In Lofoten at the end of King Olav's road (E10), you will find the picturesque fishing village of Å.
Å is known to be one of Norway's best preserved and most complete fishing villages. Experience everyday life at the Lofoten fisheries back to early 19th-century at The Norwegian Fishing Village Museum. The museum is open almost all year long and offers guiding for individuals and groups in Norwegian, English and Spanish. During high season (june-august) other languages might be available. During summer make sure to visit Lofoten Stockfish Museum and learn about how Stockfish became the oldest export product in Norway. Follow the cod from the ocean to the Italian dinner table.
