Namdalen Wilderness Lodge is located next to “langfjordvannet” a freashwater lake with an abundance of fish, This Lodge is a perfect location for fresh water fishing in Finnmark.

Imagine sitting around the open fire enjoying the midnightsun after catching the largest pike. Or the tension and exitement from sitting on the frozen lake in wintertime waiting for the trout to bite and the northern lights on the sky above. Namdalen Wilderness lodge is a beautiful place for fishing in spring, summer, autumn and winter.



Namdalen is perfect located in the Pasvik-area, the border area between Norway an Russia. Twenty kilometers south of Kirkenes (main regional city). There is a calmness and quietness in the midst of the forest, far away from the stress of the big cities and no traffic. Langfjordvannet is a rich lake vith 11 different species of fish. There is plenty of pike, grayling and trout. Short distance to the fjord for fishing in salt water. Catch large cod, halibut or the tasty King crab. In the immediate surroundings there is rivers and a abundance of smaller lakes also with fish waiting to bite. A few kilometers to the east lies Russia and ca 30 kilometers to the west is Finland.
