With its rich and cold sea, the Senja region is the preferred destination among fishing enthusiasts. In the rich fishing grounds off the Senja coast, you can catch cod, coalfish, redfish, haddock, catfish, halibut and other fish species. Our activity providers are experts in finding the very best fishing spots. If you are lucky, you may encounter other Arctic wildlife during your fishing trip, like white-tailed eagles, porpoises and seals. Fishing trips by boat enable you to experience the Senja region’s unique and magnificent nature, which includes chalk white beaches, turquoise seas and majestic mountains.
If you come fishing in the wintertime, you might get a big cod on your hook! From January to April, the cod migrates to Northern Norway to spawn, making this one of the best times to catch this delicious fish. In addition, this is the Northern Lights season, which means you can fish during the day and enjoy the Northern Lights in all its glory in the evening.
In the summertime, you can go on a fishing trip at night and fish in the golden rays of the Midnight Sun. Senja also offers a rich selection of mountains and hiking areas you can visit when you are not out fishing.
Combine your fishing holiday with a stay at one of our many accommodation options. In the Senja region, you will find a wide selection of hotels, fishermen’s cottages, cabins, houses, apartments and campsites. Most accommodation providers offer boat rentals with or without a guide and can give you good advice about the right gear to use based on which fish species you want to catch.
