3. Sleep in cozy fisherman cabins
To travel to Lofoten is really an experience itself, but you could also make more out of it by staying in authentic fisherman cabins down by the bay. Our fishing huts are charming with their smaller size and traditional red color. They are also equipped with all necessities. Living in the fishing huts will definitely let you get a feel of what it’s like to be a part of the active fishing environment.
4. Come along for a fishing trip
Ever since the viking age, Lofoten has continued to be a central place for fishing. To capture a fish can really give you the feeling of mastery, and with boats and equipment available for rent, you can choose if you would like to go on a trip by yourself or join one of our guided trips. Here at Lofoten havfiske we love fishing and are happy to help you find the best spots which will guarantee a catch!
