Starting in Stamsund, this excursion takes you on a tour through several of Lofoten’s fishing villages and towns. Our first stop is Torvdalshalsen, a rest stop with a gorgeous view across the fjord. We’ll continue on to Kabelvåg, where the commercial fishing industry began in Lofoten more than 1,000 years ago.

Here, we’ll visit Galleri Espolin, which has the largest collection of the work of beloved artist Kaare Espolin Johnson. Close to the gallery lies the Lofoten Museum, where you can learn about local fishing history. In the medieval town of Vågar, you’ll find the main building from 1815, along with authentic fishermen’s cabins and houseboats featuring Nordland boats.

Our last stop is in Kabelvåg, where we’ll visit Vågan Church, also known as the Lofoten Cathedral. The church was built in 1898 in the Gothic Revival style and is one of Norway’s largest churches.
