A river with an unrivalled reputation in Norway, it is considered to be a fly fisherman’s Eldorado!The many and varied sectors, combined with limited fly fishing, will give you plenty of opportunities to catch this river’s king fish, Thymalus thymalus (common grayling). And don’t forget the trout. The numerous tributaries are there to offer you their most beautiful surprises, some of which are quite surprising, or even unforgettable!

This river’s grayling population is no myth. It is considered to be one of the largest in Norway. The average size of a grayling is around 40 cm. The high density of fish provides a unique opportunity to tackle dry, nymph and drowned fishing techniques with confidence.

The quality of this river, meandering through a non-agricultural environment, combined with a human population density well below our benchmarks, provides ideal conditions for the development of aquatic insects. The large number of larvae and nymphs evolving in the river encourages the growth and prosperity of salmonids, trout and grayling, transforming each of your fishing trips into unforgettable moments.

Each fishing sector through its diversity is an opportunity to renew your knowledge and increase your technical skills.

  • Beginners, experienced anglers, we want to share with you, in an ideal setting our fishing practice. Each of the situations will lead you to perfect your fishing technique, over the opportunities offered by the Glomma. And there are plenty of them.
  • We’ve been living in this wilderness for so long that it permeates our habits. We’ll bring you a little closer to it, every day you spend with us. Our vocation is to share with you the Norwegian Escapade spirit. To pass on to you our visceral need to enjoy every moment we have with Mother Nature. Fishing is just one way to get away from it all, stopping for a moment by a log fire another.

  • The lake a resting place in the middle of nowhere that like every place you come across in Norway harbours an element of mystery. Pike, perch and grayling, and yes you read that right grayling, are plentiful. One more way to spend a little time there and forget all the little hassles of life.
  • Norway is a very welcoming country, it’s hard to get in! You might as well know before you pack your suitcase to come and join us. An informed man is worth two.

Fishing tackle for Norway


Whip fly fishing is the most effective on the routes we offer.


The typical fly rod is a 9 footer for a 4/5 line, but a 10 footer is also very suitable, particularly for nymph fishing with thread. For those who want to try their hand at lake or streamer fishing, and also for larger trout, a 7-power tank rod will do the trick. In this case, use a reel with a plunging line or, better still, a “versi tip” line, i.e. with several interchangeable tips of different densities. For pike, you can also use a set of 8 to 10 gauge line.

Leaders should be long enough, 1.5 times the rod length, and end with 14/16 tips for dry fishing, sometimes 12 hundredths but very rarely 10. You can fish in 14 or even 16/18 hundredths for nymphing with line and reel!

In some parts of these rivers and on many lakes, it is also possible to fish for beautiful pike. In this case, a strong nylon such as 80/100 hundredths or a steel leader with a large streamer will do the trick.



Large deer sedges such as the Elk Hair Caddis or the Goddard Caddis, mounted on 12 and 10 hooks are excellent for evening shots and in 14/16 during the day.

Duck asses in shades ranging from green to brown via black and yellow and in sizes from 12 to 20 are excellent during the day depending on the hatch. Big flies that float well like parachutes are often caught without a second thought in currents. Classics such as hare’s ears, CDCs and a few chironomid imitations in black, olive and brown also give good results on small streams and lakes.

In nymphs

The big gold helmets pheasant tail and ears of hare in number 12 are well accepted in the currents. Less weighted nymfes are interesting for prospecting the edges and on the big smooths as well as some olive and brown gammares. As a general rule, a small assortment of gold helmets from 2 to 4.5mm will allow you to fish everywhere. A few casters and double balls will complete your outfit and allow you to fish the most powerful currents.

Drowning and streamer

The flies are quite full and the olive, beige and black colours are excellent. On the lake, which is 5 minutes from the farm, adult and emerging sedge imitations are well suited. Black, white and orange rabbit streamers are of interest to large fario! For pike, 4/0 or 6/0 tandem flies and large pink, orange, green and white streamers are excellent. For the more sporty, a few large 4/0 poppers for tropical sea fishing can give you some incredible surface attacks!


It’s advisable to pack a good wading jacket to keep out the rain, as well as warm clothing such as fleece, a hat and gloves – in short, the usual outfit for Nordic countries, where the climate can change, even in summer. Because the weather can be very fine and very bad in the same day!

Neoprene waders are not essential, so opt instead for breathable fishing trousers and fleece underwear, which are more comfortable to wear and make walking easier. When it comes to wading boots, felt soles with studs work best on all types of terrain. Don’t forget to pack a good pair of polarised sunglasses and a cap. A good mosquito spray is essential. And if you really fear these insects, a mosquito net placed over your cap will protect you completely. Products such as 5 sur 5 or insect screen will protect you,

Alternatively, we sell a very effective local product based on essential oils.


Depending on the year and snow conditions, fishing starts around mid-June and remains good until early October, particularly for dry grayling. July/August and September are the best months to fish for the three main species: grayling, trout and pike.


Fishing is done on foot, mainly with dry flies, although nymphing with a line also gives good results. Sight nymphing is possible on sunny days in certain well-defined areas. Every day you will have the opportunity to catch grayling over 45 cm and trophies over 50 cm are nothing exceptional here.

The fastest parts of the river are home to large fario up to over 5 kg, which can be caught with a streamer. The secondary and calmer stretches of the river are good spots for pike, and we saw some over 85 cm lying on the bottom after swallowing a grayling. In particular, there is a very good pike lake with fish over a metre long just a 5-minute walk from your accommodation.

Merveilleuse athmosphere dans un paysage sauvage et paisible. Réception admirable de passion par Stéphanie, Jean-Philippe et leur petite Sophie. On reviendra une 4eme fois !
Escapade Norvégienne is the peace and serenity you need without even knowing it. It’s a quaint and charming place in an otherwise very unpopulated area and it gives you toasty warm cabin vibes as soon as you arrive. Make sure to take a trip down to the lake and borrow a canoe to go visit the mossy island in the middle. You’ll find the epicenter of peace and serenity on the quiet shores of this little island. The gastronomical highlight of the stay was the breakfast the next morning! Homemade croissants, curtesy of our French hostess, garden picked strawberries, freshly baked bread and a selection of meats and cheeses. The coffee was delicious too - but almost not needed after the amazing night of sleep and the soul-recharge this place gives.

Wonderful hosts, beautiful location with unique Norwegian scenery. It's like taking a trip back in time, to a simple and beautiful life. They have their own hens( means fresh and amazing eggs for breakfast) and their own dogsled dogs available for trips. If you want to Explore the beautiful nature in Norway, with perfect guides this is the place. You can even get a own guide for a custom made fishing trip. The french cuisine from the lovely hostess is AMAZING, a must try! Great value for money. Best place to stay in Tolga.
The perfect hideaway, in serene beautiful nature with a homemade breakfast to die for ☺I had been on a long roadtrip already, including several workshops (I am a photographer), and was just dog tired and wanted to rest for one night, and then driving from Røros I found this place close to the border, less than one hour away. It is beautifully situated, in serene nature, and although close to Røros, it is the perfect hideaway. Run by a French couple that have found their piece of paradise, running a husky farm among other things. It is an old farm, with hundreds of years of history in its walls, and huge comfortable beds, tough to wake up from. I am not a breakfast person, but Stephanié made the best brunch I have had in a very long time, with fresh home made sourdough bread, wonderful French omelette, cheese, cured meats, lingonberries +++, and all just for me! That meal alone was worth it, so my only complaint is that I couldn't stay longer.
Gezellige cabin met een verrassend uitzicht ☺De accommodatie ligt op een geweldige plek. De gastvrouw en haar dochter waren zeer vriendelijk. We hebben genoten van het heerlijke ontbijt.
☺woonkamer met houtkachel en uitzicht zeer vriendelijke eigenaresse. ☹toilet is buitenom. In de nacht met vrieskou en sneeuw niet zo comfortabel.
☺Hyggeligt sted, dejlig natur, sød værtinde.
Fairytale ☺Fantastic location, amazing fairytale howling sounds from the sledge dogs. The host was helpful to find us another location on our way back, since theirs was full booked, but we unfortunately could not answer due to the lack of reception in the woods. Sorry for that and we are grateful for your help! ☹Everything was perfect.
Anbefales ☺Veldig god service og nydelig sted! Anbefales
