Spend these four days fishing from a boat or the bank and relaxing. The indigenous people of Orochi have inhabited this land for ages, and you may even see their small handmade boats going up and down the river while fishing. Have your camera handy, as you will definitely want to take a picture when you pull out Sakhalin taimen weighing up to 80 pounds or a 15-pound cherry salmon. The lodge has a Siberian banya (sauna), a dining room, and an electric generator. It may lack the conveniences of a modern hotel, but it certainly has the rough Far-Eastern charm and the pristine surroundings to compensate.
Helping You Prepare
If you have a special medical condition, please bring it to the attention of your reservation agent before booking this trip. The tour takes you to a remote location where qualified medical help may not be easily accessible. Bring along any medications that you may need for minor conditions, such as a cold or headache. The lodge has a first aid kit, but you may still want to bring the items you are most used to.
While on this trip, you may not be able to maintain contact with your family back home. However, you may leave the Red Star Travel telephone number with them and we will help them reach you should an emergency situation arise.
Since you will be spending a lot of time outdoors on this trip, be sure to bring warm and waterproof clothes in case it rains. Nighttime temperatures during the season are usually 40-50 F, and daytime highs usually reach 60-78 F.
The fish you catch on the trip may be prepared by the lodge cook according to your tastes. Bring along your favorite fish recipes and see if the group’s cook can recreate them with your catch, but don’t forget to convert pounds and ounces into kilograms and grams to avoid confusion.
