An array of fish species, breathtaking scenery and tranquillity away from the crowds. Trøndelag is a dream destination for fishing fans all year round.
Experience winter fishing in Trøndelag - an area with skerries and fjords, lots of islands and islets, and of course easy access to the North Sea. Here you have everything you need for a successful fishing holiday no matter the season.
You can count on finding plenty of huge cod and saithe, and in the fjords there is a lot of haddock, mackerel, tusk, ling and cod.
Stay in a cabin or a rorbu next to the best fishing spots. Most accommodation options on the waterfront also rent out boats and offer guided tours.
In the winter, the fish tend to come closer to the shore at Bessaker, making a wide range of species easily available at short distances.
The main winter species is cod, however you can also expect to find halibut, pollock and saithe. From the shore, you have a good chance of getting flatfish on the hook. If the weather permits, you can venture out to sea where you can fish for snapper and large ling. To top it all off, with a little bit of luck you will get to see the northern lights during your trip.
From NOK 650 per day for a flat
From NOK 1,000 per day for a rorbu (fisherman’s hut)
From NOK 650 per day for boat hire (17 feet/40 HP)
