Oliver Rampley, the Florence-based Brit behind exclusive hunting-birding-fishing outfit Altana Europe (altanaeurope.com), is one of Italy’s most informed guides, with a portfolio of impressive private accommodations. Lately, he’s been deep in northwest Canada, recce-ing prime spots for trout, Arctic grayling and northern pike fishing. It’s preparation for a week-long trip he’ll lead in August 2019 (from €7,500 per person full board), to include a stay at a remote (but eminently comfortable) lodge, and six days – three helicopter-assisted – in cinematically picturesque, empty tundra, fly fishing what is effectively virgin territory (and with bear, wolf, Arctic fox and caribou sightings likely). Places are extremely tight; secure yours early.
