NEWS: LOCAL FISHERIES IN FJÆRLAND - UNIQUE FISHING TRIP EXPERIENCE

In March - April Fjærlandsfjorden is rich in various types of fish cauth with nets and we pull up halibut line. Unique fishing trip in winter surroundings. Try yourself as a local fisherman



Experience when the fjord comes to life. Excellent team building for groups of friends, family on a fishing trip (both men and women), management group or for a single group in a larger course conference based in Fjærland Fjordstove Hotell. Exclusive private fjord experience in world class. For particularly interested people who want to develop, explore new sides of themselves in Norwegian winter nature, and dream of trying their hand at fishing one day. Here you really have a great opportunity! Attendance in Fjærland at 09:00 and you will be involved in launching gear at 16:00 the night before if you want. Only available in weeks 8-17. Here is your chance to go viking a Norwegian fjord

Get on, and work in proper professional oil hire and sea boots for fishermen. Enter size (S-XL) when booking a trip, so that this is clear to you when Tor arrives at Fjærland marina or Fjærland Fjordstove Hotell. You can of course keep the fish home if you wish. Excellent short-haul self-caught quality fish that is perfect for a local meal story served from the kitchen Fjærland Fjordstove Hotell

Here you also get the opportunity to join Tor out in the boat for a couple of hours the night before which we lay out gear for the following day. Feel the real feeling of anticipation of catching the next day, as you lie down to sleep at night. Incredibly rewarding experience. It is completely real.

The combination of fjord nets at depth, troll nets and exciting halibut line means that we can see and catch different types of fish and crabs on this trip. We use halibut hooks with quick-snaps on the halibut line which makes this safer when it comes to large fish.

You as a participant are actively involved in the actual pulling and hauling and processing of the catch on board the boat. There will be work here. We use an electric winch to haul implements from around 110 meters deep. Feel the sense of simplification and control takes you over as you work and finds solutions to thoughts and problems as we work. Very fun experience.

I have a table, which I set up on board the boat for filleting. The seagulls gather around us on the water and eat fish fillets that we throw out. This creates a nice spring atmosphere around us on the fjord. Must be experienced!

Captain Tor has experience so it holds. He guides in the background when needed and takes care so that this becomes a nice, safe and educational course experience that works for all of you. Be prepared for slightly monotonous work movements.

We stay in the inner part of the fjord arm, the area Mundal - Lidal. It’s cold out at sea at this time of year, so put on good wool underwear. Hat and mittens of good quality. Here in the Fjærlandsfjord is calm and mostly flat sea, but there may be some gusts in March. When the sun peeks out, you feel the heat spread in your body and we have an incredibly wonderful winter-spring atmosphere. An extra edge to the experience and you feel tough and strong! Remember to bring sunglasses :)

Feel free to have an “After-sauna” in Dampen afterwards. Get up close to real nature, real fjords and real people as you plunge into a cooling fjord.

Welcome to try yourself as a local fisherman with Captain Tor in his unique, Norwegian-built boat in the legendary Fjærlandsfjorden!
