On this excursion, experienced skippers first take us to an idyllic lagoon with white-sand beaches surrounded by small islands and skerries that protect it from the often-turbulent open ocean. There is a very good chance you will see sea eagles, Europe’s largest bird of prey. After a short photo stop, we continue at high speed on the Vestfjord to the island fishing village of Skrova, with just under 200 inhabitants. The fishing and whaling industries in the 'old days' once swelled the island's population to several thousand. Here, we stop for a snack and learn about the village's history and its present livelihood – exporting salmon worldwide.
We then continue to the village of Skjoldvær, before heading back across the Vestfjord to Svolvær, where we are greeted at the harbor entrance by the statue of the 'Fisherman’s Wife' before re-boarding our ship.
