What’s your favourite catch? Halibut, cod or wolf-fish? Trout or salmon pulled from a river? Or do you prefer to go ice fishing and catch Arctic char? Maybe for you the fishing is secondary, and the most important thing is just to enjoy the boat trip or savour the tranquillity of your beautiful spot on the river?

In Helgeland the opportunities are many, regardless of whether you prefer freshwater or deep-sea fishing, and whether you want this to be exclusively a fishing holiday or are content with a single fishing trip

Here is an overview of places to stay where you can also rent a boat. Your hosts will gladly share tips about the best fishing spots, and which fishing gear is most likely to yield the catch of your choice.
