Sportquest Norway Halibut Competition 2022

Due to how popular the 2021 Halibut competition at Å on the Lofoten Islands was, with it selling out within 3 days of advertising the dates we have managed to secure something pretty special for 2022. It’s getting bigger and better with more money prizes and lots more will follow.

Sportquest Holidays Norway Halibut Competition 2022

In 2021 we managed to take over the resort of Å on the Lofoten Islands taking up all 9 boats and 9 cabins. We advertised this competition on Facebook and our other media outlets and to our shock, it sold out within 3 days…… We never imagined it would have been so popular, so this got us thinking about how we can grow this moving forward.

After many conversations with Nordic Sea Angling, we have come up with a plan. (I will explain a little later on)

Once we had secured the dates and resort for 2021 when then set about advertising this boat competition and it took off. We had lost of people in reserve wanting spaces if the first people didn’t take them, and guess what? no one dropped out! We had some very disappointed anglers but we were, for 2021, limited to only 9 boats.

You may be thinking why do you have to book this so far in advance? Well, it is very hard to book an entire destination especially when the destination is one of the best in Norway for large Halibut and the week we have booked is bang on peak time for the big ones!

Halibut Competition 2022 Dates

So this has already bought us on to thinking about what we can do for our 2022 Halibut competition! As like I have mentioned above we have to plan these things so far in advance to get what and when we want it.

For 2022 we have managed to move all our boats down from Nappstraumen and have these moored at Å for the whole week of the competition. We have managed to secure enough boats and cabins to take 60 people almost doubling the 2021 competition……. sound good?

The full details of the competition can be found HERE
