 Svolvær  
Svolvær, Svolvaer Svolvær is the "capital" of Lofoten, and an important junction for the entire region. The town is also the largest gateway to Lofoten for the steadily increasing tourist traffic.

Lofoten´s cod fishing season is between January and April. The original method was lines pulled in by hand from open boats, but today´s modern fishing fleet employs more efficient fishing gear. "The Svolvær Goat" (Svolværgeita), is the town´s most characteristic feature, and it represents a challenge to climbers.
