Winter fishing on the kama river near  OrelVariant on this trip: WINTER FISHING on Kama near the town of Orel (extra day). Orel is a small village that lies not far from the road from Perm to Vailand. The village is famous for its fishing possibilities. Just north of Orel, the large Yaiva river joins the Kama and so do both rivers' specific species of fish. The latter makes Orel a unique place for fishing as nowhere else it is possible to fish for a similar diversity of fish. In this variant, day 1 will be replaced by the following initinerary - leaving Perm very early (around 6am) in order to be in Orel by 8am; fishing is usually most successful in the morning, when fish is hungry! 15 kms over the ice will be completed by very fast snowjets (imported from Canada) to a spot where the Kama is narrow, improving chances of catching many fish! A warm lunch on the ice will be offered around noon. We will stay on the ice until 3pm. After going back to Orel on the snow jets, we will continue our way to Vailand where dinner will be awaiting you. The rest of the program stays unchanged. This variant is possible from October until end of March.

Legal matters about hunting in Russia.
Hunting in Russia requires a special hunting licence, which we can arrange for you upon your booking. The price of this licence varies from 10 to 30 euro, depending on the game. The use of guns is a somewhat complicated issue, as the formal regulations around this matter have been subject to frequent changes over the past years. By law, it is forbidden to use nor carry fire arms which are not explicitly registered to you, meaning that it is impossible for you to rent a weapon in Russia. However, licences have been known to be issued by exception. All above hunting bases offer a range of hunting rifles. If you wish to bring your own rifle, you have to apply for a special clearance (through us), specifying all the details about weapon and ammunition. Groups of hunters from Europe and America brought their hunting equipment to Perm before without any problems. Please note that the application for clearance has to be done well in advance. Furthermore, if you are planning to ship trophies out of Russia to your home country, the Russian customs need a release note for shipment. In principle, we can arrange this note for you without any problems. We strongly advise you to contact us about the matters well in advance to ensure your hunting trip to be a smooth one without any legal problems!
