Volda Floating Home

Looking for a truly unique angling experience? Volda Floating Home gives you the rare opportunity to call one of Norway’s stunning fjords your home! Located in Tromso, Volda is a floating home that was rebuilt from a ferry – she now functions as an incredible living (and fishing!) experience for anglers of all ages and skill levels. Come aboard and get ready for an adventure that’ll give you plenty to write home about!

Captain Espen Kaspersen (you can call him Casper!) turned his passion for angling into a career after initially renting out his home – his guests were curious about his fisherman’s lifestyle, so he decided to open the doors of Volda and share his experience. He’s been fishing these waters since he was 14 years old, and has plenty of knowledge to share. Get ready to hook Halibut, Pollock, Cod, and plenty more!

Your captain specializes in multi-day trips that allow guests to explore the fjord’s fishing grounds, relax in a stunning location, and hook plenty of world-famous species! He combines his incredible floating home with a top-of-the-line 32’ Selfa Speed 33 boat, decked out with top-notch navigational and safety gear. Whether you’re taking in the local sights from Volda, or hooking huge Halibut from this impressive vessel, you’ll be in for an incredible experience.

Capt. Casper’s vessel can accommodate up to 6 guests, and there’s room on Volda for up to 14 guests. Your floating home is built to offer some seriously luxury – you’ll find one big sleeping cabin on the upper deck, 3 on the main deck and 3 on the lower deck, as well as 3 full bathrooms, a private lounging area, a laundry room, and a huge living room and kitchen area.

All you need to bring with you are your favourite rods and reels – your captain will provide the rest. A delicious 3 course meal is available on board Volda each day at an additional cost, or you can explore the fjord’s dining options. Volda Floating Home can’t wait to welcome you on board your new home away from home!

About the Captain

Espen Kaspersen (Casper) and Rikke Bjerke
Tromsø, Norway
"We started with renting out our home, and saw that our guests were very curious about Casper's fisherman lifestyle. Working as a fisherman for over 20 years has given him an incredible wealth of experience when it comes to where and what to fish, and since we already have a fishing boat...why not include our guests in his world and give them a real taste of what fishing is like in Northern Norway?" Capt. Casper has been fishing since he was 14 years old, and comes from a family of fishermen that reaches a whopping 400-500 years back. He loves the combination of freedom and responsibility that running Volda Floating Home gives him – it's the perfect balance. No day is the same, either!
