Top Image: 1314

This excursion takes you through fantastic summer landscapes to the fishing villages of Kamøyvær and Skarsvåg. Your guide will tell you all about the local culture and history. Kamøyvær has fish factories, a small fishing fleet, a lighthouse, and a picturesque harbor. After a look around the village, there is time to visit the gallery, East of the Sun. The gallery exhibits and sells art, crafts and books, all inspired by Magerøya and the changing seasons. Artist Eva Schmütterer will take care of you and make you feel welcome at her cosy gallery. The trip continues to the fishing village of Skarsvåg where we will visit Nordkapp Christmas and Winter House, and you will be welcomed into a homely atmosphere, with Jule-music and a house decorated in the Norwegian Christmas tradition. “Gløgg” (Norwegian mulled wine) will be served, along with a traditional Norwegian Christmas dessert, “lefse” (a kind of buttered pancake). Here it is possible to buy Christmas decorations and knitwear, as well as learn about the life of a fishing family in summer.
