Hosted Sea Fishing | Vesterålen | North Norway

Tour code: NOR027
Overview
Category: Fishing Holidays, Sea Fishing, Hosted Sea Fishing

We are extremely pleased to be able to offer you yet another fantastic opportunity to fish this part of the world as a single angler or small group and would like to welcome you to Vesterålen. Located in the north of Norway surrounded by some of the most stunning landscape Norway has to offer. Known locally as the ‘Kingdom of the Whales’ it is home to a huge population of different species of Whales. This stunning Island is north of the world famous Lofoten Islands and the Arctic circle, the archipelago of Vesterålen reaches out westwards from the mainland of Norway and into the Atlantic ocean.

Due to how popular our other destinations have become on the Lofoten Islands, has led us to research this area and try to bring you new exciting destinations that offer the same world class fishing opportunities. Vesterålen will open up some great fishing areas and is what we like to class as almost weatherproof as you have access to two huge fjords, Jörnfjorden where the camp is located and then Eidsfjorden being just a 5 minute ride away and with your host you will explore some fantastic fishing areas.

Eidsfjorden is a deep long fjord with depths as deep as 200mtrs and has many plateaus, peaks and structures that will hold big Cod and Coalfish all year round. This has also been a great area for Redfish and huge Ling. On the sides of this fjord there are some great sandy plateaus close to land which will offer fantastic Halibut fishing along with Plaice and Dabs.

If you continue a short distance to the west or south west you will find yourself in the open ocean where there are many more peaks, channels and plateaus. The population of big Cod, Coalfish and Halibut is great in this area. The fishing area stretches all the way up to Hovden, which is a lighthouse on the north west side of Vesterålen about 25 nm away from the camp.

The accommodation at this destination is first class and is another reason why we have chosen this destination as we like to offer you the traveller something a little special to stay in. The cabins are brand new and very modern, a world away from a lot of other destinations in Norway.

With our partners ‘Nordic Sea Angling’ we have managed to secure the same high standard boats as we run at many of our other camps. The boats that you and your host will be fishing from are known for their excellent handling and safety at sea. They are very sturdy even in rough conditions and are constructed to deal with heavy seas. The boats are 23.5ft Arronets aluminium boats and come fitted with 150hp Suzuki 4 Stroke engines which are one of the most fuel efficient engines money can buy. The electronics on the boat are of a high standard with big displays on the fish finders and chart plotters. These boats are kept to a very high standard and are maintained on a regular basis. We also have a spare boat just in case of unforeseen breakdowns.

If you have been looking for your next hosted sea fishing adventure then Vesterålen is the place for you as once you have fished here and stayed in the luxury cabins, been looked after by our onsite guides and caught that dream fish, you will not want to go anywhere else.
