About us

European Halibut Capital

Torsvåg Havfiske is a 1 hour drive from Tromsø, located on the idyllic and serene Vannøy island. The area offers great opportunities for hiking in the summer and skiing and snowshoeing in the winter. With almost no light pollution there are great spots to look out for the Northern Lights. Our unique location towards the open sea makes it perfect for reaching the best fishing spots. The record for the largest halibut caught at our resort, which for a while was the standing world record, is 194 kg. In addition to the large size of halibuts caught nearby, our guests enjoy catching other Arctic species such as cod, haddock, saithe, redfish and wolf fish.

We offer several types of accomodation such as 8 fully furnished apartments, located directly next to our fishing camp with boat rentals, 4 houses and the possibility of renting your own lighthouse. The resort rents out Arvor fishing boats, 21,5 ft and 23 ft (the deluxe edition). In adition we can offer a larger fishing boat type Korsö 1100 which includes a skipper and a guide.

In our kitchen we make food upon order from our guests, serving food and drinks from our Arctic menu. We offer pick-up and transfer service to and from the airport, and have a full selection of fishing equipment and safety suits for sale and rental.
