One of these fishermen is Geir Helland who, for more than 25 years, has been spending his days catching some of the best Arctic cod there is. So, when looking into retirement, it was hardly a surprise that he wanted to pass on his passion for boats and the sea to fishing tourists. “In the beginning it was typically the boys on holidays, but we now see the boys returning with their whole families,” says Helland, owner of Lofotbrygga.
Lofotbrygga is located in the traditional fishing village of Brettesnes and offers charming fisherman’s cabins and flats as well as full boat rental with fishing equipment. Together with his wife Bodil, Helland has been running the place for 11 years and aims to offer guests that little extra touch.
