Join an exciting King Crab safari with a delicious King Crab lunch!

The town of Kirkenes is located by an Arctic fjord, with excellent King crab fishing facilities – there will always be a catch!  A totally unforgettable experience awaits you on the frozen fjords of Kirkenes. This is your chance to learn how to catch, cook, and most importantly EAT this mysterious creature. 

In this ultimate King crab fishing experience, you will be taken by snowmobile sledge* out on the fjord ice. Here you will take part in the entire experience of catching the giant, and seeing how it is prepared.

​(*In the beginning and the end of the season, the tour may go by boat, if the conditions are not suitable for snowmobile)
