Norway self-catering fishing holidays

Fishing in Norway is all about the fjords. These impressive natural phenomena cut into the western coast of Norway, and their extremely low depth offers anglers fantastic sea fishing opportunities. Fishing enthusiasts head to the Norwegian fjords for cod beyond all else, a fish which is found in such abundance on the coasts of Norway. NOVASOL’s accommodation in Norway is ideal for anglers looking to liven up family holidays with a bit of fishing. While staying in fjordside cottages and apartments, families don’t just have great access to the water but have wonderful views, hiking opportunities and immersion in nature.

Fishing holiday homes in Sweden

NOVASOL has a fantastic range of holiday lettings in Sweden; many of which are on, or a short walk away from, the water. Whilst staying in your NOVASOL holiday home, you will find everything you need for the perfect fishing holiday, from boats available for hire, to fishing licenses and large freezers to store your catch! Choose a Swedish fishing holiday with NOVASOL and you will be able to experience days of great fishing and relaxing evenings of sitting around the grill, enjoying the idyllic scenery as well as your ‘catch of the day’!

Finland cottages

One of Europe’s last wildernesses, Finland is a sparsely populated country with a population of just 5.5 million. This means wide open spaces, big animals and vast supplies of delicious fish! Fishing is popular on the coast, but the best place to rent Finish holiday cottages is in the Lake District – Europe’s largest continuous lake area. With over 180,000 lakes, Finland has a large fresh water fishing scene with common catches including perch and pike. To catch this fish, you don’t even need a licence if you are simply angling, saving you money and time. After a fun day on the water, head back to your holiday home and get in the sauna. This form of relaxation is a national pastime in Finland which has an estimated 1.7 million saunas across the country. That’s almost 1 sauna for every 3 Fins!
