Read practical information below

  • Travel by RIB with fishermen to their king crab cages in the Barents Sea 

  • Learn about the history, anatomy, and importance of this fascinating creature 

  • Enjoy a sumptuous king crab buffet in a rustic fjord-side boathouse 

Get to know one of Northern Norway’s most important exports on this exciting RIB adventure. Arriving at the experience centre in Honningsvåg, you’ll be kitted out with a flotation suit and life jacket before boarding one of the RIB boats. As we zoom across the water towards Sarnes, we’ll stop at several crab pots to check the day’s catch, taking it with us to enjoy at our scenic picnic spot.  

The crab will be cooked the traditional way: boiled in seawater, and served with soft bread, mayonnaise, and a slice of lemon. As the chef prepares our lunch, our guide will tell us more about the history of this impressive crustacean, and how it came to live in the waters of the northern Norwegian coastline.  

Before heading back to Honningsvåg, enjoy a cup of tea or coffee by the bonfire in a modern Sami lavvo (tent).
