King Crab Safaris

KI16 King Crab fishing in Kirkenes

A totally unforgettable experience awaits you on  the frozen fjords of Kirkenes.  This is your  chance to catch, learn how to cook, and most importantly EAT this mysterious creature.  The Arctic King Crab is one of the most sort after meals in top restaurants, and yet here, you  get to eat the best and the freshest, pulled from the fjord in front of your eyes.  You all take  part in helping to saw the hole in the ice and bring up the catch. You will see how the crab is prepared by your master guide, and you will be taken by snowmobile sledge (an experience in itself) to a beautiful farmhouse by the lake. It is here by a cosy log fire that your King Crab meal awaits. Although presentation is simple, the superb, white leg meat and claws with their particularly juicy and naturally sweet taste make this meal in a league of its own.
