Embark on an exhilarating king crab adventure with Icecube of Aurora! Join us for a 2,5 hour tour and get up close with the magnificent red king crab. Book now!

Don't miss the opportunity to go on a fantastic king crab tour! The excursion takes you to the crab fields located in Alta Fjord. Using a specialized box-shaped trap referred to as a "pot," the vibrant red king crab is captured. This pot is subsequently lifted from the sea onto the boat.

You have the opportunity to watch the experienced captain in action, as this is a task they have mastered through countless repetitions. Once the majestic king crab is safely on deck, you can gently hold it and capture memorable photographs alongside it.
