The King of the Cape Experience

The men who owned the land on which the fishermen’s shacks stood, were also called Kings of the Cape. These men were known to be some of the most powerful men in the regions they had ownership.

We can also arrange a tour of the house with guide. 

The Sund Fisheri Museum

The Sund Fisheries Museum was originally established in 1964 by Petra and Hans Gjertsen, as their own private collection. This is a unique and live museum. It all works as an installation depicting the history of boat motors and fishing equipment. Here you will also find The Blacksmith of Sund who invites guests to his working environment with warm humour and wits, whilst creating extraordinary art. There is also a charming and unique building from th 18th century, called Stampen Kafe, where you can enjoy a drink and stockfish, baccalao or fish soup in an authentic environment. Groups are welcome. 

The Blacksmith of Sund

In the tiny fishing village of Sund in Lofoten you will find a blacksmith who makes wrought-iron cormorants all year round. Lofotens most original souvernir.The cormorant is a mythical bird in Northern Norwegian folk legend. Hans Gjertsen was the old Blacksmith who started here as a small business in the 1947.

The boat is located in Å with easy access for guests staying at Brygga restaurant or in Fisherman cabins in the area. Comfort is a key word for passengers.

Lofoten Toy Museum

Lofoten Toy Museum is located on Sakrisøy in Moskenes. The first of its kind in Norway, the museum opened its doors in 1992. Since then, the Doll's Museum in the Lofotens has become a concept in its own right, founded as it was on the true joy of collecting, and on personal initiative. Some serious, some coquettish .. the oldest date back to 1860, the newest to 1960 ... Many of them have a tale to tell ... of both sorrow and joy.

Kayaking in Lofoten

Lofotens prestine environment and deep fjords offer the perfect surroundings for paddling a kayak. Mountains that reach to the heavens reflecting on thewater, create a feeling of peace and meditation. Paddling in the midnight sun is an experience you will never forget. With Sea eagles over your head and abundant marine life, kayaking in Lofoten is a truly spectacular experience. 

Experience Fun Water Activities in the Western Part of Lofoten

Snorkling in the Lofoten Sea

The water in Lofoten is crystal clear, but with little ripples in the surface it is still difficult to see the details. Snorkeling is the solution to this difficulty. The suit you get is made for cold temperatures. You also get mask, snorkel and fins, and  experienced guides give you a briefing of how to use the equipment.

The Glasblower in Vikten

In the middle of Lofoten, between steep mountains and facing the open sea, we find the Glasblower in Vikten . Where the Norwegian sea grinds stone into beautiful sculptures, where the midnight sun colors the landscape in warm hues . In 1976 Åsvar Tangrand started with glassblowing , as the first in Northern Norway. Today the glassblowing take place in Glasshytta, a beautiful building in the middle of the magnificent scenery.

In a harmonious coexistence with Glasshytta, you will find the Pottery Tower. It’s Åse Tangrand who here juggles with clay and creates both beautiful and practical tools. The pottery Tower leads you up to the facility’s coffee shop, through exhibited pottery articles.
