Traditional winter fishing

Every year the North Atlantic cod, or skrei, leaves its normal habitat in the Barents Sea and swims about 1000 kilometres southwards to the Lofoten region to spawn. This natural phenomenon has throughout history been the most important reason to live in the Lofoten islands. When the cod comes to Lofoten in the period from January to March it is time for the great Lofoten fishery.


“Combine the Lofoten fishing experience with our preheated sauna after a day at sea – while your very own private chef for the day – dishes up the most gastronomic three course meal with your catch of the day.”


Experience fishing in Lofoten on board our authentic fishing boat. We will provide the best guidance on our 3 hour fishing trip with pick-up point at our private dock at Lofoten Apartments.


We have made this trip suitable for those who have little or no fishing experience, but who would like to try it during a great day at sea. We cannot guarantee a catch, but we do our utmost to help through finding the right fishing spots. The boat trip itself is an experience if you like to immerse yourself in nature, like photography or is interested in learning about fishing. No two trips are alike, and we often see sea eagles and other birds on our trips.

This is included:
– Thermo suit
– All necessary equipment for fishing
– Coffee

What should you bring and wear?
The weather at sea in Lofoten can change rapidly, which is some of the charm of these isles. Fishermen have over hundreds of years learnt what is suitable clothing at sea, and we recommend the same for our guests in the summer, unless the temperature is above 20 degrees centigrade. Please wear: Wool underwear, which isolates and breathes. Fleece, wool sweater or another insulating middle layer in a bag/rucksack with you. Footwear, mittens and hat as necessary.
