Andøy offers great possibilities for both sea and freshwater fishing. You can go on one of the guided fishing trips, or go fishing yourself. In the boxes above you see several operators who offer fishing trips. You can fish for sea trout, halibut, salmon, haddock, plaice, mackerel, monkfish, ling, tusk.. You name it.
You need a fishing license (`fiskekort` in Norwegian) to go freshwater fishing in lakes and rivers. You can buy your license at inatur.no and at several shops in Andøya. Fishing licenses are valid in specific areas and for specific time periods only, so be sure that you know where you’re going before you buy a licence.
You don’t need a fishing licence for fjord and sea fishing in seawater.
So if you want an authentic outdoors experience in Norway, plan a fishing holiday. Visit Andøy during the summer season and try your luck around the clock under the midnight sun, or brave the winter cold to take part in the famous skrei (migrating cod) fishing or ice fishing under the northern lights. Fish tend to get bigger in cold water, which is why a winter adventure may be exactly what you are looking for.
