At Valdøyan/Valdum lodge you can live in cabins or rooms only a few meters from the river. We can offer two large cabins with private bathrooms. There are also simpler cabins available that includes bedroom, kitchen and shared modern bathroom facilities.
By request you can use the barbeque-cabin in the evenings.
Fishing season: June 1st–August 31st
The Valdøyan/Valdum’s beat (approximately 1 mile) is one of the most prolific on the river and fishes very well throughout the season.
The first part of the season, 1 June till the beginning of July, normally sees the largest fish. Medium size salmon and grilse start to come through during the end of June and continue till the end of August. August can also see the challenge of some big cock salmon coming through for the spawning season.
