Fishing in the Lyngen Fjord
Making stockfish is an old tradition in a sleepy fishing village like Koppangen.
Stockfish are unsalted, dried by cold air and wind on wooden racks on the foreshore, called “hjell” in Norwegian.
The stockfish in Koppangen are especially good, since the wind comes in from the sea bringing sea salt spicing up the fish.
Drying of food is the world´s oldest way of preserving food.
Ask Alf for a taste, you won´t regret it.
The weather on the Lyngen Fjord can change within minutes.
It is therefor a big advantage that you have knowledge on how to navigate and use a GPS in forehand.
And remember to bring warm clothes, even during summertime.
