King Crab Experience

If you've seen "The Deadliest Catch" you've watched the crabbing crews bringing their catch to shore and placing their crabs into special tanks for weighing. During this tour, you will see what happens next for the infamous king crab.

Originally native to Russia, these crabs have migrated across the northern Norwegian coastline over the past century and can measure up to 2 meters between the claws (legs)!

The adventure begins as you board the minibus directly at the pier in Honningsvag for a comfortable, scenic ride to Sarnes. Here you will be greeted by the camp hosts who will escort you down to the pier to see live crab crawling around in the tanks. Hold up a crab and smile for your new profile picture as you learn all about this fascinating crustacean.

Learn techniques for preparation as well as facts about the king crab. You will next enter the small restaurant and sit down to be rewarded with a meal of the king crab, sink your teeth into the delicious crab meat along with a side of bread, lemon and mayonnaise. Mineral water is included with your meal and you will have the option to purchase beer or wine.

Following the meal you will relax with coffee, tea, and biscuits and inhale the salty air as you watch the boats coming and going from the pier before your picturesque return trip back to port.
