Kirkenes is proud to be known as Norways' King Crab capital. Today, this delicacy has become a major export commodity. Originally, this shellfish comes from Russia and can grow as much as 2 meters in diameter and weigh as much as 15 kg. Those we tend to fish here in Kirkenes usually weight around 7 kg.
With a brand-new high-speed RIB boat and seagulls gawking above your head our experienced fisherman guides will start an unforgettable original King Crab Fishing tour by taking you for a marine sightseeing outside Kirkenes. You will cruise along the fjord to find the right place to anchor. Then you head out for the cages, which are sunk deep to catch the biggest king crabs. You will be hands on deck to help pull up the king crab cages from the depths of the Varanger fjord. Once your wild catch is pulled out you can even take pictures with these fascinating creatures. The catch of the day will be served at the end of the tour in our rustic boathouse restaurant by the fjord, Northern Norwegian style: Pure, fresh and heavenly tasty!
