Meeting point is at the front of our Restaurant Holmvik Stua. An English-speaking guide will take you on a walk through Nyksund and tell more about the history of the place and life there today. Why is Nyksund so famous? What is special about our houses and why did people leave Nyksund? Who are the people living in Nyksund today? Why can we say that Holmvik Brygge is the oldest business in town today?

After our walk, we finish on the pier of Holmvik Brygge. Here we build a copy of a line-hooker room into a self-made “gamme”. Here in this authentic place is our fishing museum today.

We will try to prepare our own longline (get the small fish part on the hook faster than your friends!!! Who will win a secret price??? ) We learn about how our fishermen got their fish a hundred years ago, and how they do it today.

Do you know that there are different ways to dry a fish and not all dry fish are called “Stockfish”? Do you know how to make filet in the proper way? We will do it together!

Finally, we will also taste some of our Vesterålen TOP 5 local specialties, prepared in our own kitchen or smoked by one of our partners.
