Sportquest Exclusive

In conjunction with our partner Big Fish Adventure, we’re excited to offer our new luxury, all-inclusive sea fishing package to the world-famous island of Soroya. New for 2025, this fully guided trip is exclusive to Sportquest Holidays. It offers travelling anglers the chance to fish the fish-rich waters of Northern Norway for a whole host of species to record-breaking sizes. The trip utilises the best guides, top-of-the-range boats, and deluxe apartments and is tailored to those looking for the best.

With the range of first-class amenities on offer, ensuring we have the very best fishing to match would only be correct, which is precisely what we have done. The island of Soroya, where our camp is based, is one of Norway’s most famous sea fishing destinations. Primarily famed for its winter Skrei Cod fishing, it produces more Cod over 60lb each year than anywhere in the world. However, it’s also an incredible all-year-round destination for giant Halibut, which grow to sizes of well over 2m in length, colossal Coalfish, dustbin lid-sized Plaice and deep water Wolffish and Redfish.

Throughout the years, our previous trips to the island have rewarded hundreds of anglers with new PBs, and it surely will be soon that one of our customers returns home with a new world record. The question is, could it be you?

First Class Sea Fishing

Soroya is famous for three main species: Cod, Halibut and Coalfish. However, many other species are also on offer, including Haddock, Wolffish, Dabs and Plaice, all of which grow to epic proportions.

Resident Cod can be caught all year round, with fish between 10lb and 40lb common, with even bigger specimens landed every season, especially during the Skrei Cod run. When targeting these, we recommend looking for fish-holding features such as underwater pinnacles with deep areas on either side. All fishing gets done on the drift, and the primary tactic is to use a large rubber shad, something like a Savage Gear Cut Bait Herring, lowered to the bottom and then fished a few turns off it.

Halibut fishing* has been excellent, and more fish are landed every season. Once again, shads and spin fishing are fantastic tactics for these famous giant flatfish, but so is dead baiting. A popular method is a medium-sized Coalfish or Mackerel dead bait fished on an anti-twist lead.

From April onwards, good numbers of Coalfish begin to appear, with specimens of over 20lb not unusual. These are generally willing to smash anything presented to them. In the right conditions, they can also get caught in the upper layers and even on surface poppers, providing some fantastic action.

Close to the camp, many of the intimate bays offer anglers the chance to target Plaice and Dabs. These are best targeted using flowing traces or flapper rigs with smaller hooks, baited with frozen prawns.

The time of year you visit will dictate what you can catch, so it’s worth chatting with one of our team to give them an understanding of what you’d like from the fishing, and they can secure the best week for you.

*Please note that, by Norwegian law, you’re not allowed to intentionally target and catch Halibut until the 1st of April each year.

Big Fish Adventure

As this package is the ‘Ultimate’ sea fishing trip, no stone has been left unturned, regarding offering everything to the highest standards. We’ve already mentioned the first-class fishing, but what else is included?

The trip involves six days of fishing on the camp’s luxury flagship guide boat, the Apex. It includes rods and reels, and floatation suits, plus one experienced English-speaking guide who will drive the boat and guide you to the fish. Accommodation is in the camp’s first-class cabins, the BFA resort, and the chef cooks three meals per day and serves breakfast and dinner at the restaurant, while lunch is taken on the boat.

If you wish to bring some fish back each day, the guides will fillet, pack and freeze them for you, ready for you to take when you depart home. You’re allowed 18kg of frozen fillets per person. The package also includes final boat cleaning, meaning on the last day, you don’t have to wash down the boats; it gets done for you.

At Sportquest, as we always like to offer you, our customers a range of options and the chance to tailor your trip, and this is no exception. A whole host of extras are available, including more fishing days and/or a longer itinerary with rest days in between. It’s also possible for us to arrange private helicopter transfers. For the full list of options, please contact a member of our team.

Additional Tours To Soroya

If you’ve always dreamt of fishing on the famous island of Soroya in northern Noway, as well as our Luxury All-inclusive weeks, we also offer two others. One is fishing for the Skrei Cod during the early part of the season, and the other is our standard trip. You can see more details about each of them by clicking the links below:

The 'Apex' Guide Boat

At our Big Fish Adventure resort, they have some of the best fishing boats in Norway, including their flagship guide vessel, the ‘Apex’. The Apex boat is the camp’s all-singing, all-dancing guide boat and is available as standard for this package. However, there is nothing standard about it, as it features some of the most modern technology in the fishing and motorboating industry.

It features a 37-foot hull and two Yamaha 425 XTO engines with 850 HP capacity, making it an absolute dream to navigate the waters around the island. In addition to the engines, the ship also features the new Yamaha Helm Master, which is a dream when docking and fishing.

As you’d expect, no expense has been spared with the electronics. It features a triple installation with 8416xsv GPSmap chart plotters in the dash and one 10-inch screen in the front, along with B175HW transducers and L + Panoptix Livescope. A small cabin with a toilet, fridge, and heating adds a real touch of luxury.

This guide boat is truly a ‘one of a kind’ and can accommodate larger group sizes; it’s also fully guided by one of the camp’s professional guides. During specific periods of the year or on request, it’s also possible to have an extra guide onboard, creating an even more personalised experience.

Accommodation

Keeping in line with the luxury theme, the accommodation for this trip is the camp’s deluxe apartments, which are undoubtedly some of the finest you will find in Norway. Each house features two floors with 86 square meters and six beds distributed over three bedrooms. On the first floor, you have two bedrooms, a bathroom with a sauna and a washing and drying room. The first floor also has a terrace where you can sit and enjoy the stunning views.

Upstairs, there’s an open kitchen and living room with full glass frontage, offering a jaw-dropping view across the fjord. There’s also a large balcony, the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee. The kitchen has a cooker, dishwasher, fridge with a small freezer, coffee machine, microwave, etc. There is also a bathroom and a bedroom on the second floor.

One fantastic feature of these accommodations is that they are just metres from the boats.

FOOD & DRINK

As this is an all-inclusive package, all food is supplied throughout the trip. A hearty breakfast is served each morning in the restaurant, ensuring you are fuelled and ready for a day on the water. Lunches are made and served on the boat, and then when you return home from fishing, a three to five course evening meal is prepared and served in the restaurant. This trip also includes afternoon tea and cake.
