One of the world's largest seasonal fisheries takes place in Lofoten. From mid-February until the end of April, Lofoten is full of life. The arctic cod swims from the vast, nutritious areas of the Barents Sea in its millions, en route to the spawning grounds near Lofoten in order to continue the species. Professional fishermen from the entire coast of Norway participate in this event. Come out to sea and try your luck at fishing! Experience the atmosphere and the excitement at the fishing area. One thing is certain; you won't be bored with the scenery while you are waiting for the fish to bite! You might see a flock of sea eagles waiting for some fresh food. Or the steep Lofoten Mountains that plunge straight down into Vestfjord.
Go ocean rafting in Lofoten! The open sea, steep mountains, narrow straits and luscious islets. Changing light and crystal-clear water. An experience you will never forget and one that will make your hair stand on end even if you don't have any! The rubber dinghies are extremely robust and will carry you to new adventures.
We depart Svolvær heading for Henningsvær, the picturesque fishing village known for its history, galleries and museums. Passing Kabelvåg enroute we get an excellent view of the Lofot Cathedral and Vågankallen, one of the tallest mountains in the region.
Experience the magnificent Lofoten Islands by sea! The rich wildlife in the Lofoten Islands have fascinated visitors for centuries, if you are lucky, you can see both eagles and seals, and a great variation of bird life on a trip to the Trollfjord.
