Fishing in Lofoten is an important tradition with strong links to the Norwegian way of living. The jagged mountains and the unique nature create a dramatic scene for this fishing trip that takes place on board our authentic fishing cutter, MS Symra.

An experienced crew will teach you how to fish like a real fisherman, including how to gut the fish. Your hard earned catch is of course yours to take home. 

During the summer season, you can catch pollock, haddock, mackerel and coastal cod among others. The fishing boat MS Symra is custom designed to the Lofoten way of fishing. The traditional 39-foot fishing cutter have sailed these waters since 1917. 

It’s not guaranteed that you will catch fish, but the crew on board MS Symra will do their best to find good fishing spots. The boat trip itself is a truly special experience for anyone fond of nature and photography. 

No trips at the Lofoten Sea are ever the same!
