Private Fishing Charters in Norway - 4-6 hour trip

Does anyone know the best way to find these or if they even exist? My boyfriend and I do these charters out of Miami all the time but I can't seem to find anything with a private boat and captain anywhere in Norway. Looking for a 4-6 hour trip.

What part of Norway? Once you get there you will have no problem finding a fishing charter to take you out. Go to the tourist office and they can set you up. Fishing is practically the national sport!
Let me know the part of Norway you are going to and I may be able to make a specific recommendation...

RE: Fishing is practically the national sport!

Not even close. Try skiing. Skiing as in cross country skiing. Ask a Norwegian about skiing and they will think of Nordic skiing. Downhill (lift assisted) skiing is Alpine skiing.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-country_skiing

In modern Norwegian, a variety of terms refer to cross-country skiing,
including:

gå på ski (literally "walk on skis")—a general term for self-propelled
skiing

turgåing på ski (literally "hiking on skis")—refers to ski touring as
recreation

langrenn (literally "long competition")—refers to cross-country ski
racing

In contrast, alpine skiing is referred to as stå på ski (literally
"stand on skis").

Cross Country Skiing: The national sport of Norway

Cross-country skiing (or XC skiing) is a form of ski touring in which
participants propel themselves across snow-covered terrain using skis
and poles which is popular in many places with large snowfields. This
is very popular in Norway and some skiers stay out for extended
periods using tents and equipment similar to bushwalkers/hikers,
whereas others take relatively short trips from ski resorts on
maintained trails.
