Welcome to Norway
Welcome to the Lofoten archipelago. Your journey starts in Svolvær, a small village of fewer than 5000 and the biggest town for miles.
After checking in to your accommodation for the night, a typical fisherman’s cabin, have a stroll around town.
Spend the rest of your day exploring Svolvær, the regional centre. The name Svolvær was likely derived from the Old Norse word “svair”, which means ‘chill’! Check out if it still is a chill town today.
Enjoy the town with its galleries, nice restaurants and evidence of being a fishing village with cod hung up on the racks to dry.
Svinøya rorbuer – a renovated fisherman’s cabin with over 200 years history.
