Tne nature of this region rivals that of the much more famous Lofoten just to the south, but it's much less well known. And it's potantial as a sportfishing heaven largely untapped. It's never cramped on the water and you don't need to fight over the good spots.
We start our tours from Fjordcamp in Bø on the western side of Vesterålen. Fjordcamp is also where we provide accomodation for our guests. From here you have boat acsess to the well protected 7 fjord system where we do a lot of our fishing as well as only a 10 minute boat ride to where the open sea starts.
We are primarilly a guiding company, but we will also plan and book severalm other services for your convinience. We'll take you fishing, drive you to the supermarket, pick you up from the airport, arrange accomodation as well as provide general travel advice for the region.
We discovered this area many years ago by pure chance many years ago, and to our amazement we found very few places with accomodation and not a single fishing guide in the entire fjord system. This was not something we could allow to be left alona, a place like this need a flourishing sport fishing comunity.
Our goal is to make Verterålen and especially Bø a well known sport fishing destination.
