Fishing Trip on MS Symra

Experience fishing in Lofoten on board our authentic fishing boat. Our professional crew will provide the best guidance on our 4 hour fishing trip from Svolvær.

Fishing in Lofoten varies greatly with the season, and in summer, we catch several types of fish, like pollock, haddock, mackerel and coastal cod.

MS Symra is our traditional fishing boat, and she turned 100 years old in 2017. She is a comfortable boat built specifically for Lofotfisket and is certified for 38 passengers. She is protected by the Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage. The trip includes sea fishing with line wheel. Our fishing guide gives instructions how to use the equipment. There are 10 fishing stations on board, so our guests must expect to share these between them on the trip.

What a treat! The weather was rather gloomy and gray - that's why we decided to go for an expedition with a rib boat to see Trollfjorden and sea eagles. Friendly and smiling staff welcomed us and everything we needed to be warm and comfortable - and safe - for the trip was provided. Tord was our "captain" and did a beautiful job handling the larger and larger waves that were teasing us in the heavier and heavier wind. Due to the weather, we didn't see much of the mountains and spectacular surroundings, but it was still an incredibly fun ride and Tord served a bunch of fun stories and information along the way. As promised, we also got to see and feed many beautiful, large sea eagles. At one point there were nine of them soaring over us! Along with plenty of the expert fliers, yet admittedly less spectacular seagulls. Trolldalen was beautiful, even if the skies were gray and the clouds hid some of the mountain peaks' magnificence. Despite really rough waters, Tord brought us back to shore safe and sound. And the best of it all; my husband who gets seasick from just looking at a bath tub, did not feel sick one second of the trip - just as they said at the office when we talked to them about his challenge!

The trip was very enjoyable, from start to end the guide shared with us some background history about Svolvær, the islands around, fishing industry and his thoughts on efforts to protect the environment. When we arrived to the fishing area, it didn't take us more than 1 minute to catch two fish already! It was amazing. The guide explained us very well about the type of fish and even how to cook it. In the end we all caught good amounts of fish and the guide even filleted the fish for us while explaining us fun facts about the fish insides :) in the end, we were allowed to take all the fish we caught home which was great! A totally worthwhile trip.

My husband and I went on the sea eagle safari- it was a highlight of our trip! We went out on a calm day, so the trip was a very smooth ride. The warm suits and goggles provided meant that we stayed comfortable throughout. On the busier of the two boats out ( an English speaking and a Norwegian boat) goggles with face shields were provided due to Corona restrictions. Anyway, after a few minutes we stopped and eagles miraculously appeared! There must have been around 10-12 around, circling the skies or perched on rocks. The skipper threw fish into the sea and it was thrilling to see the eagles swoop down. My only complaint is that there were too many to watch to try and photograph the action! We then took a beautiful trip to Trollfjord and enjoyed the scenery and tales about the area. On the way back we stopped at a different spot and again eagles appeared! When I got home and looked through the hundreds of pictures taken, I was quite disappointed with the ‘action shots’ (user error, not lack of opportunity!) so decided to book again the following day to practice my photography skills. I think that this trip represents excellent value for money- to get to see these magnificent creatures up close is priceless!

Tourist trap. They don't state clearly that the fishing has to be done in pairs, so you actually only fish half of the time. Moreover you have to sail 45 minutes to the fishing spot. There we caught one big fish, but because one person was feeling "sick" we had to go close to the shore again and caught fish to small to keep. Keep away.
