​May, June and July offer the most stable fishing weather and lovely midnight sun. This means long, bright days and infinite time for fishing. The dream of the big Cod draws most deep sea anglers here in the summer.

In addition to chasing the big Cod, summer can offer intense combat with the big Coalfish, meeting the Catfish face to face, or for the toughest; the hunt for the large Halibut. 

​The Halibut is a mysterious fish of which the scientists know very little. Some are wanderers, while others stay in a small area. The Halibut population around Sørøya has grown during the past few years. 

For many of the guests, the giant Halibut of up to 100 kilos is the big deep sea fishing dream. Small Halibut up to 30-40 kilos are mainly found in shallower waters, and can be caught all season. The giant Halibut, however, stays in deeper waters most of the year, but in late summer it moves to shallower water to feed. 

​If you are among those who dream of wrestling the giant Halibut, August and September are good months. A duel with this giant is the ultimate test of manhood

Big Fish Adventure Norway

Big Fish Adventure - Hasvik Hotel and Housing is one of the oldest and most well-established providers of deep sea fishing in Northern Norway. There is hardly a better place in the world for deep sea fishing than Sørøya. The scenery is rough, stunning and raw, the water is pure, and there is an abundance of fish. More fishing records have been set at Sørøya than anywhere else in the world.
The Sørøya climate can be rough, harsh and strenuous at times, but also incredibly exciting. They are far North, next to the Arctic Sea, with the fishing grounds right outside the window. The proximity to the Gulf Stream gives ice-free ports, and despite the harsh climate, deep sea fishing conditions are usually good.  

The arctic landscape offers midnight sun and around the clock light in exotic summer months and polar nights with magical northern lights during winter. Here your dreams of the giant Cod, the big Coalfish, the monstrous Catfish or a large Halibut come true. ​Sørøya is unique in a deep sea fishing context, the peak season lasts all year

In March-April the arctic Cod comes to the fjords to spawn, and the sea practically boils. The arctic climate offers winter storms so tough that you can see no longer that the tip of your nose, as well as calm seas and clear skies. Although there may be a few days in port due to bad weather, you have a great chance to catch the coveted trophy fish. This season is for the toughest of anglers.

Big Fish Adventure Fishing Packages

Big Fish Adventure 10 day trip

Most guests choose a 10 day trip simply because you don't want to leave once you have arrived at Sørøya. This is perhaps also the reason why most people who visit them opt to return again.

Guests usually prefer to be skipper on their own boat, but they also give you the opportunity to rent a larger boat with a skipper and guide.

The 10 day trips usually go from the 10th to the 20th, 20th to 30th, etc. of each month. An ordinary 10 day "package" is a house (for up to 6 people) and 2 x 19 foot boats.


​7 days at Sørøya will give you plenty of time to fish, whether you choose to be the skipper of your own boat or join an experienced skipper on an organized fishing trip.

​An ordinary "week package" is normally a house (for up to 6 people) and 2 x 19 foot boats for fishing on your own.


​A long weekend is perfect if you want a condensed deep sea fishing experience. You will arrive by plane on Wednesday afternoon and can enjoy a relaxed evening at the hotel with a good meal. If you wish to be skipper on your own boat, the boat will be handed to you shortly after your arrival. 

A boat with a skipper can also be a good alternative. This will give you the choice between one or several days. It can often be a good solution to have a boat with skipper on the first day in order to get acquainted with the area and learn about the best fishing spots.

Before you go fishing, you will have the opportunity to meet the Big Fish Adventure deep sea fishing guides who will give you the best information on fishing grounds, equipment and safety.

You will stay at the hotel in a single or double room, and have all inclusive.


Whether you want a different length to your stay or travel with your business and want your own package, Big Fish Adventure will tailor it to your wish.

With all packages If you don't want to bring your own equipment you can rent fishing tackle at the hotel. Jigs, spinners, and other equipment can be purchased at the hotel store.
