Original King Crab Safari excl. Transfer - Departure 09:30
Join our unforgettable King Crab safari in Kirkenes, Northern Norway. Our experienced guides/fishermen will take you on a tour in our open RIB boat to the location for the fishing.
Kirkenes is known as Norways' King Crab capital. Today, this delicacy has become a major export commodity. Originally, this shellfish comes from Russia and can grow as much as 2 meters in diameter and weigh as much as 15 kg. Those we tend to fish here in Kirkenes usually weight around 7 kg.
From the 30th of April until the 30th of November, we use our RIB-boats to reach the fishing location. The beginning and the end of the season (snowmobile or RIB-boat) may vary depending on the climate. When the ocean is no longer covered with ice, we use our RIB-boats. The RIB-boat excursion is an action-packed adventure itself. When we have arrived at our location, you can take pictures of these fascinating creatures. You can also help lift the toes from the sea. The catch of the day will be served at the end of the tour in our rustic boathouse restaurant.
