Arctic ice fishing excursion in Honningsvåg, Norway.
  • Snowshoe to your off-the-beaten-track location and cut your own hole in the ice.

  • Learn the best fishing techniques, and with luck, catch a few trout or Arctic char.

  • Enjoy the taste of your own freshly caught fish back at the restaurant, a traditional lavvo tent.

Think fishing is only for the summer months? Nope. Even with lakes covered in a thick layer of ice, fishing is still possible.

We’ll go on a short snowshoe walk to our ice-fishing location, taking an ice drill, fishing rods, bait, warm clothes, reindeer skins to sit on, and a hot beverage to keep us warm. Bring a healthy dose of luck with you to catch some trout or Arctic char for dinner.

Your guide will explain how to drill a hole in the ice and teach you the best fishing techniques to encourage the fish to bite.

After spending a while on the ice, we’ll return to our restaurant in a lavvo tent to warm up by the fire and enjoy our catch of the day, prepared and cooked to perfection by the restaurant’s chefs.
