Stokmarknes & Whalewatching – 22nd May, 2017

We are passing Stokmarknes on the way north and we make a little stop there. This is where the famous Hurtigruten was invented, the coastal steamer line that connected north Norway to the rest of the country and thus to the world. They have dedicated a museum to the Hurtigruten in Stokmarknes. And if you come with a ship, then you are welcomed by a whole Hurtigruten ship on the shore!

They are currently doing a lot of work on the museum, but it is already definitely well worth a visit.

And so is the continental shelf edge off the outer coast. That area is famous for whales, and we manage indeed to find a group of pilot whales after a while.
