This was so awesome! We were taken out in an authentic fishing boat on a nearly private tour (just us and one other couple) and fished a few different spots out on the fjord while discussing some of the history as well as the various fish, fishing techniques and cooking styles. We only caught two small cod variations so that was a bit underwhelming but can’t make the fish bite if they don’t want to and it was plenty for the Nordic Bergen Fish Soup the owner cooked for us upon returning which was incredible! We also pulled up the crab traps and got a few of those little guys for the stock. We had pure apple cider which was also amazing and were made waffles for dessert which we got to try the infamous brown cheese on well. The owner told us stories about the history of the place while we ate. It was honestly such an amazing hometown experience and was exactly what we were seeking to experience authentic Norway.
