About

An audiovisual walk where the actress Marit Adeleide Andreassen takes you back in time to the history of the fishing village.

Join us on an exciting tour where we will take you back to the life in Skrova in the old days and up until today.

With this audiovisual guide you will join a tour where you will learn more about what happened to “Martin with the hook”, why the inhabitants of Skrova killed the bailiff and his entourage, the importance of Lofoten fishing and the controversial whaling. You will hear more about the ups and downs of the Ellingsen trading house over 160 years, the “Millionaire bench” and the life of the women in Skrova. Skrova’s story is filled with sorrows and joys, fights and dancing – and exotic visitors like the woman who walked on glass.

Skrova is a coastal community that has had to adapt to new circumstances several times – and has done it well. Here you will have a taste of the story.

Please download the app before you arrive. The walk takes about 1 hour. Enjoy!
