    Only available on The North Cape Express – Oslo to Bergen sailing No fishing experience required Catching a fish is not guaranteed. Wear comfortable shoes with good traction and suitable clothes for that day’s weather.

Cast your line and try to catch your own fish. Soak up the fresh ocean air aboard MS Symra, a traditional 39-foot fishing cutter with a history dating back to 1917.

Under the guidance of a professional crew, you’ll use jigging reels to catch fish like pollock, haddock, and mackerel. Between February and April, it is possible to also catch skrei, Arctic cod.

No two fishing trips are the same, as we make the best of the day’s conditions. Our location will depend on the weather and where the fish are likely to be.

This trip is for everyone, whether you’re experienced at fishing or not. Spend an all-around enjoyable day at sea and take the opportunity to immerse yourself in nature and learn about authentic Norwegian fishing.
