Dinner at Fiskekrogen

Established in 1989, Fiskekrogen is one of the most acclaimed fish restaurants in Lofoten. It is widely known for its delicious fish soup, which guests can enjoy while marvelling at the view of Henningsvær harbour. There are off course also other fantastic dishes you can try!

Learn about Henningsvær’s history

Even though there are traces of earlier settlements, the modern history of Henningsvær dates back to the beginning of the 18th century, when fishermen started settling down in the area, lured by the rich fish reserves in the ocean around. To these days fishing is the main industry, but Henningsvær is also a vibrant small town where entrepreneurs and artists have settled. You will learn more about both the history and traditions and modern life here during the guided walk around the village.
