Since time immemorial the nearby waters have been renowned for great fishing. In its heyday almost a thousand fishermen would sail out from Støtt’s harbour. The local museum has many fascinating stories to share. Today, Støtt is still a lively fishing community and fishermen continue to deliver their daily catch. Mindful of tradition, Restaurant Gammelbutikken still produces its own rack-dried cod.

Join us for a very special hands-on weekend of fishing and coastal culture at Støtt. Experienced guides will select our boat, sailing route and fishing gear best for current conditions. You can start your adventure from Bodø; the afternoon express boat to Støtt takes just one hour and 15 minutes.

On the quay, we’ll welcome you and give you a tour of the museum that highlights Støtt’s coastal culture and fisheries heritage. Also on the menu is a seafood dinner in Restaurant Gammelbutikken. Accommodation is in Rorbua, a fisherman’s cabin. The weekend programme includes accompanying a professional fisherman on his boat, as well as a day on your own small boat, then preparing and eating your catch. The express returns you to Bodø Sunday evening at 18:40.

Price: NOK 4900 per person.
