Original King Crab Safari

Get your tickets here

Snow, Northern Lights and the king crab are three things that are a must on an arctic winter holiday. On this tour, you may combine all of them if you are lucky. The king crab is the biggest and most delicious shellfish you will ever have the chance of tasting. It's time for you to make your catch!

This king crab fishing adventure starts at Snowhotel Kirkenes. We expect your arrival at your booked departure time. At your arrival, we will provide you with warm clothing and boots. You then will be taken out on the fjord ice on a sleigh pulled by a snowmobile to look for the great beast accompanied by experienced fishermen and guides. Finally, you will step out on the frozen fjord and assist the fisherman in pulling the crab pods out of the deep waters through a hole in the ice. Maybe the Northern Lights will flicker across the sky as you get a picture taken with the biggest catch of the tour?

The journey will culminate in a warm, rustic farmhouse restaurant by the fjord, where you will enjoy a fresh king crab meal served Northern Norwegian style: Pure, fresh and heavenly tasty! The portions are generous, so no one will leave the table hungry.
