Fishing in Norway

If you are eager to experience authentic culture and identity at its fullest, fishingin Norway is an activity you would definitelywant to cross off your bucket 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 fish such as cod, pollock, plaice, halibut, and much more. There is nothing like catching your own dinner, and here in Norway 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.

In other words, fishing in Norway is an activity which is enjoyable for the most of us. Adults as well as kids enjoy fishing here in Norway, and it is therefore a great activity to do with both family, friends and whomever you may please. In many ways, fishing in Norway is a great way to bond and get know each other. When you are fishing here in Norway, you are at one with nature and can feel an inner peace unlike no other. Inner peace like this is what makes people feel comfortable around each other on a whole new level. Also, unlike common belief, one does not have to be sporty to go fishing in Norway either, one only needs to have a love for fresh air, salty water, beautiful scenery, and delicious fish.

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.
