Catch your own fish and soak up the fresh sea air on board authentic fishing boat MS Symra, a traditional 39-foot fishing cutter with history dating back to 1917.
Under the guidance of a professional crew, you’ll use jigging reels to catch fish like pollock, haddock, and mackerel. Between February and April, it is possible to also catch skrei, Arctic cod.
No two fishing trips are the same as we make the best of the day’s conditions. Our location will depend on the weather and where the fish are likely to be.
You'll learn exactly how to fillet your catch and we’ll cook some of the fresh fish on board to taste.
The remaining fish we catch together will be served for dinner that evening back on MS Trollfjord. It’s a proud moment to see your shipmates tucking into fish that you caught just earlier in the day with your own two hands and skill, together with a bit of luck.
This trip is for everyone, whether you’re experienced at fishing or not. It’s an all-around day at sea with an opportunity to immerse yourself in nature and learn about authentic Norwegian fishing.
