Starting out from Reine, you will have a photo op at Reinehalsen, the classic Lofoten viewpoint. Your first main stop is in Å, an authentic Lofoten fishing village. Enjoy a stroll in the village center and admire the traditional local "rorbu" houses where the fishermen used to live. And don’t miss the delicious cinnamon swirls from the local cafe. Your next main stop is in Vikten, by the unique turf-roofed building, the glassblower’s workshop. Here, he transforms molten glass into art. A ceramics workshop and café is just across the road. You will then leave Vikten for Lofotr Viking Museum, where you travel back in time more than 1,000 years to enjoy a typical Viking meal for lunch. You will also have time to experience the museum.

Finally, you arrive in Henningsvær, a charming village surrounded by the sea at the end of a wild and beautiful coastal road. In Lofoten Gallery, admire the largest collection of paintings from the Golden Age of Northern Norwegian art, among other works. You will also have time to explore the village with stunning harbor views, just a few minutes’ walk from the village center. Then you rejoin your ship in Svolvær.
