Topp 5 ting å gjøre i Lofoten om vinteren

The Lofoten Islands remains one of those places where every season is unique and offers something completely different than the other. Here are our top tips for an unforgettable adventure in Lofoten in the Winter.

1. Skrei fishing

One of the most intense things you can experience in terms of fishing in northern Norway is fishing for Skrei. This is a particularly large cod that, during the winter months, take the long migration from the Barents Sea and to the coast of northern Norway to spawn. These extremely powerful giants give you a fishing experience entirely out of the ordinary when you have got them on the hook. Expect to catch some of the biggest fish of your life as our own fishermen and captain take you out of Nusfjord on one of our Lofoten fishing boats.
