Overview

Step into the shoes of the local of a Norwegian fishing village for a day and enjoy fishing, a guided walking tour, and a meal in a historic building on the charming Skrova Island.

Once the biggest fishing village in Lofoten, Skrova boasts a thriving community that has kept up with the times and has a long history of fishing and whaling.

Enjoy 3 hours of fishing with a fishing rod (no experience required) and catch fish like cod, pollock and mackerel. Vestfjorden has a healthy and rich ecosystem of marine life that is well managed, so the chances of catching a fish are very high.

Handover your fresh catch to a chef and then explore the town and learn about the local history, culture and stories about the island. Enjoy a savory 3-course served at around 2pm at a local restaurant in a historical building.

Soak in the breathtaking beauty of Lofoten and keep your eyes peeled for indigenous wildlife on the return sail while relaxing in the hot tub. 

Enjoy this tour aboard a luxurious and comfortable sailing yacht with professional, experienced and friendly crew. With 2 outer decks and a large interior saloon, there is plenty of space for all guests to enjoy the tour themselves or with each other. The yacht, S/Y Stella Oceana, is 118 tons, 32 meters long, 5 meters wide and has an ice classification. All of these features, along with the yacht's former Norwegian Coast Guard Sea Captain, make the ship extremely safe and stable to sail in arctic Norway.

Experience Skrova Island like a local and enjoy a day surrounded by nature. Spend time by the sea, take stunning photos and spot eagles, sea birds, and occasionally some whales and dolphins.
