Join a guided walk to the fishing village of Svinøya in Svolvær. Svolvær has been a thriving fishing community since 1828. Exploring the oldest part in the quarters of Svinøya, you will learn about its early history. The fisheries are still of primary importance to the region, and the Lofoten cod fishery has always formed the basis of existence for the people here. In amongst the rorbuer (fishermen’s huts) and iconic stockfish racks you can immerse yourself in the atmosphere, viewing the sea on one side and the spectacular mountain range of Lofoten on the other. Enjoy a visit to the painter Gunnar Bergs’ gallery and taste locally produced stockfish. You will also see a fish restaurant and a fish processing plant.
