Norway is one of angling's spiritual homes. Fishing in Norway has an indefinable but extra special quality to it.
Here, you will find everything needed for a great fishing holiday: a wide range of well stocked waters, a pristine environment offering plenty of opportunities to escape from the crowd, somewhere comfortable to relax at the end of the day and a ready supply of good guides. But if one thing makes Norway exceptional it is a reputation for producing big fish.
A trip to Norway offers a great chance to hook up with an outsized salmon, trout, pike, cod or halibut and many more species besides. With 83,281 kilometers of coastline, over 400 salmon-bearing rivers and countless other fishable rivers, streams and lakes, and little pressure on most fisheries, the fish thrive and grow large.
The problem lies in knowing where to start. Fortunately Norwegians have fishing in their blood and wherever you go you will find guides who can call on generations of experience to ensure that you enjoy good sport. You will find contact details for many of them, and for specialist tour operators that can organise your entire holiday for you, in this section of our website.
To help you start planning a visit we have included information about some of the most highly regarded fishing areas – and persuaded some of Norway's most successful fishing guides to let us in on a few secrets about the best tactics to use on their "patch".
