Come and discover why Kirkenes is nicknamed ‘King Crab City’ on this exciting fishing tour. From Kirkenes, we’ll board a small boat (RIB, a rigid inflatable boat) and cruise out on the Barents Sea with an experienced fisherman as our guide.
Red king crabs weigh up to 22 lbs and their legs can span up to 6.5 feet. Watch as the fishermen pulls up cages filled with king crab. You might even be asked to lend a hand to haul them up if they are too heavy for the fishermen.
Then we bring these giant crustaceans to the traditional boathouse beside the beautiful fjord.
See a local chef transform today’s catch into a delicious meal. Feast on as much king crab as you want and savor the succulent white, flaky meat to your heart’s content. Be sure to bring your appetite.
