Experienced skippers take us first to an idyllic lagoon with white sandy beaches that are surrounded by small islands and skerries protecting it from the often-turbulent open ocean. There is a very good chance you will see sea eagles, Europe’s largest bird of prey. After making a short photo stop, we continue at high speed on the Vestfjord to the island fishing village of Skrova, with just under 200 inhabitants. Fishing and whaling in the `old days´ once swelled the island´s population to several thousand. Here, we stop for a snack and learn about the village´s history and its present livelihood exporting salmon around the world.
We then continue to the village of Skjoldvær, before heading back across the Vestfjord to Svolvær where we are greeted at the harbour entrance by the statue of the `Fisherman’s Wife´ before re-boarding our waiting ship.
