The Lofoten Islandsare known for excellent fishing, extreme nature, and small fishing villages. During the guided trip from Svolvær to Stamsund, see sheltered bays, white-sand beaches, and green farmland. The scenery, the special light, and the fishing have attracted artists from both Norway and abroad for centuries. We stop in Henningsvær, a charming fishing village with 500 inhabitants. In the 18th century, it was the most important fishing village in Lofoten. Fishing is still important here today, but the beautiful harbor is also full of charming local arts and crafts shops.
Henningsvær became protected in 2022 and is one of Norway’s most historically important fishing villages.
In Henningsvær, we will visit Galleri Lofoten, which exhibits one of Norway’s largest collections of paintings from Northern Norway dating back to the turn of the last century, a period by many called the golden age of Northern Norwegian painting.
After the visit in Henningsvær, the bus takes you to Stamsund, where the ship awaits.
