Affordable top fishing on the island of Senja


Affordable top fishing on the island of Senja
Very affordable prime location! 
Welcome to Steinfjord! This fishing camp has been around for many years but in 2017 it was completely renewed and renovated. It is located, how surprising, in the village of Steinfjord on the northwest side of the beautiful island of Senja high in northern Norway. The fish camp has a long fishing tradition as it used to be the local fish factory. And that was for a good reason and gives you an idea about the quality of fishing in this area. 
Bergsøyan. Here, the nutrient-rich gulf stream flows along the northern tip of the Lofoten directly in front of this perfectly located location for fishing. The fish-rich area in the immediate vicinity is the reason for the location of the old fish factory. Within 15 minutes by boat you reach fishing spots where you can catch record halibut, coalfish and cod all year round. If you study the depth chart closely, you will see that from the west, a great depth pushes the water up to a magnificent and elongated plateau where the food and associated fish can roam perfectly in search of their next snack.
Apart from the perfect fishing spots, you are going to experience breathtaking scenery, fascinating wildlife, majestic nature and an abundance of fishing fun here. It is also important to mention with this location that you can hire a fishing guide here. This can be for 1 day or several days or even the entire period. The costs for this are very reasonable and therefore attractive to make use of. And that is unique about this location in northern Norway.
