FENSALIR LODGES
of Mauritia.

Mauritia Kirchner is a fly fisherwoman.
 
And only the passionate fisherman knows what that means: harmony between animals and nature, communication between people and land, understanding of culture and history.

More than 20 years ago, the Faroe Islands have become the second home of Mauritia. Since then, she has been regarded as a pioneer of respectful fishing tourism on the Isles and a first point of contact for interested travellers.

She supports the press and media representatives as a competent contact person.

As landlady of Lodge "Heimi í Stovu" and Lodge Gimle she will always be at your side whenever you need information or any kind of support concerning fly fishing on the Faroe Islands.

PARENTHOUSE, GERHARDSHOFEN , DEUTSCHLAND
–1978

Growing up in a parsonage with seven sisters and brothers, her childhood was influenced by life in untouched nature in the middle of the river and lake districts of Middle Franconia.

The "hunting gene" is certainly from her great-grandfather, a full-time hunter in the service of the Silesian nobility.
