King Crab Safari

Sjøgata 2, 9750 Honningsvåg, Norway

Experience a day in the life of an arctic king crab fisherman. These critters were originally native to Russia but spread all across the northern Norwegian coast in the 20th century and are now a common menu item at local restaurants. From your deep-sea raft, chances are that your crab pot won’t come up empty: Millions of king crabs populate the seas around Honningsvåg. Back on land, you’ll learn how to cook the crab in the traditional Sami way before sitting down and sampling your catch of the day.
