The Story

Join Orvis on a group trip to Quebec in August 2022, for an expedition into the heart of some of the world’s best fly-fishing locations for anadromous Arctic char, Atlantic salmon, and brook trout in the Far North of the Quebec-Labrador Peninsula.

Enjoy well-appointed accommodations at Wedge Hills Lodge on the mighty George River, as well as at our new Arctic Safari Eco-Lodge within proximity to magnificent rivers along the coast of the Labrador Sea. Throughout the expedition, guests will experience the grandiose landscapes of the southern Arctic Cordillera and the Torngat Mountains, and may even see wildlife such as caribou, wolves, and polar bears.

This ethereal region possesses some of the most spectacular fly-fishing opportunities and scenery on the planet and is virtually uninhabited by humans, making it an ideal escape for fishermen and adventure seekers alike.

  • Region where nature is untouched and wild
  • Migrating Arctic char, Atlantic salmon and brook trout in streams and rivers
  • Possibility of seeing wildlife such as polar bears, black bears, wolves, and caribou
  • The grandiose landscape of the Arctic Cordillera, the Torngat Mountains, and icebergs
  • A comfortable base camp site in an extremely remote area
  • Luxury lodge accommodations, facilities, and meals
  • Scenic floatplane excursions

DAY 1: Montréal - Wedge Hills Lodge
Depart from a small charter terminal in Montreal and arrive at Wedge Hills Lodge around noon to be welcomed by the owner-manager and meet with your travel guide.
Enjoy a welcome cocktail and presentation of the program for the coming days.
Next, head out on the George River to fish for brook trout for the rest of the afternoon.
Dinner and overnight at the lodge.


DAY 2 and DAY 3: Four guests will head out to fish for Atlantic salmon, brook trout, and lake trout on the George River, and four guests will depart by floatplane for the Arctic Safari Eco-Lodge.


DAY 4 and DAY 5: After two days of adventure, each group of four will switch locations.
During the two days at the Eco-Lodge, guests will enjoy flying out by floatplane to locations along the Labrador coast to fish for Arctic char and brook trout, as well as make stops at scenic locations to admire the picturesque northern landscapes and wildlife.

With high snow-covered mountains, fjords, and icebergs, the southern eco zone of the Arctic Cordillera is a powerful natural barrier that stretches over 400 km (about 248 miles) from north to south.
We will make stops at different rivers within this eco zone along our tour route where Arctic char migrate.


DAY 6: All guests will spend the day on the George River at Wedge Hills Lodge for some well-deserved comfort and to fish the George River for Atlantic salmon, brook trout, and lake trout. The first run of Atlantic salmon typically arrives within the Wedge Hills Lodge territory between August 7th and August 15th. Normally the larger males arrive first, so anglers will have the opportunity to test the waters for the real “King of the River.”


Day 7: Return to Montreal
Breakfast at the lodge. Return to Montreal.

Wedge Hills Lodge, founded in 1960, sits perched on a hilltop overlooking the majestic George River just above the 57th parallel north in Nunavik, Québec. Nestled in a bay and sheltered from the strong current of the river, the strategic placement of the lodge offers spectacular views of the river and surrounding mountains, as well as protection from the strong northern winds.


Accessible only by air, the facilities at Wedge Hills Lodge underwent extensive renovations in 2018 and 2019 in order to serve our guests to the highest standards possible in such a remote area. To put things in perspective, the city center of Montréal is 882 miles away. That's out there!


Two of the days will be spent at the Arctic Safari Eco-Lodge in an all-inclusive setting (double occupancy in a 20-foot geodesic dome).

Fly fishing for Arctic Char, Atlantic salmon, and brook trout, nature discovery, excursions by floatplane, and hiking.
