Kabelvåg, Svolvær & Laukvik

We spend the morning in Kabelvåg, the former “capital” of Lofoten, a powerful place for centuries until it lost its importance in recent history. But it is still a lovely place with an interesting saltwater aquarium and an equally interesting history museum. The richness and the power of the merchants next to the poverty of the fishermen. A strong contrast.

The hike to Svolvær was both lovely (regarding scenery) and wet (regarding terrain). Those who stayed on board of SV Antigua for the short passage to Svolvær had some more time to explore the modern-day capital of Lofoten before we visited the northern light centre in Laukvik in the evening.
