DETAILED TOUR DESCRIPTION

We depart Svolvær harbor, the main town of the Lofoten Islands at 10:00 am. Relax on the outer decks as we sail through the open sea fjords. When we find good fishing spots, we’ll bring out the rods and teach you how to cast, jig and reel so you can experience deep sea fishing. Vestfjorden is famous for its cod fishery, which dates back to the early medieval period. On a clear day, it's possible to see the entire Lofoten archipelago known as 'the wall' of mountains sticking straight out from the open sea. Cruise through nature reserves and uninhabited islands with sandy beaches, dolphins, and a range of bird species such as puffins, cormorants, white-tailed eagles, eider ducks, grey geese, siland, common gulls and Arctic terns. Enjoy a reindeer soup with roote vegetables and fresh bread for lunch, and a Norwegian pastry called lefsa for an afternoon snack. If you catch a fish, settle in the interior saloon or exterior top deck for your fresh caught fish experience in the late afternoon of battered filet panfried with lemon. You will also be cruising through protected islets and islands with steep sided mountains, waterfalls, snow capped mountains and historical sites. Each group will have their own time to relax in the outdoor hot tub and enjoy the blissful Norweigan landscapes. Are you ready to explore the best of the Lofoten fjords and fishing?

Frequently asked questions about this tour

Is there a minimum number of participants for the tour?

Yes, we have a minimum of 6 guests for our tour. We always strive to do a Lofoten Fjord Cruise and Fishing Trip tour once a week 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 cruise with groups any smaller. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility.

What happens if it is raining all day?

Our 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. On rainy days, the clouds hang low in along the coastline creating an otherworldly experience.

What is available for food?

A reindeer soup with root vegetables and fresh bread will be served for lunch, a Norwegian pastry called Lefsa will be served for an afternoon snack, and the fish you catch will be served battered and pan-fried with lemon toward the end of the cruise. All food is sourced locally.  This means some items are only available seasonally and everything is of high quality and optimal freshness.  The food is prepared onboard so we are able to accommodate most dietary restrictions if notified in advance.

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 dolphins, porpoises, orca, minke whales, seals, white-tailed eagles, puffins, and migrating birds from all over the world. The most common fish you might catch are cod, halibut, mackerel, pollock, haddock and red fish.

Will I get seasick and what if I need medical attention?

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.  Northern Norway tends to seem remote and isolated, however, we will always be sailing along the coast where help is never far away.  There are local rescue ships and the Norwegian Coast Guard is always operating throughout the entire coast.
