Visit Henningsvær and Nusfjord by bus on a day trip. In Nusfjord, a 3-hour fishing trip awaits you. Lunch included. Daily departures from Svolvær.

Notice: full transport from and back to Svolvær is included with our Arctic Route hop-on/hop-off bus.

From Svolvær town to Henningsvær village

Start your sightseeing day from Svolvær. Your first stop is Henningsvær, where you can explore (self-guided) the cosy fishing village. Hop in one of many handcraft shops, such as candle makers, glass blowing, knitting textiles, local food stores, and so much more. After your visit, hop back on the bus, driving on Lofotens National Scenic Route to Nusfjord, a UNESCO candidate-listed village, hidden away from the main road.

An Arctic taste in Nusfjord village

Upon your arrival, head to the Oriana restaurant in the center of the small village. A traditional salmon pizza, baked in a wood oven, awaits you. Experience the Arctic taste. After your lunch, your guide will pick you up for a 3-hour fishing trip.

Feel like a fisherman

Join our captain, who was once a fisherman himself, on our traditional fishing boat, Elltor, for a true fisherman‚Äôs adventure on Norwegian waters. The captain will gladly share his expertise and fascinating stories of the village‚Äôs fishing heritage. If you catch a fish, it can be fillet for you after the trip, so you can bring it home to prepare for dinner. Oh, and keep your eyes open for eagles passing by.

Explore the galleries and the rorbua

After the tour, you have around 1 hour to explore Nusfjord a bit more: visit the art gallery, the quay, the local bar and the rorbua. A tip: end your visit to Nusfjord with a warm waffle with marmalade and traditional Norwegian ‘brown cheese’ in the Landhandleriet. The old general store dates back to 1907 and has kept its original interior, taking you back in time the moment you enter.
