We start from Reine and drive through spectacular Lofoten scenery towards the charming village of Nusfjord, one of the oldest and best-preserved fishing settlements in Norway, with long local traditions. In fact, Nusfjord was once the most important fishing village in all of Lofoten.
The village´s history stretches back to the 19th century, and the storybook wooden architecture here was designated as one of three special areas in Norway marked for the preservation of unique environments. We will visit many of the historic buildings and enjoy the tasty local fish soup served for lunch.
On the way back to Å, we stop and explore an enchanting Lofoten beach at Flakstad, before we reach the remote village of Å, at the end of E10: King Olav´s Road. Here you will find the picturesque Norwegian Fishing Village Museum, and learn about everyday life in the Lofoten fisheries over the past 250 years.
There will be time after the museum to explore on your own before we head back to Reine and the ship.
