  • Notices

    Bring comfortable shoes, warm and windproof clothing. Special thermal and protective clothing for the sleigh ride is provided.

Travel across the frozen Barents Sea on a snowmobile-driven sleigh amid the fantastic scenery. An experienced fisherman will accompany us and tell us all about the giant crustaceans that have made these icy waters their home.

Red king crabs are considered ‘royalty’, simply because of their size. A single king crab can weigh up to 22 pounds and have an impressive leg span of around 6.5 feet.

Watch as the fisherman cuts a hole in the ice and hauls crab cages out of the depths. Be ready to lend a hand if he asks!

We continue via snowmobile to the quaint boathouse that is located beside the fjord. After the chef prepares and cooks the crab, we’ll settle down to a hearty meal with today’s catch. It doesn’t get any fresher than this! The portions will be generous and the crab delicious, so you’ll surely leave the table satisfied.
