Try fishing and get to know more about the fishing history on this authentic trip. 

Our winter fishing includes sea fishing with line wheel and we offer coffee on board our boat. 

MS Symra is a traditional and authentic fishing cutter, and she turned 100 years old in 2017. She is protected by the Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage. Symra is a comfortable boat originally built specifically for Lofotfisket, and she is certified for 38 passengers.  

On the 10 fishing stations on board, you will get to try for yourself, whether you have what it takes to work in the Lofoten fisheries. And the catch? We teach you how to fillet it on board.
