Meeting the Past, Enjoying the Present

Book tourBook tour

Crossing three islands of ever-changing but always beautiful scenery, the first stop is the Lofotr Viking Museum, a site surrounded by farmland, just as it was in the Viking Era. This living museum features a reconstruction of the biggest Viking longhouse found anywhere in the world. The weapons in the longhouse are all replicas, so you can play Viking to your heart’s content! Those of you less inclined to take up arms can admire the skill that has gone into recreating the world of over a thousand years ago, or the skills still on display by the various craftspeople. The archaeological finds from the site are housed in a separate building where you will also find the souvenir shop, a café and other displays. The return journey stops at the village of Henningsvær, a charming fishing village with stunning harbour views just a few minutes’ walk from the village centre. A converted fish landing stage houses Galleri Lofotens Hus, where you can admire some of the finest paintings from the Golden Age of North-Norwegian Art. The Caviar Factory, a gallery of high quality international contemporary art, is just off the village square, as are various other small galleries, opportunities for refreshment, and quirky little shops. This is your final stop before Svolvær.
