Fishing in Lofoten varies greatly with the season, and during the traditional Lofoten fisheries, from end of February to mid-April, we catch skrei (barents cod). MS Symra is a traditional 39 feet fishing cutter, with a long history back to 1917. Joining in on MS Symra is a real authentic experience.

Once onboard we introduce you to the fishing tools and equipment featured on board. There are 10 fishing stations on board, so our guests must expect to share these between them on the trip. But do not worry, we expect you will be very satisfied by the time we head back to port. And the catch? We teach you to fillet it on board, and of course you can take it home with you if you wish.

“When you visit Lofoten it is a must to get out to sea and try your luck fishing.”
