This three-hour tour is a scenic fishing trip in the open sea with a regular catch of cod, pollock, haddock, and mackerel. Vestfjorden has a healthy and rich ecosystem of marine life that is well managed. The Norwegian Sea in the arctic is clean, fresh, and open for the fishing season!

This is a great activity for families, small groups or couples who want to go on a day trip in Lofoten and try fishing for cod. All fishing equipment is provided and we’ll show you how to use it.

If your desired tour dates are not available on the booking calendar, let us know and we may be able to arrange special dates for you.

We depart Svolvær harbor, the main town of the Lofoten Islands. As we cruise Lofoten and out to Vestfjorden, watch for orca, porpoise and humpback whales from our top deck lounge. Once we are out in Vestfjorden, we will begin your fishing adventure. Grab a rod and listen up. We’ll teach you how to cast, jig and reel in your line. Norway offers some of the best cod fishing in the North Atlantic because they have managed their fisher and exports very well. Did you know there are two types of cod in Norwegian waters? If your jigging is good, you may catch either a coastal cod or a Norwegian-Arctic cod, locally called Skrei. Skrei means "wanderer", referring to the 1000 km journey the cod makes each year from the Barents Sea to the coast of Northern Norway. The Lofoten Islands are one of the most important spawning grounds for Norwegian-arctic cod. We’ll pause our fishing to enjoy a warm vegetable soup with fresh bread. If you catch a fish, it can be cooked and added to your soup. Your captain and first mate will share stories about their fishing adventures, the history and biology of the Norweigan cod, and answer any other questions you may have about Norwegian fishing. Leaving our favourite fishing spot, our fishing charter will set a course for its home port. With your fish cleaned, you can take your catch and enjoy it at your next meal.

Take Our Guests' Word For It

Frequently asked questions about Lofoten Islands Beach Day

How long is the fishing tour?

Our cod fishing charter is about 3 hours long. It depends on the size of the group, the catches, the winds and the currents.

Is there a minimum number of participants for the tour?

Yes, we have a minimum of 8 guests for our tours. We always strive to do fishing charter many days within the season, but if there are too few people booked, we will reschedule your tour to another day or provide you with a full refund. We cancel because it is both financially and ecologically unsustainable to do a fishing charter with groups any smaller. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility.

What happens if it is raining all day?

Our Deep-sea Cod Fishing Tour will continue rain or shine. If the weather conditions are unsafe (high winds or storms), we will cancel the tour and either reschedule or provide a full refund. Sailing Yacht Stella Oceana, our ship, has warm indoor spaces so you can opt to stay warm and dry. Some of our best fishing has been experienced on a grey, foggy day though!

What wildlife/animals will I see?

You never know what you might encounter in the sea, but some common wild animals that we see are harbor porpoises, orca, humpback whales, other whales, seals, white-tailed eagles, puffins, migrating birds from all over the world and arctic birds. Of course, on this adventure, the chance of seeing a cod fish is also quite high!

Will I get seasick?

We can't guarantee that you won't get seasick, but most people don't experience this discomfort because the boat is so stable.  However, in the small chance that you do get seasick, the crew has a lot of experience and can help you so you can enjoy your trip.
