My wife and boy of 10 months were to visit Lofoten for the first time. Drove a car from Vinstra in Gudbrandsdalen 120 miles one way. So I had to go fishing. The wife insisted on buying a trip before arriving in Svolvær. We found company on Google. It was a wonderful experience. Helpful people. Especially Geir who owns this. My namesake Geir. The nicest man in the world. Gentle and kind. Lots of great stories to tell. He takes care of everyone. We caught lots of fish. I got close to 10 pieces. 2 cod at once. The largest weighed 7 blank kilos the other 4 to 5 kilos. I could not have been happier. The ship is 100 years old. The skipper is known. 5 pieces were put ashore after an hour when they became seasick. Add 30 minutes extra with time. If I go back, I will definitely buy a trip with this company again. Worth the money. Lofoten is fishing. Good luck.

Erik is very nice and knowledgeable. He has a very unique perspective on life in Lofoten. Could not think of a better way of touring in the beautiful islands. Highly recommended.

Nice sunny weather, quiet sea, excellent guide and shipper! Caught several big fish that we got to keep. Three different types
