Salmon fishing

Enjoyable salmon fishing in Orkla

In one of Norway’s best salmon rivers, Orkla, we find Bårdshaug Manor’s private fishing beats Fandrem 1 and Gjelørene. The beats are located 3 km from the hotel in scenic surroundings, and the generous riverbank is furnished with a shelter and benches. Here, we are happy to tailor arrangements for you or your group. An evening by the river can be just the pleasant break in the fresh air that completes your stay here at Bårdshaug Manor.

Fandrem 1 and Gjelørene are two-sided and accessible by car on both sides. The size of the beats and the width of the river make it suitable for up to 6 anglers. For our guests fishing on the beats while staying at the hotel, we have the option to arrange firewood for a campfire and a charcoal grill with accessories for an additional fee, ensuring everything is set for a great outdoor experience. We also offer take-away and catering services to the beats for guests staying on-site.

Perhaps you’d like to enlist the services of a “local guide” who can lead the way, assist with equipment, handle the fish, capture moments with photographs, and provide insights into the river and Orkland.

We provide you with a non-binding offer for a river experience tailored to your preferences
