Norway for the best in fishing holidays!

NorwayFishing is an important part of Norwegian outdoor recreation traditions. About half the adult population goes fishing at least once a year. There is cod, coalfish, halibut and mackerel to be caught all along the coast, and salmon, sea trout and red char swim in many rivers. Freshwater lakes and ponds are abundant with pike, perch, eel, trout and char. Salmon fishing in Norway has long and glorious traditions. The first visitors from Britain were the so-called Salmon Lords who arrived in the early 19th century to fish for the big salmon. Members of the British aristocracy enjoyed the magnificent landscape and fished the mighty rivers of Norway’s fjord region and in effect created the basis for tourism in Norway.

Between February and April the Norwegian coast of scene of one of nature's magnificent events.  From the enormous, nutrient-rich grazing areas in the Barents Sea in the north, the arctic cod, Skrei, arrive by the millions. Experience fantastic fishing for really huge cod under the Northern Lights.
