  • Exclusive fishing for sea trout, salmon and sea run char

    The Urvold watercourse undoubtedly has one of the thickest spawning stocks of sea trout in Norway. The fish are caught mainly in Urvoldvatnet and in the river where it flows out to the fjord. This is a sea trout watercourse with some small salmon and where the river is most suitable for a one-handed fly-fishing rod or a lure/spinner. The watercourse is Norway’s southernmost that has a stable arctic char stock.

    There is also good fishing in the fjord right outside the cabin door, and for those who would like an excursion, fishing rights are valid in the whole of Reppamarka and Terråkmarka, so it is possible to go on a mountain hike to the good mountain trout waters.

  • Simple yet functional cabin for 4 people

    The cabin is approx. 35 m2 and is conveniently fitted out. The living room has bunk beds for 4 persons. There is a wood fire, ktichen corner with propane stove with oven, propane fridge and all necessary equipment. There is a separate shower room with propane heater for water.

  • Beautifully situated by the fjord – unique fishing possibilities

    Urvold watercourse is protected because of its unique geography, its undisturbed nature and its rich population of sea trout and salmon. In many ways this location is similar to Sagmestereidet.

    The cabin is situated in magnificent nature at the outlet to the fjord and is reached directly by boat (approx. 15 mins). The location is suitable for 2–4 persons.


Sea trout, salmon and sea run char

The anadromous part of the Urvold watercourse consists of the Ureidelven river which connects the fjord with the 2km long Urvold lake and approx. 1.5km of upper river.

Guests at Ureidet have exclusive fishing right to “their” side (northern) of the Ureidelven river and the river mouth down in the fjord. The fishing right in lake Urvold is shared with the guests at Urvold. The upper river is exclusive to guests at Urvold.

For the most part the lower river is swift and consists of rapids and small pools. On higher water levels some of these pools can be fished. The river mouth is a real hot spot. The same goes for the outlet of lake Urvold. The water course consists mostly of sea trout, but also salmon and sea run char. The char is often caught in end of June, early July.

In the 2km long lake Urvoldvatn the fishing is consistently good throughout the season. Trolling with both lures and flies is effective, but conventional fly/spin fishing from boat or shore is also good. It is approx. 5min walking distance to the lake. We recommend a brown monofilament e.g. maxima chameleon.

Guests at Ureidet also have fishing right in the Terråk river which runs right through the town. The combination of a trip to the grocery store for supplies and a fishing trip is recommended.

You can even go fishing in river Åelva, one of the region’s best salmon rivers. Fishing licence can be arranged.

Fjord fishing

The Fishing in the fjord is normally good. You can either fish from land at the outlet of the Ureide river, or you can drive to Helstadløkka (20 minutes) and rent a boat there. We can also arrange a cruise on the fjord with experienced fishermen.

Trout and arctic char

In the area around Urvold, there are many good lakes for trout Fishing. Some of the lakes are easy to reach, others are further away. It is possible to use a primitive hut at Reppavatn to better explore the inner parts of the area. Since there is only one cabin in the area, and our guests at Urvold often only go after Sea trout and salmon, the area has a very low strain.

History of Urvold and Ureidet


Urvold was an isolated farm till the road was built many years after the last family moved from there. The tenants at Urvold only had paths to walk on, about 10 km to Åbygda. But during summer-time, when they could row across Ureidvatn, they only had a short way to the fjord and to the farmers at Ureidet.

The last tenants to live here came from Reppen around 1912. Since then the farm Reppen has been abandoned. They were two brothers from Trøndelag, Bernhard and Jørgen Urvold, known for being very strong but modest men.


During WW I, some ore was to be carried from a prospect 2-3 km in the mountains in very hilly and difficult terrain down to a ship that was waiting in the fjord. Bernhard and Jørgen took on this job, and the burdens were weighed afterwards. Bernhard had carried 105 kg, his «little brother» Jørgen 95 kg. Bernhard told that he during the winter of 1917 drove 11.000 logs to the Urvold water system, and it took him two summers to get them floated down to the fjord.

During WW II a dramatic event took place at Urvold. Some people from a resistancce cell (from company Linge) ran from the Germans after a battle with shooting at Majavatn. They took shelter in the farmhouse at Urvold, but the police deputy and his assistant got the message about this, and came there, to capture the resistance men. The resistance men were afraid to fall in the hands of the Germans, and shot both the deputy and his assistant and later managed to flee to safety in Sweden. While the old farmhouse was still standing there, on the site of the new cabin, you could see the holes from the bullets in the wall in the entrance hall and in the kitchen. The old farmhouse was taken down and rebuilt as shelters along the path in Terråkmarka, if you go up to Fugleburet you will see them. Not unlikely you might find the holes from the bullets in some of the logs.


The farm Ureidet lay at the outlet of the river into the fjord. The last tenants were Jørgen and Alvilde Urvold. During WW II they cut the hay in Reppen, 7-8 km away in hilly and difficult terrain for transport. They had no horse on the farm, and therefore had to drag the hay on a sledge when it was possible to cross the lakes on the ice. It is a mystery how they managed to take the sledge down the steep and difficult terrain with no paths, but they managed. During the war they had to take care of everything possible to survive.
