Original King Crab Safari - Departure 09:30
Three things that are a must on an arctic winter holiday and three good reasons people visit Snowhotel Kirkenes: snow, the northern lights and the king crab
On this tour, you may combine all of them if you are lucky. The Red King Crab is not only the biggest but also the most delicious shellfish you will ever have the chance of tasting. It`s time for you to make your own catch!
For this king crab fishing adventure, you will be picked up at your hotel in Kirkenes (Thon or Scandic) at your selected departure time. After a short ride, you will arrive at the Snowhotel, where warm clothing and boots will be provided to keep you warm in the cold Kirkenes winter weather. You then will be taken out on the fjord ice on a sleigh pulled by a snowmobile to look for the great beast accompanied by experienced fishermen and guides. You will step out on the frozen fjord and assist the fisherman in pulling the crab pods out of the deep waters through a hole in the ice. Maybe the northern lights will flicker across the sky as you get a picture taken with the biggest catch of the tour?
The journey will culminate in a warm, rustic farmhouse restaurant by the fjord, where you will enjoy a fresh king crab meal served the Norwegian way - juicy and irresistible! The portions are generous, so no one will leave the table hungry.
