Havoysund Arronet boat

Topspot for halibut
This is an absolute prime location in our portfolio of Northern Norwegian locations. Havøysund is located north east of Soroya at 71º North latitude and close to the North Cape. The name Havoysund has proven itself over the years as one of the top spots to catch nice numbers and sizes of halibut. But apart from halibut, serious sizes of cod, catfish, redfish, coalfish, plaice and tusk are also caught here. This is definitely a place where you can improve your PB for all these species. And with one a guide for free onboard that should work out just fine!
In less favourable weather, this location offers the possibility of sheltered fishing. meaning virtually no fishing days are lost in the event of less favourable weather. Apart from the location itself, the nature here is also very impressive. Rock formations, flora and fauna are untouched and overwhelming here. Over the past few years, this location has developed into a top spot where halibut is caught regularly and in a targeted manner. This is an absolute top spot and so it is recommended to book early. A year in advance is really no luxury!


If you book your fishing trip here, you also get a fishing guide on board for 1 day at no extra cost. This is arranged on the spot and it goes without saying that every group wants the fishing guide on board as early as possible in their week. So the earlier you book the more likely it is that the guide can join you at the start of your fishing week.
The fishing locally is very good. Not only is the number of fishing spots particularly great but also the diversity of the spots is great  There is a channel near the harbour where it is 5 to 8 metres deep and where you can target large plaice and smaller halibut. This is done by sight since the water here is so clear. 
And how about the various spots around the islands of Masoya, Hjelmsoya, Ingoya and Rolfsoya. Each and every one of these have dozens of top spots where you can fish and where we have welcomed many fish on board over the past 15 years. 
There are 7 houses available at this location, all of which can accommodate 5 people and have 3 bedrooms with single beds. The houses are a short distance from the boats and between 60 and 95 m2. There is a living room with TV, Wifi, sofa, dining table with chairs and a fully equipped kitchen. And of course there is a separate shower/toilet combo. The houses are fully equipped and bed linen, towels, water, electricity and final cleaning are included.
There is also a sheltered filleting room, large general freezer, a heated drying room to store fishing clothes so that they are dry again the next day. In short, everything is provided for a perfect fishing week or 2!
Within walking distance of the houses you will find the COOP supermarket with an extensive range where you are going to find all the supplies you need because of the extensive range. Or you can walk in the other direction to the pub / restaurant where you can go for a nice beer or a meal. But beware. It's not going to be cheap. 
There are 7 Arronet boats of 7.3 metres (23.5 feet) with 135 and 150 HP 4-stroke engines. The boats are equipped with colour fishfinder, gps, radar and vhf radio. The Gps / fishfinder is a whopping 12 inches and Garmin 6012 type. The boats also have 14 horizontal rod holders and around the boat, there are 6 angled rod holders for bait fishing with an extra rod if required. A gaf and brush are also standard on board. So all in all, these are perfect fishing boats that leave nothing to be desired. They have good sailing characteristics and are extremely safe.
Refuelling the fishing boats can be done at the local port where you can use your credit card to fill up the boat directly as the refuelling column is right by the water. On site, you get a detailed explanation about the fishing boat, safety, use, sailing, refuelling and all other relevant issues. 
The guide is very well kexperienced and has been fishing here for more than 10 years, so he knows every rock and spot to make your fishing trip a success.
The season starts in April and runs until mid-October. It can be cold in Havoysund and when we have the first 20+ degrees in middel Europe in May, it can easily still snow there. So bring warm clothes and make sure you put them on in several layers. If you don't have fishing overalls, you can rent them there too.
You fly from your local airport to Alta on Friday and there you have the choice of driving to Havoysund by rental car or car from the location owner. This last part of the journey takes about 3 hours and goes over beautiful roads and scenery. Friday is the fixed changeover day and you will stay for a week and fish for 6 full days on your own boat. 
At this location, it is possible to book the trip including a rental car from the location. For this, they have a number of Toyota Hiace vans available that are well maintained and fully insured. you pick it up at Alta airport and then drive it yourself to Havoysund at leisure. The prices shown below also include a rental van but exclude fuel. How easy is that!
Meals can be arranged by yourself as you can do the necessary shopping for that at the nearby supermarket. Be quick because full = full and this location is very popular.
