Fishing trips/adventure lasts about 4 to 5 hours, depending on weather conditions. We will of course do our best ensure that all our guests will have the opportunity to join. Should the weather conditions become too severe for the possibility of a tour we will offer an alternative, or agree upon a different date or a refund. Our goal is for get what you came for.
Whom does this trip suit?
This trip suits anyone who may not have a great deal of experience with fishing, but still wants to try an arduous yearly fishing attempt. You will receive proper guidance from our captain on the trip, and a taste of how fishing works in the North. You will also receive guidance in the usage of fishing equipment.
What should you have on you and with you?
The weather in Alta can vary strongly from day to day, however this is one of the charms of Finnmark. The fishermen her in north have learned over the years what good clothing suits the fjords, and we recommend the same for our guests.
We rent out thick coveralls and approved safety equipment upon request.
The boat is easily accessable by the E6, and is located on harbour in the bay of Utnes. If you are arriving from the south you should follow E6 through Bossekop to Alta centre, down to the bay and take off by Eurorpis, continue straight forward till you arrive by the harbour.
If you are arriving from the north, follow E6 through Rafsboten and across the Alta bridge, continue past the airport and take off by Europris.
What will you be joining?
You will meet up by the port and be welcomed by our captain, which is a local expert in the fjords of Alta.
You will be provided with necessary information in regards to what the day will bring, as well as safety on board and education in use of fishing equipment and other gear. Personal equipment can also be utilised. We then set course to the fjords in Alta from the port, and head for the best fishing spots according to which season and which species we are looking for.
We must always beware of weather conditions, but we will do our best to finish our trips if possible. If the weather leads to cancellation, we will try to setup a new trip as soon as possible or offer you other activities.
On the fishing trips, you can catch anything from cod, pollock, haddock, redfish, halibut to salmon, which are some of the most known fishing species in the fjords around here.
On our whale safaris the most common whales are killer whales (orcas) and sperm whales – they can appear anywhere at any time, and Altafjord gives a unobstructed view.
