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.
