Overall a very pleasant experience. Beautiful old fishing boat, incredibly knowledgeable fishing hosts, lots of fish, magnificent environment with fabulous views towards Lofoten. Highest rating!

For me as a layman it was a wonderful experience to catch fish and to prepare and eat them with my family on the same day. Not to be compared with the fish from the supermarket.

A great fishing trip despite bad weather with good gear as some fish were caught

Very good reception the service was at the desired level

Very nice, but at the moment a little worse with fish.
