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.

Gal­lery – Kabel­våg, Svol­vær & Lauk­vik

Click on thumb­nail to open an enlar­ged ver­si­on of the spe­ci­fic pho­to.

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.

By the way, my new book is in print and it can now be orde­red 🙂 it is a pho­to book with the title “Nor­we­gens ark­ti­scher Nor­den (3): Die Bären­in­sel und Jan May­en”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
