Big Fish Adventure – Hasvik Hotel & Self-catering is located on Soroya in the far north of Norway next to the Arctic Sea. However the proximity of the Gulf Stream means ice-free ports and deep sea fishing conditions that are usually good. More fishing records have been set at Sørøya than anywhere else in the world. The Sørøya climate can be tough and strenuous at times, but also extremely exciting where your dreams of giant cod, big coalfish, catfish and large halibut really do come true.
In March-April the arctic climate offers tough winter storms along with clear, calm days. Although there may be a few days in port due to bad weather, you have a great chance to catch the coveted trophy fish. This season is for the toughest.
May, June and July offers the most stable fishing weather and midnight sun with long, bright days and infinite time for fishing. In addition to chasing the big cod, summer can offer an intense combat with the big coalfish, meeting the catfish face to face, or for the toughest the hunt for the large halibut; with the halibut population around Soroya increasing during the past few years. If you are among those who dream of wrestling the giant halibut, August and September are good months.
Regardless of when you may choose to come here, you are sure of unforgettable fishing and world class Northern Norwegian hospitality.
