6 days, 7 nights
From June to August
Remarkably rich waters
The ribs and the benches that stretch the limits of the continental shelf of northern Norway are among the richest fishing waters in the world. The area in which we operate is the coastal area largely protected from the swell by benches and low islands. We can fish for halibut, coalfish, wolffish and cod of course.
Sailing kayaks are very stable and fast, with high load capacity.
The Hobie Tandem Island kayaks are 3 meter wide trimarans which gives them an incomparable stability. Easy to maneuver, they allows you to move easily and effortlessly while the Mirage Drive propulsion system helps keep hands free at all times, remaining fast despite the lack of wind. The 100 kg load capacity, allows us to bring the wood, for example, so we are able to grill and eat fishes we didn’t release. The islands on which we stop are fragile ecosystems on which we strive to leave the least possible footprints.
The presence of many seabirds can quickly identify hunts.
Seabirds in large numbers in the region are also fond of fish and help us to easily identify where the fishes are. Those who discover the wild coast of Troms are immediately surprised by the clarity and purity of water.
Fishes we didn’t released will be grilled on the evening firewood
At night, the midnight sun leaves no room for the night for two months and the evenings can last forever. Fishes grilled on firewood, is a simple and authentic pleasure that recharges the batteries for a very long time
