Are you a group of friends, colleagues, or perhaps a couple that would love the explore something extraordinary? Surrounded by beautiful and majestic mountain that ranges both to the east and to the west, the national parks Folgefonna in the west and Hardangervidda to the east with Sørfjorden in between. Over time this fjord, especially during winter (winter months), has proven to be a good spot for fishing with spawning fish such as coastal cod and sea lyre.

Difficulty and requirements

The only physical challenge you might be facing on this tour is the descent into the boat and the ascent back onto the pier after the tour. Especially at low tide this might require climbing a wooden ladder which can be slippery when wet. Please inform your guide of any medical conditions that might impact you during your tour or in an emergency.

Requirements:

  • Minimum age to participate: 8 years, children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult
  • Biggest clothing size: XXXL
  • Minimum number of 2 participants for the tour to run
Duration and distance

Approximately 4,5 hrs • Descent and accent only into and out of the boat

Meet up

We recommend being at the meeting point 10 minutes before the official meeting time. Please use the bathroom before the tour.

  • 11am. Meet your guide and travel companions by Tourist Information in Odda city centre
  • or by the pier in the garden of Hotel Ullensvang in Lofthus (you need to walk through the hotel to get there – please ask at reception if in doubt)

You choose the meet up point as part of the booking.

Weather

The Fishing is one of the activities where weather does not matter. We run the tour in all weather conditions and every type of weather has its moments of beauty. Of course, we will adapt our driving style to the wind, rain and wave conditions.  


You should adapt your clothing according to these conditions. Even though the floatation suits keep you nice and warm, be aware that you do not move much, and the wind will cool you down quite a bit.  


Nevertheless, the Fjord Fishing is the perfect bad weather alternative and always an experience.

What to bring

Depending on the weather conditions:  

  • Lunch for 4-5 hours, just in case we dont get any fish..
  • Normal hiking/outdoor cloths. Rain cloths if the weather is with a lot of rain.
  • Sunscreen  
  • Sunglasses  
  • Head band or beanie (always good to have, even on a warmer day)
  • Buff or scarf  
  • Gloves or mittens
  • Camera or phone

Additional info

You can choose to start your tour in downtown Odda or by Hotel Ullensvang in Lofthus. Once in the boat, you lean back and enjoy the ride, jump the waves, until we arrive to our fishing spots. With a bit of luck, you might spot some porpoise whales or even one of the golden eagles nesting by the steep cliffs along the fjord.  

Over 4 hours your skipper/guide takes you to some of the most interesting spots and attractions by the fjord and shares many fun facts and fascinating stories about the glacier, farming tradition of the area and much more.

We will use most of the time fishing, but we will also work with how to process the fish after catching it. There is room for everyone to fish, but also to relax by a bonfire and enjoy the view of the fjord. In most cases we do 'catch and release', but if you want to bring your self-caught fish back home, you are welcome to do so.
