Henningsvær is a little fishing village about half an hours car drive from Svolvær. A lot of tourists visit this little village to watch the typical fishing village architecture.

A trip to Lofoten islands – Svolvær

As a part of our summer holiday we spent a few days in the Lofoten islands. We rented a boat house in Svolvær (Svinøya). Svolvær is a beautiful town situated just below the famous rock formation “Svolværgeita” (the Svolvær goat). Svolvær is a popular place to visit for tourists from all over the world and a lot of them arrive with a Norwegian cruise ship called “Hurtigruta”. “Hurtigruta travels the Norwegian coastline from Bergen and all the way up to Tromsø.

We visited a few more places too, which I will write about in later posts. Meanwhile please enjoy the photos from Svolvær.
