Creatures of the Barents Sea: the mighty king crab (Honningsvåg)

Date: Wednesday 1 may 2019 - Monday 30 Sep 2019

Departing from the quaint little town of Honningsvåg, this tour immerses you in the world of the mysterious king crab.

Although the king crab is not an indigenous species, - it migrated from the Murmansk fjord in Russia - its presence has created a flourishing industry for the local fishermen.
By RIB boat, we will explore the area around Honningsvåg before pulling the crab pot and check our catch of the day. Your guide will give you the chance to take pictures and hold the animals before going back on land for a little lesson in history and anatomy.
Finally, you will get to taste this exclusive delicacy in a traditional Norwegian way, with bread, mayonnaise and lemon.
