Sights on the trip
Henningsvær is a vibrant picturesque community spread across a number of islands with breakwaters and dikes bringing it together. Until 1983 Henningsvær was only accessible by boat. As a result its traditional fishing village architecture has largely been preserved, and draws many tourists to the area.
This authentic fishermen village has Europe1s largest mural of approximately 2,000 m2. Ballstad is located on the southern tip of Vestvågøy in the Vestfjorden basin. The village is sheltered from the large ocean waves by several large and small islands.
Nusfjord is one of Norway’s oldest and best-preserved fishing villages. The village - referred to as a pearl in red and ochre - is beautifully situated below steep mountain peaks. As you walk around the village you will find a conserved power station, colourful wooden boat houses and a large and atmospheric fish oil factory.
Reine is one of Lofoten’s best known and most frequently photographed fishing villages. It has been a source of inspiration for many artists. The beautiful surroundings have also been adopted and used by world famous adventure centers like Epcot and Legoland.
Å is a time-honoured fishing village steeped in tradition and characterised by fisherman’s cabins and quayside warehouses. The little village is also the terminal point of the E10 road. Å is home to the Norwegian Fishing Village Museum and Lofoten Stockfish Museum, as well as a 170 year old bakery famous for their fresh cinnamon buns.
