Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your tour begins as you board your motorcoach for a scenic drive down "King Olav's Road," named for the route over which the holy remains of King Olav were carried. You'll travel past the dramatic jagged peaks of the Lofoten mountain range to Henningsvær, Lofoten's largest and most active fishing village. Situated at the bottom of Mount Vågakaillen, Henningsvær consists of a group of islets spread out at random in the azure blue waters of Vestfjord. Beautiful homes, weathered with age, a picturesque harbor with brightly painted tugboats, and the mountain jutting out behind this charming town are definitely worth capturing on film.

In Henningsvær you will also find Gallery Lofoten's House. The gallery's first floor is divided into two sections – one exhibiting watercolours by Lars Lerin and one exhibiting pictures and ceramic works by Her Majesty Queen Sonja.
Your final destination is the Magic Ice Bar & Gallery in Svolvær, where everything - exhibits, the bar, glasses, tables, and sculptures - is crafted out of crystal clear ice. Seven artists from different parts of the world have created "art below zero," which expresses the bond between man and nature. Before you enter, you'll be dressed in a warm coat and offered refreshments. As you sip your drink from a glass made of ice, you're free to examine the displays, dramatically lit and presented with sound, music and images that tell the story of the traditions and the life of the Lofoten fisherman.

You'll return to Leknes via Vestvågøy Island, which offers outstanding views of the Lofoten mountain range.
