Explore the arctic on a tour through fishing villages, getting a chance to see and hold a live king crab. The tour includes a meal of fresh king crab, served with bread, lemon, mayonnaise and mineral water.

We pick you up in the town of Honningsvåg, before we travel by coach across our island, making view stops along the way. We will visit a nearby village, going to the harbour with its fishing boats. We make a stroll around the village, exploring the local way of life.

We make a sightseeing by coach in the town of Honningsvåg, visiting a local art gallery and the church, which is the oldest building on the island. We will have a look at the town hall, the school and kinder garden, the shopping street and the service docks for the fishing industry. We will bring you up close to the everyday life of an arctic village.

We also visit the king crabs where you get a live presentation of their life and history in the middle of stunning arctic scenery. ​After the presentation you will enjoy a meal of fresh king crab, served with bread, lemon, mayonnaise and mineral water.

You pay for all the seats in the minibus (or big bus) regardless of the size of your group.
