 Lofoten

Storvågan (Kabelvåg) was the most important and oldest fishing village in the last century, and opened its first guest house in the late 18th century. Kabelvåg forms a part of the municipality´s cultural history reserve with an interesting architectural structure. Kabelvåg have approximately 1.950 inhabitants. Around the year 1103, King Øystein had Lofoten´s first church built in Kabelvåg. Later, around 1120, he also had "rorbu" cabins built for the fishermen. A commemorative statue of him can be seen on the heights overlooking Kabelvåg town centre. Vågan Church, also known as "Lofoten Cathedral" can also be found in Kabelvåg. It was built in 1898 and can accommodate up to 1.200 people. Just outside Kabelvåg is the modern tourist centre, Nyvågar Rorbu Hotel.

Regardless of the time of year you visit - with the mystical Midnight sun, a spectacular thunderstorm or the magical Northern Lights. The polar night occurs when the night lasts for more than 24 hours. This occurs only inside the polar circles.
