Fishing in Norway will be an unforgettable experience!

In Norway there are many wonderful places to catch fish for both amateurs and professionals. Here, I would like to invite you to Lofoten, to the fishery in Risvaer.

The fishing ground in Risvær is located in the eastern part of the Lofoten, in the commune (kommunie) Vågan.
This small and charming archipelago consists of two main islets: Heimøya and Borterøya, where there are tourist centers offering fishing and accommodation facilities and small, rocky islets surrounding them.

What fish can be caught in Lofoten?

Depending on the season, these are mainly: cod (Gadus morhua), halibut (Reinhardtius hippoglossoides), coalfish (Pollachius virens), flounder, pollock (Pollachius pollachius), ling (Molva molva), duck (Anarhichas lupus), whiting (Merlangius merlangus), monkfish (Lophius piscatorius), redfish Scorpaenidae, brosma (Brosme brosme), haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus), salmon (Salmo salar), herring (Clupea harengus), mackerel (Scomber scombrus).

Who is Risvær a good place for?

Above all, for amateurs and intermediate people. Due to the very good natural conditions and the availability of experienced fishing guides everyone has a chance for a lot of fishing. A novice fisherman will receive adequate support so he can return home with trophies. More advanced anglers can show their skills in the Risvær waters.

How to get to Risvær?

It depends on where your accommodation is. And whether you are coming by car or plane. Probably the best solution for you will be a trip to Svolvær. There is an airport there, which can be reached directly from Oslo. There is also a ferry station that can be reached from Skutvik.

Occasional prices for accommodation in Svolvaer can be found below:
