FISHING SATISFACTION GUARANTEE

Sandland Brygge is proud to be able to offer very good fishing opportunities. Here you are almost guaranteed to land a big fish both in the summer and winter. Throwing out the fishing line in the midnight sun and fishing in day light throughout the night offers a fishing experience out of the ordinary. In the wintertime it is the record breaking cod and the northern lights that draws you to Lopphavet. Accomplishment, excitement, companionship and freedom are all elements that make fishing at Sandland an activity that you would like to do again. It creates a desire to come back for more, home to Sandland.

Sandland Brygge has a well stocked tackle shop on-site where you can purchase any extra fishing equipment. We provide storage on the premises if you would like to leave your fishing equipment at Sandland Brygge until your next visit.
