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 the fjord near Kirkenes. The guide will take you by snowmobile sledge out on the fjord ice. On the ice, you will learn how to catch the King Crabs and even see how to prepare it. You can pose with the King Crabs for a photo before heading to a small and cozy restaurant.

The tour will end in a beautiful restaurant by the fjord, where you will get to eat the crab, served in the Norwegian way. The superb, white meat of the legs and claws is particularly juicy and has a natural sweet taste.
