Kirkenes - King Crab Safari


This 4-hour King Crab Safari offers a unique experience of getting up close to the fascinating king crabs that inhabit the Northern Norwegian coast.
You will be picked up at your hotel for the transfer to a fjord near Kirkenes and transported on a sledge which will be pulled behind the guide’s snowmobile. Help the guide to saw the hole in the ice and bring up the catch; some of the largest and freshest king crabs in the world. You can of course pose with them for a photo before heading to an authentic fisherman’s cabin. Here the freshly caught king crabs will be prepared by your guide and served with bread by a cozy log fire. The superb, white meat of the legs and claws is particularly juicy and has a natural sweet taste.
