The Lofoten Islands is an archipelago above the Arctic Circle renowned for its beauty. It has a historical and traditional fishing industry, the northern lights, the midnight sun, small villages on remote islands, and gorgeous mountain peaks unlike anywhere else in the world. In our walk, we’ll wander through the town of Svolvaer – the largest on Lofoten – and see how this town has grown from a traditional fishing village into a hip and cool place to visit: it’s often called the Maui of Norway! We’ll see the traditional fishing cabins – rorbuer – and the drying racks that have been used for drying cod since the Viking Age. See you in Lofoten!

I really enjoyed the tour with Emma in Lofoten islands She is very knowledgeable and has a lovely chatty style of commentary. Where she misses a correct pronunciation or lacks information, her other half is lurking on line to fill the gaps. This is a great aspect of Emma’ tours. The dried fish industry in Lofoten is an eye opener – rack upon rack of fish heads and further on rack upon rack of headless fish bodies being prepared for export. The story of the current industry and how it evolved including information about the red cabins the fishermen stayed in, is a very human aspect of a great tradition in this scenic archipelago in Norway. Fortunately for us, the tourists, Emma got every the whiff of the fish on our behalf !
