FJÆRLAND FJORD ANGLING & FAMILY EXPEDITION

A real fjord attraction in a beautiful, majestic Fjærlandsfjord. An educational fjord world-class experience with legendary captain Thor as fjord host



The price includes 4 people in a private boat. Captain Tor picks you up at the pier with his boat at Fjærland Fjordstove Hotel or Fjærland marina. Perfect outdoor fjord activity and easy surprise for your family or friends. Imagine that suddenly there is a white adventure boat by the pier that will take you on a voyage of discovery across the legendary Fjærlandsfjorden. Trips all year round. In March, the fjord is in a beautiful winter landscape and avalanches down to the fjord.

From the boat you will see unique homesteads such as Lidal and Teigen. Time for wonder and reflection as we travel beyond #fjærlandsfjorden. Tor tells stories and you pull up fishing nets in the Lidal Teigen area, set out by us the night before. Fish and crabs you take home and make at the cabin yourself, or prepared by agreement with Fjærland Fjordstove Hotel and the chef if you live there.

We angel in the innerpart of Mundal for Sand Whitings, Haddock, Mackerel and Pollick. On fishing nets we can get Cod, Halibut, Haddock, Boil crabs and Rock gilthead. A real food culture experience as we local fjord people have been doing this for generations. This is the fjord life itself, must be experienced to understand!

“Gardingane” is a local name for people who live on the rugged farms along the 27-kilometer-long Fjærlandsfjorden.

Ever since the first foreign tourists began to flock to the western fjords in the middle of the 19th century, Fjærland with its dizzying mountains and mighty glacier arms has been an important destination.

Nowhere else in Western Norway did the glacier arms extend as far down to the fjord as the Supphelle glacier and the Bøya glacier in Fjærland. By the way, the village was called “Fjordland” in Old Norse times.
