Cruise & Historical Tour of Skrova Island

Fishboat
Discover the history of Lofoten on this cruise and walking tour on and around Skrova Island. This particular area is rich in unique history, with human settlements dating back over 10,000 years! Lofoten is also home to Northeast Arctic cod's spawning grounds, so you'll enjoy the history of the famous stockfish (hang-dried cod), which the people have exported for over 1,000 years.

You'll start the tour with a cruise from Svolvær. Your guide will share stories and interesting facts about the region's history, geology (with stones dating back to the Mesozoic era), traditions, and way of life. Then, enjoy the beauty of Lofoten as you sail through the peaceful waters to Skrova.

Upon arrival, your guide will lead you on a walking tour of the island. Afterward, enjoy plenty of free time to explore on your own. Some suggested activities include trying local fish at a cafe or following a walking path along Skrova's shoreline.
