This has been the greatest experience we have had in a long time! Frank and Bjørn were wonderful hosts. My 9 and 4 year old got to pet their dog; steer the boat; try to fish (got just a small one, but still was fun!); eat snacks and fish soup… and all with the beautiful backdrop of the fiords. I would really recommend this to families, as an activity where kids are really welcomed! Thank you for the fantastic experience!

Vi hadde en flott tur i nydelig vær og flotte lysforhold. Ikke noe fiskelykke å skryte av, men det var grøt p prøve. Frank gjorde opplevelsen fullkommen. Vi ble bare 6 deltagere da en ble syk, Frank nevnte at han skulle ordne så vi fikk refundert den ene. Takk for nå, vi kommer gjerne igjen!

A cool experience. Both the captain and his two sons were very friendly, they told us stories and served us a very tasty salmon soup. Regarding wildlife, we could only see sea eagles but they also taught us how to fish in the waters of the Norwegian Sea. Recommended experience!

Very nice walk in the fjords in a small group. With a cod fishing trip! And for the greediest of what to eat: fruits, small cakes ... and waffles! A beautiful moment in the heart of nature with explanations but also moments of silence

Great day with Frank and his first mate. Lovely Fjord cruise with great views. Got lucky with the weather. The fish soup was delicious and hearty. Highly recommend if you like boat activities. Wear warm shoes!
