Perfect fishing holiday in Norway

Norway | Norway is not only a very popular holiday destination because of its breathtaking nature. It is also a paradise for fishing enthusiasts. Deep sea fishing in the North Sea, coastal fishing at the banks of the fjords, freshwater fishing at one of over thousand lakes or demanding salmon fishing in mountain rivers – there is something for every fishermen. And the abundance of fish almost guarantees a perfect fishing day.

At the coast where you are very likely to encounter coal fish, mackerel and cod fishing is mainly free of charge. This means simply “cast the fishing rod and off you go!” When angling in rivers and lakes in the mainland usually a local fishing fee applies. Information on fees and regulation can usually be obtained from the local tourist information or at fishing and sports shops.

In order to guarantee a perfect fishing vacation you should book the appropriate holiday house. This way you keep your independence as many holiday homes are ideally equipped for fishing holidays. When using the atraveo search just click on “Further characteristics”, then on “Special properties” and then choose “Fishing holidays”. You will get a selection of houses which usually provide filleting tables, large deep freezers and possibly a barbecue. Most of these houses are situated right next to a body of water – whether coast, lake or river depends on the region and location you are looking for – and then usually provide a small jetty and a rowing or motor boat.

What could be better for a fishing enthusiast after a successful day than sitting in the evening on the holiday house’s terrace, enjoying Norway’s great nature whilst the catch of the day is cooking on the barbecue.

Popular regions for a Norway holiday with atraveo customers are: Norway’s fjords, Norway’s mountains, the area around the Oslo Fjord as well the island group Lofoten.

    “Stamsund did not experience as if there were so many attractions, restaurants or shopping opportunities but we did not have the requirements when we booked the house (because we had a car). For our part, Leknes was about when we were going to shop or go to a restaurant (10 min by car). Stamsund is a great place to stay if you are a car cage, we had very nice excursions every day, really good location. It should be borne in mind that you do not go to Lofoten to keep going so our shopping requirements were not the primary thing, it was Lofoten and Lofoten is amazing, we had a really nice holiday we will never forget. Should you see Lofoten you should have access to a car and then it does not matter how much you live, Stamsund is okay.

    “Stamsund is well situated for exploring the Lofoten in both northern and southern direction. Shop nearby within walking distance. Every evening moor two boats of the Hurtigruten, interesting to see. Make sure contact with the local artist's work, a gifted painter, musician, storyteller, ... you find him in the street to the wharf”

    “Port unattractive, small town without acitivities possible in an easy way.
    For cons the people are friendly, there are car rentals cheap and grocery stores open until 22h. Direct destinations are against beautiful!”
