Part 2: Skrolsvik & Harstad

North Norway with SV Antigua, 2019: Tromsø-Lofoten-Bodø

After a night’s pas­sa­ge we rea­ched Skrol­s­vik, a love­ly litt­le place on the sou­thern end of Sen­ja. Here you can hike up the moun­ta­ins as far as you want to or can, you can take a walk to the shore and dis­co­ver for­ti­fi­ca­ti­ons from the war and you can visit the “Gam­mel­bu­tik­ken”, the his­to­ri­cal shop which is now kept as kind of a muse­um. They were so kind to open just for us – takk skal dere ha!

On we went to Har­stad, the big­gest place in this area, on Hin­nøya, Norway’s lar­gest island, which belongs to the Ves­terå­len islands. Also near Har­stad, the Ger­mans built some migh­ty for­ti­fi­ca­ti­ons and coas­tal bat­te­ries during the grim days of the second world war. Cra­zy! Unfort­u­na­te­ly, the his­to­ri­cal muse­um and medieval church were clo­sed. They would have pro­vi­ded a con­trast as inte­res­t­ing as peaceful.
