In 2016 season Varzina Riviver Lodge underwent a number of serious changes and was almost rebuilt.
The restaurant and lounge bar.
The new design a la Nord Art-Nouveau implies an absolutely new vision of the modern fishing lodge interior decoration. Now, guests will have breakfast and dinner savoring dishes of haute cuisine, in a superb dining room with a fireplace and panoramic windows. After dinner they may relax in a spacious lounge bar with a fabulous view of Varzina’s Home pool. There is a great variety of white and red wines, traditional hard liquors, draft beer and a taste collection of single malt Scotch whisky at the bar.
Also for billiards fans, there is a full-sized 8-ball pool table.
The lounge bar can be easily transformed in to a cozy screening room for watching any major sporting events or presentations on a 135” screen with Dolby Digital Surround Sound. For those who prefer shifting away from the bustle, can get a sense of peace and meditative union with nature on our newly reconstructed charming open patio. It has been designed to be more spacious and more comfortable. It’s a great place to sit for a cup of coffee in the morning or digestive in the evening, whilst watching the jumps of fresh- run springers.
If necessary, guests may replenish their fly box or gear at our fly shop. They may also buy some clothes with our logo image, in memory of their trip. Satellite connection and Internet are at guests’ disposal.
The lounge bar is equipped with bathroom.
Accommodation. Starting from the 2016 season guests are offered single accommodation in a deluxe cabin. All cabins have undergone a quality reconstruction. Now, each of them are equipped with an individual toilet and shower, electric heating, conditioner with climate control, mini-bar, personal safe, drying closet for wet clothes and lots of other stuff needed for comfort like hairdryer, bathrobe and slippers. Cabins are heat-insulated, equipped with spacious wardrobes and wide beds with orthopedic mattresses.
Thanks to the minimum number of guests in the Lodge, it obtained a very distinctive and friendly atmosphere. The Lodge and the river are not overburdened by excessive human pressure, which in these deserted places seems to us quite harmonious. Varzina and Penka flow in an absolutely deserted area, outside any human settlements and roads. You can get there from Murmansk only by helicopter. There is no poaching on the river, as well as any other anthropogenic influence. The fisherman gets the water on the pool for individual use, and shares the table in the Lodge only with other five fly-fishing enthusiasts, who appreciate such wild corners of our planet. Despite the remoteness of civilization, we tried to make staying in the Lodge as comfortable as possible, and the atmosphere in it is cozy. We hope you appreciate it!
