Henningsvær has for centuries been a center for fishing in Lofoten!
A fishing trip from Henningsvær is as close as you will ever get to the authentic Lofoten Seasonal Fisheries. If you are in Henningsvær, you can not miss experiencing deep sea fishing. Henningsvær is still Norway's most authentic fishing village, even though it has also turned into a micro urban hub for art and culture. In Henningsvær you can both join a sceduled trip or charter a boat with a skipper and all the equipment you need. We can almost guarantee that you will catch a fish.
During the classic Lofoten fisheries the cod comes down from the Barents Sea to spawn. This happens every year from January to April. But there are ample oportunities to catch fish the rest of the year as well. The coastal cod is here all year round and so are the coalfish, mackarell and the halibut.
During the summer there are scheduled trips every day from Henningsvær, but you can also charter your own boat, with a skilled skipper and all the equipment you need. We will find the boat that is best for your group. On chartered trips it is also possible to order food to go on the trip, which we recommend to keep your energy level on top, while experiencing the beautiful surroundings.
You cannot get closer to the authentic Lofoten fisheries than to embark out of Henningsvær on a traditional fishing cutter
Want to do a fishing competition? Or combine the fishing trip with a visit to Stamsund or the Trollfjord? You can head north and go for the really big fish. Everything is possible. Let us know what you want to experience and we will make it happen.
