This tour is conducted by Roy Sætre Arctic Trip. A great summer activity which combines fishing and kayaking in a safe way. This trip is a low-treshold trip, you do not need any experience beforehand.
Let's get out on the water and catch some fish! A unique possibility to try kayak fishing in a lake, a slow moving river, or in protected coastal seawaters. We will choose the place taking into account the weather conditions and your wishes. Recreational paddling is a perfect way to relax and enjoy the silence and the beauty of Northern Norwegian nature. With kayaks you get a different perspective, and you can also manage to come closer to sea birds and animals. Guaranteed an experience for a lifetime.
This is an all-inclusive, private tour for maximum four persons. The perfect choice for a couple, a small family, or a group of friends. Bigger groups on request. We have two single kayaks and one family kayak, which is for two adults and one child. These sit-on-top kayaks are stable, safe, and easy to use. You do not need any experience on kayaking or fishing beforehand. But if you have some, we will adjust our tour suitable for you.
You can catch mainly cod and haddock in the sea, and arctic char and trout in fresh waters in our region. If we catch some fish, we will prepare the food on a bonfire. We will also prepare lunch on the shore.
You will be guided by experienced, local guides with plenty of tips and stories to share. Do not hesitate to contact us, it is always possible to customize the tour to your needs.
It is also possible to do a longer trip including overnight in a tent and tent sauna on the shore. Please contact us for price and more information.
