Your trip starts with city sightseeing in Harstad before visiting Trondenes Church, Trondenes Historical Centre and the Medieval Farm. Trondenes was an important political centre at the end of the Viking Age. Did you know the Trondenes Church is the world’s northernmost medieval stone church? It dates back to the 13th century and is very well preserved.
The Medieval Farm is a living museum where actors and animals show what life was like on the farm 800 years ago. Watch the housewife, the land owner, the farmhand and the maid at work, the nature of which changes according to the seasons.
The road continues along Vesterålen’s mountains and fjords with several photo stops along the way before you reach Sortland where you will see the Havila Voyages ship pass under the almost one kilometre long Sortlandbrua (the Sortland Bridge) before reboarding the ship in Sortland Harbour.
