Henningsvaer Fishing Village Lofoten Norway by Fjord Travel Norway

Henningsvær fishing village in Lofoten

In Svolvær the guides will meet you at the quay where you board the buses.

Stop at Lofoten Cathedral, the largest wooden building and the largest church in northern Norway. With its distinctive appearance and the church’s unusual yellow colour, this is a popular photo opportunity.

Continue to Henningsvær, which is located beyond some small islands. The houses are close together, with just enough space to fit in a football pitch! Henningsvær is one of the oldest fishing villages in Norway and is now a port for fishermen and adventure-seekers in Lofoten. You can visit Galleri Lofoten and see Norway’s largest art collection of northern Norwegian paintings from the turn of the last century. If you are interested in modern art, you can also pay a visit to the art gallery, Kaviar Factory.

Then, drive on through the bright summer evening and the green agricultural lands to Stamsund where you reboard the Havila Voyages ship.

What our customers say:

  • We just recently completed the Tromso, Northern Lights & Arctic Coast tour. I am writing to say what an amazing tour we had. Everything ran smoothly without an issue, the accommodation was fantastic and the tours were brilliant. We cannot fault the package at all. I would also like to thank Franziska and Lene, they both were fantastic in answering all my questions promptly, whilst booking the tour. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable holiday!

  • I wanted to thank everybody. We had a wonderful trip. Everything went well and fortunately we had the chance to see the lights while on the cruise. All my friends in Turkey would like to go on a similar trip. So I will be in touch with you. Thanks again and best wishes to all of you.

  • On behalf of the group I would like to thank you and your colleagues for organizing our wonderful tour of Norway. Everything went very well including the weather, which was spectacular. We enjoyed all the hotels, the central locations you chose and the amenities, especially the lavish breakfasts. Three extra days in Oslo allowed us to tour the city at our leisure and to enjoy more of the important sights including the newly opened National Museum. The Norway in a Nutshell tour was amazing and made much easier by using your recommended porterage service between hotels in Oslo and Bergen. Both the train journeys and the boat trip were spectacular, and combined with a night in the beautiful Kviknes Hotel made for an unforgettable two days. We were very impressed by the Hurtigruten cruise, particularly the way they combined a working ship with a cruise ship, the comfortable accommodations, the food and service. It was fascinating to visit all the various ports, islands and fjords and the two included tours were excellent and informative. In the end we were glad to have the extra night in Kirkenes, to visit their lovely museum and take a trip to the Russian border. It was a good way to end the tour. Again, thank for staying with us through 2 years of pandemic postponements and changes. We certainly will recommend Fjord Travel in the future.
