Deep sea fishing is always on some sort of bucket list. Forget all that and try some arctic fishing in Norway, instead. It’s an once-in-a-lifetime trip where you can find yourself floating in the famous fjords of Norway or out on the open sea near Kattfjorden. There’s so much to see and do on trips like these.

So what can you expect to find on one of these trips?

The Biggest Catch of the Day

What makes Norway such an exciting place to fish is the size of the fish. It’s not uncommon to see professional fishermen picking up halibuts going up to 200kg. Catch a 30kg cod, or if you’re an average fisherman, fish up an average fish and you’ve got a catch worth about 10kg.

It’s a sense of pride and achievement you’ll only get in this part of the world. It’s all down to the cod spawning out of the Barents Sea. It doesn’t matter what time of year you go because there’s always something new to catch.

Some of the fish you can catch include ling, dab, mackerel, and haddock. This bucket list experience doesn’t just leave you with memories. It leaves you with dinner!

More than Fishing in Norway

Norway is about so much more than fishing. Deep sea fishing is the main activity, but many of these trips involve side excursions to sail through the ice floes of the Arctic Circle and the chance to see the awe-inspiring Northern Lights.

The Northern Lights are on many people’s bucket lists, so even if fishing isn’t your main love in life, there’s always something to see. It’s an ideal trip to bring the whole family.

You’ll discover Norway and its unique part of Europe in a way you’d never have thought possible!
