With this tour, which lasts about five hours, we want our visitors to see the most spectacular locations that these islands offer, both natural, historical, and cultural.
It will be possible for you to sit on pure white beaches facing a crystal sea, to admire imposing mountains which for billions of years have guarded, like ancient Viking warriors, magnificent cliffs where the waves of the North Sea break.
You will smell the scent of that same sea, united with the perfume of arctic flowers. At the same time, you might also visit archaeological sites which tell the story of the Viking population, and the origins of this land.
Walk amongst the old “Rorbu” (old fishermen’s houses) in the different, colourful villages of the islands.
You will also have the chance to taste the various typical products of these islands, while sitting in some characteristic local restaurants.
With this excursion, we would like to take you to discover these islands; we will not only visit some of the characteristic fishing villages which have made these islands famous, and are appreciated all over the word, but we’ll also take you to explore unspoilt nature, the most genuine and extraordinary part of this beautiful archipelago.
We will drive you through the Gimsøy island and its amazing white sandy beaches, lakes, mountains, landscapes and its historical wooden church.
Then we will continue our trip to Bøstad where we will stop at the panoramic view point.
Our tour will continue to the Vestfjord side where you will have the chance to visit Henninsvær, the Venice of the north and Kabelvåg. Both are old fishing villages where you can breath the history and atmosphere of the ancient times when the fishermen used to gather up here to partecipate to the cod fishing season. With this short tour you will have the possibility of capturing the best that these islands can offer you.
