King crab

King crab is a well-known delicacy here in the north. One king crab meal is almost mandatory for anyone traveling through Varanger. Not only that, you can also join a crab fishing trip in a boat, with a guide and be served a delicious crab meal in the boat. If you are really looking for an experience of a lifetime you can also join in snorkeling for crab.

The story

In the 1990s, a new creature began to make its mark in
Varangerfjorden. It was the hitherto unknown Petsjenga crab, or the king crab for which it has later become best known. The crab is large and there is plenty of it in the fjord. It is tasty and invites to a good meal. By contacting Varangertunet we can arrange
crab fishing trips for you and yours with people who are used to traveling on the sea. Imagine being able to fish the crabs yourself and then cook them and eat them on board, while you feel the waves dove under the boat.
