The tour begins with a ferry from Mekjarvik to Kvitsøy. This 40 minutes ferry ride is quite an adventure. To be outside during crossing over to Kvitsøy is outstanding, especially during bad weather with big waves.
When arriving the islands, the guide will walk you to the "city center". Small white houses, idyllic narrow streets, quiet everywhere.
Visit the lobster museum
The main exhibition deals with the story of the lobster, fishing lobsters and trading with them. Kvitsøy has long been known as a center for lobster fishing, but local fishermen also fish for herrings, sardines and shrimp. The sea has always been of fundamental importance for the settlement on Kvitsøy. The museum follows this theme with an exhibition on the daily life of an island fisherman. The museum also displays buildings and furnishings from a traditional fisherman's home as well as an exhibition devoted to boats and motors. In addition, the museum can boast of an extensive collection of equipment used in the fishing industry.
Guided tour in the moonscape
After visit the museum, the guide will take you to another univers. A hike between the sharps cliffs, close to the waves, is terrifying with much wind. But, a must. Feel the wind, explore the waves and get saltwater in you hear. You are alive!
