My wife and boy of 10 months were to visit Lofoten for the first time. Drove a car from Vinstra in Gudbrandsdalen 120 miles one way. So I had to go fishing. The wife insisted on buying a trip before arriving in Svolvær. We found company on Google. It was a wonderful experience. Helpful people. Especially Geir who owns this. My namesake Geir. The nicest man in the world. Gentle and kind. Lots of great stories to tell. He takes care of everyone. We caught lots of fish. I got close to 10 pieces. 2 cod at once. The largest weighed 7 blank kilos the other 4 to 5 kilos. I could not have been happier. The ship is 100 years old. The skipper is known. 5 pieces were put ashore after an hour when they became seasick. Add 30 minutes extra with time. If I go back, I will definitely buy a trip with this company again. Worth the money. Lofoten is fishing. Good luck.

A wonderful day! Maurizio is a trained guide and he told us many things about the islands and traditions. Fortunately there were only four of us, so we were able to make many stops to take pictures. It must be said, however, that even if the group had been full, it would have been a group of up to eight people. I heard that Lofoten Lights also organizes winter tours to photograph the Northern Lights, if I can make this trip, I will definitely contact them for the tour!
