Hemmingodden Nappstraumen

Lofoten to the max!
Hemmingodden is the new top location on the Lofoten! Located in Ballstad, just around the corner from Nappstraumen, this is a comfortable and very professional fishing location. The lodge is located right on the water and offers several types of holidayhomes and fishing boats. From this location the fishing is just perfect. The lodge is located very sheltered in the southern part of the Lofoten and overlooks the fjord and impressive mountains which are so distinctive for the Lofoten.
Nappstraumen is a very well known and good fishing area. With the coming and going of the tides, both in the Nappstraumen and the various islands and shallows around Ballstad and surroundings, there is a perfect current where the fish linger to find their prey of the day.
To the left you sail into the Nappstraumen area and to the right into the Buksnesfjorden where you can still catch your fish when the weather is not so good. Take the professional fishing boats and the impressive surroundings and you find yourself in the Valhalla of Norway.

South of the Nappstraumen there are several islands such as Svinoya, Eggeloysa, Kvalbaken, Folfoten, Graenholmen and Batskjaeret. The Straumen itself is around 45 meters deep and these islands and surrounding shallows are perfect spots for halibut. To the south with outgoing water and to the north with rising water you can catch your dream fish here. But also cod, pollock on the deeper parts where it drops to 100 meters and more. Or haddock, ling, redfish and catfish. And how about pollock around the islands? Nice active fishing casting your sandeels or shads. You can do any type of fishing here, even up to popping for coalfish in the right season.

As with most locations, you will be short of days here. In combination with the top boats, beautiful apartments / cottages, this is a new gem in our portfolio where many guests enjoy going and even more will enjoy returning.

You stay in traditional, modern, comfortable and soulful fisherman's cabins that all have a story to tell. Enjoy the opportunity to live close to nature and everyday life in a vibrant fishing village. Experience the magnificent sea, the majestic mountains and the magical light of Lofoten. Find that wonderful tranquillity in our fisherman's cabins and how it feels to come home.

To get to this location, there are two possibilities.

1. Or you fly to Leknes airport which is 15 minutes drive from the location and we arrange a transfer for 150 Euros for a return trip for max 4 people. These flights to Leknes are often more expensive and extra luggage is more difficult to arrange.

2. The second option is that you fly to Evenes and we arrange a rental car for you there. From there it is about 3.5 hours drive. That is quite long but the road is really beautiful and a "must see".
