The main stop is Kabelvåg, the oldest fishing village in Lofoten and previously also the largest. This is where the commercial part of Lofoten fishing started more than 1,000 years ago. 

You can visit Galleri Espolin or the Lofoten Museum. The museum includes one of the best preserved landowner farms in Lofoten and provides an insight into the contrast between the fishermen's harsh living conditions and the luxurious lifestyle of the owners of the fisheries. In addition to the stately main building from 1815 there are also exhibitions on Lofoten's fishing history  with authentic fishermen's cabins and boathouses featuring the famous Nordland boats.

In Galleri Espolin, you can admire a large collection of Kaare Espolin Johnson's art , know for portraying the sea, the magnificent landscape and the fishermen's hard lives and life in Lofoten. 

Our last stop is Lofoten Cathedral. It is the largest wooden building and the largest church in northern Norway. With its special yellow colour, it towers over the landscape.
