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.
