Our hosts and fishing guides
Filip and Martin are our happy hosts and fishing guides. They “fix the fish”, so to speak. Both Filip and Martin grew up with one foot in the sea. Filip loves competitive fishing and has traveled all over the Nordics at competitions. Martin has been an angler since he was little, both sea fishing and inland fishing. Filip and Martin are friendly and helpful, and you will feel safe and taken care of – yes, even with a smile on your face.
Gjesvær is a fishing village close to North Cape in Finnmark, Norway. We are at 71* North! And we love to say that we live in Funmark. Welcome to experiencing wildlife and our wild life in the Arctic wilderness.
In the Summer, the sun never goes down. Living in the radiance of the midnight sun is an experience in itself. And in the winter, the sun never comes up, but then we have the Northern Lights to keep us alive and kicking.
The fishery in Gjesvær is among the richest in the world. The ocean offers salmon, cod, coalfish, wolffish, haddock and halibut! There are also whales and also a lot of seal.
Gjesvær also has a lot of nice trails to walk, and up the mountains you'll find plenty of good fishing lakes with big trout!
“Gjesværstappan” is an iconic mountain and a breeding ground for around 3 million sea birds. It is located only 10 minutes away from Gjesvær by boat. The main attractions here are the puffins. There are around 400 000 couples and younger birds. There are also a lot of eagles, gannets, auks, common murres, cormorants and teal.
In the summer, raindeers walk in our streets.
Gjesvær is the only place in Finnmark that is known from the viking era, and is mentioned in Snorre Sturlasson's Heimskringla from 1225 as Geirsver.
Bring your widest smiles, as you'll experience beautiful nature, great fishing, bird safaris and mountain tracks at its best! Well, and let’s not forget the local people. We have heard that we are also quite a tourist attraction!
Deep sea fishing is a sport for everyone. The adrenaline can actually be compared to doing extreme sports. At the same time, there is such peace and joy of nature surrounding it all.
We have four apartments. We can accommodate 24 people at a time.
All apartments have 3 bedrooms with 2 single beds in each. Each apartment can accommodate 6 people. Or 7, if one wants to stay on the couch in the living room.
The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking.
The apartments have a simple standard and they are clean and nice.
We clean the apartment after your stay.
We have gutting room and freezer room.
We have fishing equipment for sale and rent. As well as some equipment that you can borrow.
You can rent fishing rods from us, as well as buy some fishing equipment.
We have some warm life suits, as shown in the pictures.
Our boats are on our own pier.
It is 200 meters to the nearest grocery store. Opening hours: MATKROKEN GJESVÆR (coop.no)
Your own boat
With us, you can have your own boat so that you can go out fishing yourself. Such a freedom! Our boats can accommodate 4-8 anglers. It is only 10-15 minute boat ride out to the first deep sea fishing spot. The first day we take you out fishing, so you know where and how it is best to fish for which fish. The first guided tour (and the tour's first thousand tips) is for free!
We can shop at the local grocery store for you in advance if you wish, or if you arrive after its opening hours. We wash the fisherman's cabin after you. It's a wonderful feeling to just leave the mess and move on.

- Boat trip (one boat trip is for free when staying with us)

If you have children who cannot swim yet, we recommend booking the 2nd floor. It is important that you bring a life jacket for your children if they cannot swim.
We bought this place last year and we are working on the upgrade.
Our guests are already enjoying themselves with us. And we hope for many more regulars who think of us as their home for their vacations. If it is the case that "Home is where your heart is", then we hope to have a good chance.
