The giant crab with its long legs can grow two metres in size from pincer to pincer. The king crab is huge and magical with its dark red, spiky shell, under which hides sweet and juicy white crab meat. You can help pull the giant up from the depths and taste this Arctic delicacy. 

We set off in our RIB from the king crab town of Kirkenes and head out to the fjord and the sea. There we will pull up the pots that have been on the seabed to catch the king crab. Get involved and help pull up the king crab. 

After the catch has been landed, you will be taken by RIB to a rustic restaurant by the fjord where the king crab is served in the classic Norwegian way. Clean, fresh and with a divine taste from the depths of the sea. Portion sizes are on the generous side, so no one should leave the table hungry.
