Fishing in Henningsvær

Henningsvær is by some called the capital of winter cod fishing, as some of the richest fishing grounds are located in its vicinity. During the winter months this small village, spread around small islands, is bustling with life. February to April is the high season for fishing, and until mid-June you can see and smell the characteristic racks of cod hung up to dry – both in Henningsvær and elsewhere in Lofoten. Although winter is peak time, a fishing trip in the Vestfjord is a great experience all year.
