After starting in Stamsund, our first stop is a photo stop at Torvdalshalsen. We then continue to Kabelvåg, the oldest fishing village in the Lofoten Islands and formerly the largest. It was here that Lofoten’s commercial fisheries started more than 1,000 years ago. In Kabelvåg, we visit Gallery Espolin, with the largest collection of works made by beloved artist Kaare Espolin Johnson, known for his depictions of the sea, Lofoten and the hard lives of fishermen.
Close to the gallery is Lofoten Museum where you can learn about the history of the local fishermen. Here you experience an authentic 19th-century setting, with the former village owner`s residence, fishermen`s cabins, a general store, boathouses with traditional wooden boats and a garden. Our last stop is Vågan Church in Kabelvåg, also known as Lofoten Cathedral. The church was built in 1898 in the Gothic Revival style and is one of Norway´s largest with close to 1,200 seats.
