We travel in RIB (rigid inflatable boats) from Stokmarknes across dramatic Raftsundet to the narrow Trollfjord. Here we go ashore to hear the story of the battle of Trollfjord that took place near here in 1890 between competing fishermen.

A snack is served before we continue by boat between small islets and skerries to the island of Skrova, known for its export of salmon all over the world.  Along the way, we also stop to look for sea eagles before returning to Svolvær.
