Northern Lights Cuisine Cruise 1

Set sail into the darkness of Vestfjorden

As we leave the harbour of Svolvær, we will set out in the direction of Full Steam near the town of Henningsvær. On the way, if the weather allows for it, we will deploy our underwater drone to explore the underwater world. Our guides will share information of what we see and keep an eye out for the Northern Lights we might spot along the way.

Visit Full Steam

About 1 hour into the tour we step on land at Full Steam at the outskirts of the historic fishing village of Henningsvær. We will visit this 200 year old cod steaming warehouse where you'll hear tales and stories of the the fishing history and culture of the region. Taste a bite of true Norwegian caviar to bring the stories alive.
