Depending on the current, fishing takes place in front of or behind the Saltstraumen.
However, extreme temperatures should be expected in any season, temperatures over 30 °C in summer and below -30 °C in winter are within the range of the possible.
Particularly noteworthy is the protected location in the interior, behind the coastal mountains. Even in spring or autumn, if, for example, the storm is raging on the Lofoten, you can sometimes go for a leisurely fishing trip, and heavy waves are very rare.
