Deep Sea Fishing

at Kvænangen and Lopphavet
Deep sea fishing in Kvænangen from our base on Spildra, is a fantastic experience. The surroundings are magnificent with the characteristic mountains of Kvænangen. The area is known for large halibut, cod and saithe. Both catfish and anglerfish can also bite. If the weather is good, you can take the trip to Loppa, which is considered to be one of the most beautiful deep-sea fishing areas in Norway. This is one of the roughest coastal stretches with beautiful nature, but which is also extremely exposed to the weather.

Øksfjordjøkulen

The only glacier in the mainland of Europe, that calves in the sea.
A boat trip into the Jøkelfjord is a great way to experience the majestic Øksfjord glacier. It is mainland Europe's only glacier still calving in the sea. Here we collaborate with local glacier guides and randonee guides. They have generations of experience from the mountain areas and are good at complementing the nature experience, with old and new history from the area. We also have the opportunity for both dining and accommodation at "Isbreen the Glacier". Here you can spend the night in modern "igloos", with a view of the Øksfjord glacier.

Havnnes

Trading place from the 1800s.
Norway's northernmost preserved trading post in beautiful surroundings, in Lyngen. The place has been run by the Giæver family since 1868 and is still in operation. Here you can buy first-class ingredients from the sea.

Bird Life

The White-tailed Eagle and other bird life.
From Kvænangen you can take a trip to some of the most spectacular bird mountains along the coast. On the island of Loppa and Nord Fugløy there is a bustling life with puffins, alks, gulls, white-tailed eagle and many other species. For nature photography, this is a fantastic area. The season is from the beginning of May to the end of July.

Whale Watching

In the winter, Kvænangen is a perfect tourist destination for northern lights- and whale safaris. The Herring comes in from the north-sea at the end of October in huge quantities. Watching Killer whales, Humpback whales and Fin whales hunt Herring, is an unique experience. The Humpback whale is a bald whale and takes a lot of soot with it in a jiffy, while the killer whale is a toothed whale and eats one by one herring. It can be large quantities collected at the same time and a fantastic sight. Herring fishing is going on at the same time, and if you are lucky you can see how the whales use the fishing boats to get an easy catch. Occasionally, you also have the opportunity to swim/snorkel with the whales. This is 100% safe and a unique experience!

Northern Lights Safari

The northern lights also named "Aurora polaris" can be seen from October to March. One can get beautiful picture motifs, with the mountains of Kvænangen as a frame. The northern lights and whales are the greatest experience you can get in this area, in the cold season. It is especially beautiful northern lights in the area with little light pollution throughout Kvænangen. This is makes the Northern Lights appear extremely strong and clear.

Diving and Freediving

If you are interested in underwater activities, Spildra is ideal for this. It is currently a small known area and appears unique, untouched and beautiful. Here you can dive on wrecks, in high kelp forest with diverse types of anemones and great species richness on fish. You can find big cod, halibut, saithe, catfish, anglerfish. Here are also some fantastic dropoffs to several hundred meters. Several Norwegian and foreign freedivers visit Spildra for the fantastic opportunity for underwater hunting. At Spildra you will find a compressor, lead and spare parts for diving.

Paddling

At Spildra you can rent a kayak with all equipment. Kvænangen is wild and beautiful, and a paddle ride around the island is a wonderful experience. Here you can do a beach break on one of the beaches and enjoy wild northern Norwegian nature. Most likely you are completely alone.
