This panoramic tour takes in the scenic landscapes of the Lofoten Islands. You’ll head west and drive through the underwater tunnel to Flakstad Island passing the little onion-domed church, believed to have come from Siberia. You’ll visit Nusfjord, one of Norway’s oldest and best preserved fishing villages. Here you’ll have time for a walk around and a visit to the village store and post office which boasts its own postmark. The fishing industry is still very much alive here and large hauls of fish are still caught in season.
Continue to the village of Vikten and to Lofoten Design, idyllically located by the sea. Perhaps browse and shop for unique objects of handmade glass and ceramics or take a stroll along the shore. Afterwards, head back to your ship in Leknes, making photo stops along the way.
