Join local fishermen from the family business Go2Lofoten out on the legendary Lofoten Cod fishery!
The Hanssen brothers were born and raised in Svolvær. When our parents and grandparents were actively fishing and whaling, it became natural that we grew up out at sea.
Every winter we also do commercial fishing and get to take an active part in the adventurous and fantastic Lofoten fishery, which has had such a great impact on our upbringing, but also on our ancestors!
Lofoten is known for its rich amounts of fish, and since we know the area and the fishing spots well, the chances to get fish are always very good!
On our fishingtrips, we often get cod, pollock, haddock and mackerel. Its also common to get herring, redfish, catfish, monkfish and flounder. Sometimes we catch halibut.
Along the way you will experience the Lofoten archipelago with steep mountains, islets and sheaves.
We often see Sea-eagles, cormorants and eiders. If we are lucky we can also see whales, porpoises, basking sharks and seals.
You will receive good guidance from our crew, both when it comes to fishing, fishing gear and safety procedures.
If you want to take your catch with you, back home, you are of course welcome to do that! We can fillet your catch together out at sea. You can prepare your fish to a delicious dinner!
Hot drinks are served on board.
Fishing gear and floating- /warmsuit you can borrow from us.
It is recommended to wear good and warm clothes.
