Fishing in Norway

If you are eager to experience Norway’s culture and identity at its fullest, fishing is an activity you would definitely want to cross off your list. Norway’s exquisite coastline, beautiful fjords and rugged scenery in the north serves for a magical fishing experience.

In fact, Norway has a fishing culture spanning over a thousand years, where we have perfected every method for acquiring delicious, fresh fish. Norway’s waters are filled with cod, pollock, plaice, halibut, and much more.

There is nothing like catching your own dinner, and here in Lofoten you are for certain going to experience this feeling of serenity. Lofoten is especially known for its cod, where they have perfected several different dishes containing cod over the centuries. One could say it is almost like having a restaurant under water.

Do you want to experience halibut fishing?

Halibut is a predatory fish that feeds on eating other fish and other life that lives on and along the seabed. It can be more than three meters long and the weight can exceed 300 kg. Spawning takes place in the period December – May, and during this period there is an official ban on fishing for halibut with nets, trawls and spinners.

Lofoten Havfiske & Rorbuopplevelser make sure to arrange fantastic experiences and fishing trips that will be long forgotten. Every year, from May onwards, we arrange for halibut fishing here in Lofoten.

Fishing from boat with local guide

To be a part of this cultural fishing experience, it is important to be aware of the best fishing spots in the area. As a guest at our fishing camp this information will of course be available for you. If you wish to bring a local guide on the boat, this will also be provided. Our boats are steady and perfect for the waters here in the north of Norway.

We have daily fishing trips in Lofoten with our shark, which is located at Ballstad. The boat is 35 feet and can accommodate 6 people on board. We have an invaluable local knowledge and know exactly where the fish are. Which increases the probability of big catches.
