This is a great opportunity to see a local village which has survived on fishing and farming for several generations and hear about the coastal culture. This small community with 270 inhabitants has a local fish factory that is 100 years old, and the fish racks and the small fishing boats will give you an insight into how the people have lived their lives here. Midway through our tour we will go ashore on the small island; Gåsvær, a small island with a white traditional church that was founded and built by the local community.
We have been allowed access inside, and you will be able to see for yourself what a traditional church of these parts looks like. We will also enjoy a warm cup of coffee or tea on the church steps while telling you about the culture and history of the island and surrounding area. This tour is recommended for nature photographers, bird watchers and people that love to see the rural coastal landscape and we want you to keep your eyes open for all the wildlife that can be found in the area; such as white-tailed eagles, golden eagles, king eider, shags, guillemots and little auks.
We also have a big population of seals in our area and from time to time we see them pop their heads out from the water to look at us. You will be provided with an extra layer of clothing and survival suits before the tour.
If you have any additional questions, do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
