is a member of the STAR Association and are affiliated to the guarantee fund of Swiss Travel Security. In addition, they are a member of the Swiss Travel Agency Association.
You benefit is that your deposited funds are ensured. This insurance is compulsory in Switzerland, but unfortunately not all travel agencies have this customer protection. Ask for this insurance with each booking at the travel agency – otherwise there is a risk that you pay your vacation twice. By using Andino Reisen you are well protected.
Andino Reisen managing director Rolf Häuptli has fished in Skålestrømmen and was fascinated by the possibilities and the fact that we are a “trout and Arctic char only” destination.
The amazing Sami culture.
…. just 20km from Skålestrømmen one can find a totally different world.
Here are some impressions of the reindeer round up I was allowed to see.
In the center of the herd you can make out some big males. The rest of the animals is circulating around them, which is mesmerizing to watch.
Reindeer herding is an ancient and fascinating way of life. I so hope these traditions and culture will survive in our mad technological world.
Thanks a lot to @amokequipment for their nice products. We invested in a few more of their fantastic DRAUMR hammocks so you can also sleep “under the stars”, which honestly is bit little difficult in summer as it does not get dark here in the North. Anyways, you have the sky above you and very fresh air. You can hear and see the moose pretty close. Do not be afraid. The moose, even it is a big animal is scared of humans and runs when you make a noise. So hush hush 😉
Last week we had Dave, Chris and Gareth from Wales visiting Skålestrømmen. We had tons of fun together I am very happy that Dave caught his dream fish – actually he kept doing it for the rest of the week. Catching char on dry fliy in the night is something very special. Dave fishes with the fly since about 4 month and it was a pleasure to watch him improve so quickly. Meditation is of course a part of the “education” 😉 … he also learned to row a boat and cook proper “kokkekaffe”.
