Fishing Villages in North Norway

Norway’s fishing has grown in popularity and many tourists seek the Lofoten Islands in both winter and summer. The biggest cods are usually caught between January and April. On the fish-finder, you might see a cod stacked from the surface all the way to the bottom. Another highlight is the famous halibut fishing. Summer is the time to catch halibut, although the biggest often turn up in the autumn.

Norwegian fishing camps along the Lofoten coast differ in size and comfort levels, but the sea is exactly the same whether you choose to stay in Svinøya Rorbu, Reine Rorbu, Melbu or drive to the end of the island archipelago to the tiny village with the shortest name: Å.
