From Tromsø: 3 Day Cod Fishing Tour

We had a great experience with our guide/skipper Per. He would tell us about the area and share stories of past experiences, which was very fun! The accommodations on board were great, too! We caught several fish in late November and even were able to bring some with us after the trip!

Really good, beautiful scenery, the catamaran shakes well but it's cool. Equip yourself well for the cold. I recommend this activity

Very interesting trip! I never knew that fishing could be so fun. We can have hot drinks and fish soups for lunch. It was a nice trip.

Absolutely an amazing experience, stop thinking about it and book it!
