This tour suits anyone who may not have a great deal of experience with fishing, but still wants to give it a go and try to see if they enjoy it as many others do. You will receive proper guidance from our captain on the tour, and a taste of how fishing works in the North. You will also receive guidance in the usage of fishing equipment.
The weather in Alta can vary strongly from day to day, even hourly, however this is one of the charms of Finnmark. The fishermen here in North have learned over the years what good clothing suits the fjords, and we recommend the same for our guests.
- Woolen underwear as the first layer.
- Fleece jacket, woolen sweater or any other middle layer jacket.
- Headwear and mittens that can withstand the smell of fish.
- Boots or other insulated shoes.
