The abundant off-season fishing opportunities in Southern Norway offer anglers a uniquely quiet atmosphere, pristine lake and sea waters, countless fish species and exciting guided fishing trips.
At the very south of Norway, there are good fishing opportunities all year round - only a short ferry crossing from the European mainland.
In the sea you will find a large variety of fish species, most commonly cod, coalfish, pollock, herring, mackerel, tusk, ling and haddock. Individual anglers and groups are sure to find exceptional fishing experiences, and families with children are also well catered for.
Stay in a fully equipped apartment or cabin next to the best fishing grounds along the Skagerrak coast. Most holiday resorts have everything you need for a great fishing holiday, including boat hire, big freezers and gutting rooms. If you want to renew your tackle there are plenty of possibilities in the resort shops.
Enjoy a fun-filled holiday with fishing and lots of other activities at the high quality Farsund Resor. Accommodation is offered in lodges and apartments of a high standard, and you are surrounded by stunning nature with sheltered fjords, idyllic islands and narrow inlets.
Situated between Lyngdal and Farsund, around 1,5 hours west of Kristiansand, the open sea is only 15-20 minutes away. 22 feet Skager-boats with echo sound and map planner, GPS, AIS and VHF radio are available to rent.
Regardless of the weather and season, it is almost always possible to organise a fishing expedition.
The idyllic holiday resort Tregde Ferie has a location that is sheltered from the open sea, which makes it a great spot for winter fishing. Visit in winter if you want to avoid the summer crowds. Off-season, you also have a better chance of catching bigger fish, as they tend to move to deeper waters in the summer. Common species are cod, ling, tusk, coalfish and pollock.
Located 6 kilometres east of Mandal and 48 kilometres west of Kristiansund in Southern Norway, Tregde Ferie offers cabins and apartments of a high standard.
Beautifully located at the Spindfjord between Lyngdal and Farsund, Bjørnevåg Ferie offers accommodation in modern and comfortable holiday homes and apartments. Some of the holiday homes have a sauna, and they all have a bathroom with a shower.
Bjørnevåg Ferie has boats for rent and arranges deep-sea fishing trips with local fishermen as skippers all year round. The largest boat MS Bjørnevåg has a capacity for up to eight passengers.
