Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:
King Crab Campfire
The Norwegian Sea is home to the gigantic king crab, weighing up to an impressive 33 pounds and spanning six feet from claw to claw. Introduced to the Barents Sea by Russian scientists during the 1960s, the king crab thrived in these frigid waters and can now be found along the northern Norwegian coast. Its meat is comparable to lobster and fetches a high price in the commercial marketplace. The catch in the crab pot will most likely be between six and 15 pounds.

What you will see along the way:
Honningsvag:
A charming fishing community located at the most northerly point in Europe, Honningsvag is characterized by its colorful wooden structures and spectacular natural scenery of waterfalls and fjords.

Lunch:
Savor the taste of the fresh king crab, served with bread and butter and coffee brewed over an open fire. The presentation of the crab is simple, but the freshness of the white leg meat and claws, which are juicy and sweet, make this local delicacy an unforgettable treat.

Special Notes:

Not suitable for guests who have an allergy to shellfish. Do not leave your belongings on the bus, as a different vehicle may be used for the return journey. A local, English-speaking crab specialist will accompany you. Infants under two years of age must have an infant car seat (not provided). Walking on sand is required at the lavvo tent and to view the crab pots; otherwise, very little walking is required on this tour.
