Beautiful Reinefjord

The Reinefjord is an arm of the large Vestfjord. Despite being only 3 kilometres long, it is one of the most picturesque places in Lofoten. It expands into not less than 4 arms: the Vorrfjord, the Kjerkfjord, the Bunesfjord, and the Forsfjord. Since all of them are surrounded with tall, jagged peaks, the scenery can rightly be described as dramatic. As there are no road connections in these fjords, boat is the only transportation available to the few people still living in the once lively fisherman’s settlements.

Several small islands marks the entrance of the Reinefjord. One of them is Sakrisøy, known for its bright yellow fishing huts and storehouses. At the beginning and end of the tour, you will cross the Reinevågen bay, where you get a good view of the cosy, red fisherman’s huts at Reine Rorbuer.
