Original King Crab Safari - Winter

Departures at 09:30, 13:00 or 17:00

If requested, our fisherman/guide will pick you up at your hotel, and take you on a 15 minute drive to the Snowhotel.

Upon arrival, your guide will help you dress and give you a security instruction as you will be driven by sled pulled by a snowmobile. Then the journey starts and we drive out on the frozen fjord to find the holes where the King Crab traps are set. You will help pulling the cages up from the depths, heavy with King crab. Your knowledgeable guide will tell you interesting facts about the fascinating and huge King crab, as we look at the crabs, and prepare them for dinner.

After getting some mandatory pictures with your big catch, we had back to the Snowhotel restaurant. Next step on the journey is learning how we cook the crabs.

After that, it's time to relax in the restaurant and enjoy the view with a cup of coffee or tea, while the Crabs are being steamed.

The Crab legs are served northern Norwegian style with bread, butter, mayonnaise and lemon, and our expert will also teach how to open the legs like a king or queen. Drinks, as wine, beer or mineral water can be ordered by the table.
If requested, our driver will take you back to your hotel in Kirkenes after your meal.
