This is an optional land excursion which you can add to your Hurtigruten cruise booked through Fjord Travel Norway. The land excursion will appear during the cruise booking process, with prices and details.

The experienced skippers take you to a lagoon with white sandy beaches surrounded by small islands and skerries that protect it from the mighty ocean outside. There is a good chance you will get a good view of sea eagles, Europe’s largest bird of prey. After a short photo stop, you continue to the fishing village of Skrova where you stop for a snack and to learn about the village, known for exporting salmon all over the world. The statue of the “Fisherman’s Wife” will greet you when you return to the harbour in Svolvaer to rejoin the ship.
