Lofoten is rich in history with evidence of human settlements over 10,000 years ago. Some mountains in the islands date back to the mesozoic era (that's why some places look like Jurassic Park!). Although in the arctic, the warm Gulf Stream provides mild temperatures, and the Northeast Arctic cod has come to spawn in Lofoten for thousands of years. The perfect weather conditions and arrival of the cod allowed for stockfish (hang dried cod) to been exported from Lofoten for over 1,000 years.

Learn more about the history and culture of Lofoten on the cruise over to the island. Enjoy a 45 minute guided walking tour of Skrova followed by 1 hour and 15 minutes of free time to enjoy food at a local cafe or to wander around the island.
