Seiland is the lesser-known island right next to Sørøya. Approximately the same size and known for the national park. Because it is in the lee of Sørøya, generally few days are lost to strong winds. The sheltered location in the Hønsebyfjorden also means that there is always a place to fish when the weather conditions do not cooperate.
The village of Hønseby accommodates this well-organised fishing camp. At a short distance (10 minutes by boat) you are directly in the Sørøysundet (strait) between Sørøya and Seiland. The differences in tides create a perfect current here. Because of the current between the two islands and the different underwater structures there is an accumulation of food and therefore also fish. Lots and lots of fish! Cod, wolffish, coalfish, redfish, halibut, haddock you name it. It's all there and in abundance. So make your move and come to Seiland. Chances are you'll catch those 30+ pounds of cod and halibut here!
Besides sea fishing it is also possible to fish for trout in the direct surroundings in the beautiful lakes. Don't forget to pack your spinning rods because you don't get this chance every day and certainly not in these beautiful surroundings!
This how a week of fun looks in Seiland!
