Hi Pete,

I rang two guys from the club who went to Norway about 4/5 years ago. I couldn't get any specific details from them only general details.
They book the first year through a company called DINTUR? which specialises in Norway. They said that it was good - but expensive - approx £1300 for one week, They also said that that they provided aluminium boats - which were extremely cold - and after several complaints - they were replaced with fibreglass fishinf boats which were much better.

The following year they decided to book Jokek fjord in the far north via the internet - as follows_
Flights - from Manchester to Oslo - than change to Alta in Norway They also booked car-hire (2 cars) to get from the airport to the destination.

Accomodation - the place they booked has changed hands, and is no longer renting out cabins. But I was told that they did google searches on "norway fishing lodges with boats" to come up with various options.
They reckon it cost £800 each doing it this way - a saving of £500 per person. But they said that prices have obviously gone up since then.
Cheers, Steve

Hi Petep
I went to Norway with a company called Anglers World. We went to Skerjvoy (3 of us) and it cost us for the weeka lot less than that (£1300) with an Arvor 215AS boat.
Funnilly enough we are also going in 2014. If you need more details or any thing you need to know PM me.
Dids cheers

Just had a reply of Dids who used to be in the club - it reads:-

Hi Pete,

Use to be a club member but due to work commitment left.
We went with Anglers World in September 2012 because of only being 3 it was a bit above brochure price (as the cost of holiday is based for 4 people). For us it was £1068 each.

That price included flight Manchester/Oslo & Oslo/Tromso return, the transfer by coach from Tromso to Skjervoy (6 hours), the cabin and the Arvor 215 AS boat. The cabin is great when weather turn bad and it does !
Fishing was good, lots of fishes but nothing huge best Cod 23lb, lots of coalfish, haddock, cod and 1 halibut big enough to snap 60lb trace on the dive with an over tight clutch.

For our first time we were happy with our result, we were spending 8/10 hours a day afloat.
You have to take into account that the cost of food is higher than in UK about £100 per person per week and our main staple diet was “catch of the day”,
cost of marine diesel about £1.10 litre and we used around 120 litres for the week.

We took too much tackle with us to cover any situation and came back with most of it. Pirks & shads works well but my preferred method was speed jigging with either bare hook or a small coalfish hooked through the nose live baiting style, most big fish fall for this method as for the halibut a cheap green pirk did the trick.
Cod likes Tequila sunrise (orange/yellow) colour, green/silver and blue/silver ok. Speed jig was Williamson 250g black/purple.
What I will add to my tackle for next time is a couple of heavier pirk 500/700g because when we found some big fish on sounder they were always at bottom and had difficulty to through the smaller fish as the lures were always taken before to reach the bottom. We found shoal of coalfish 500m in lengh and 40m deep, 100.000 smallish fish 2/6lb which we couldn't go through to catch the big predators under it but great fun on a spinning rod.
That should give you some idea of what to expect. I choose Anglers World to Dintur as Ian Peacock was too much interested (and a lot more expensive) as what we could spend rather than give us some idea of fishing centre and cost.

If your group is not big enough, 4 should be the minimum you are welcome to tag along with us but there is plenty of time to think about it.
Cheers
Dids



Dids
excellent feedback mate - didn't expect you to get back SO QUICKLY!!! - really good info there and I will keep you in mind for our trip - we're looking at the March/April 2014 and as most prospective trips there will be a hardcore of guys that will go and some will drop-off - goes without saying but thanks for that anyway and would love to tag along with u guys if we only get around 4 solid takers, we'll have to keep the correspondence going though and see how u do this year
well chuffed Dids with all of the details,

thanks again

Pete

Checkout this link about a couple of guys who did the Norway trip by road last year - really comprehensive report I'd say but long trip:-

Ok - I need to ask again if anyone is interested in this Norway trip next year probably going in the 1st or 2nd week in April 2014
If not then I'll be asking the 4 interested club members concerned for deposits (full calculation will be done based on 4 inc flights) based on 4 sharing, 5 days accommodation & 3 days / 10 hrs charter @Lauklines thru' AnglersWorldwide.

Please only reply if you are intending to book study
many thanks

Pete
