Wanna try to fry the bigger fish?


Yeah, that’s right; our fish can be quite big. On 70 degrees north it is halibut, cod, catfish and redfish that will be your catch. Come to Hammerfest and get cod over 20 kg and halibut over 80 kg! Here you can get a taste of the ocean and fry or steam your fish.

Learn more about local recipes and find out how to make the halibut real tasty. Visit Sørøya Gjestestue to get blown away by the fishing experience on the outer lines of Sørøya, Norways fourth biggest island. Visit Seiland Explore on the majestic island of Seiland for your trophy halibut or catch enormous cod in Kokelv Sjøhus with Jan and Ellen as your host.
