Nusfjord Nappstraumen

Classical Norway


This is a truly unique location. This is Norway's oldest and best preserved fishing village. No less than 46 homes in authentic condition are offered in and around the harbour. This unique bay with monumental status is a true attraction of the Lofoten. The houses are original and completely rebuilt on the inside, with the forge, sawmill, boathouses and oil refinery preserved and on display. You will be staying, as it were, in a living museum. What's more, this location is extremely well sheltered. The mountain ranges of the Lofoten themselves offer protection from the ocean to the South West and Nusfjord itself is also a small distance inland. So even when the weather is less, you can most surely go fishing here.


On the south side of the island of Flakstadøya, in the heart of the Lofoten, you will find this unique and high quality fish camp. The Nusfjord lies directly at the entrance of the Nappstraumen and the famous Vestfjord is just a stone throw away. At this location all fishing wishes can be fulfilled. Halibut, cod, wolffish, coalfish, ling, plaice, haddock and all in XXL format.


With a look at the sea chart it is immediately clear what halibut potential this location has. Here it is literally an abundance of choices. There are several halibut hotspots in just a few minutes sailing and that also means that you won't need too much fuel here. Directly before the exit of the Nusfjord is a large sandy plateau where you will get a new dimension when it comes to plaice fishing.


The absolute top spots for halibut and cod are the currents Nappstraumen and Kåkersund. These spots will be etched in the memory of the fishermen. For the die-hard halibut fisherman, this is a place you must have been. Local tidal currents make it a real experience to fish here and guarantee nice fishing adventures!


Have a look at the article by John Smit from Dutchanglers to Nusfjord.


But in addition to halibut fishing, cod and coalfish are also very well represented here. Both in the Nappstrumen as well as in the Buskenesfjord there is a large amount of underwater mountains offering a variety of fish. In February to April it is the Skrei that is represented here in large numbers. And till the end of May also the wolffish. Towards the end of the summer the area is swarmed with large coalfish. Specimens of 15+ kilos are the torpedoes of the north and will bend your rod deep into its handle. Of course there are also tusk, redfish, haddock and with a bit of luck monkfish.


There are 46 modern, comfortable homes located directly at the water and comfortably furnished. The houses have been preserved in their old state and completely renovated to current standards. The different types offer space for 2 to 4 persons. All houses are equipped with a fully equipped kitchen, with coffee maker, dishwasher, stove, oven and refrigerator. There is also a cosy living room with dining area and a sitting area with TV. Furthermore, the houses have a shower with toilet and underfloor heating and wifi is also available.
