8. Svolvær: Fishing Trip on the Lofoten Sea
On our fishing trips you can experience catching all kinds of fish. You can take the fish you catch with you if you wish and prepare your own dinner. The trip lasts about 3 hours in a traditional northern Norwegian fishing boat on the Lofoten sea. You will hear stories/legends about fishing in Lofoten and, most importantly, you will get to try fishing. If you have never fished before and are not sure if you can handle it, don't worry, our experienced captain will teach you all the basics so that you can have a great experience fishing in a safe way. Lofoten is known for its large amount of fish, so here you have the opportunity to catch big fish and get a memory for life! In the summer you often catch pollock, haddock, mackerel and coastal cod, but it is also common to catch tusk, sole, flounder and halibut. Take a look at the other common fish species you might be able to catch here. MS Luna is a well-maintained traditional fishing boat like the ones that were used in Lofoten in the old days. We take a maximum of 12 people on board our fishing boat because our concept is to give all our guests a good experience and enough space to enjoy this unique and exclusive experience, so there will be plenty of space and enough fishing rods for everyone. Of course, the trip has much more to offer than just fishing. You will be surrounded by the unique Lofoten's nature with thousand meters high mountains plunging directly into the sea, idyllic bays with crystal clear water and chalk white sandy beaches, just to name a few. If we are lucky, we may even see sea eagles, whales, porpoises, sharks and seals. We take safety seriously and you will be equipped with warm floatation suit and life jacket. On board Luna, coffee will be included in the ticket. We do not serve food on board, but you can of course bring your own food. It is possible to stay inside the cabin if you get cold and need to warm up a bit. There are also a toilets on board.
