This tour starts at the pier in Henningsvær. Formerly one of the most important fishing villages in Lofoten, it still attracts fishermen during the main fishing season from January to April each year.
Your drive to Borg takes you across three of Lofoten's main islands, passing through magnificent and ever-changing scenery - from jagged mountains to lush fields, from boulder-strewn coastlines to picturesque settlements, heath and woodland.
Lofoten is known to have been a centre of power in the time of the Vikings. Borg was the site of an ancient Viking longhouse, and its discovery by a farmer in the 1980s, while out ploughing his fields, was an archaeological sensation. A reconstruction of the 83m Longhouse is the centrepiece of the Lofotr Viking Museum. A visit to the Longhouse is like stepping more than 1,000 years back in time. Through the detailed reconstruction and exhibits, you can not only learn about this fascinating era, but also gain a sense of how the Vikings lived. After visiting the museum, you return to Henningsvær.
