About Vestvagoy

Forming part of the Lofoten archipelago, Vestvågøy is both an island and a municipality in Norway’s Nordland county. It is highly photogenic, with steeply carved mountains that descend to the azure waters of the Norwegian Sea. Not only is Vestvågøy the most populous region in the archipelago, but it’s also home to a reconstructed Viking chieftain’s residence dating back to the Iron Age.

Things to do in Vestvagoy

Serving as the administrative centre of Vestvågøy is the town of Leknes, which lies in the geographical heart of the Lofoten Islands. Stretch your legs during a stroll around the bustling harbour and visit the Fygle Museum, which comprises a 19th-century school and a fisherman’s cabin where objects from Vestvågøy’s past are exhibited.

One of Vestvågøy’s most visited attractions is the Lofotr Viking Museum, which centres around a reconstructed chieftain’s house excavated nearby. In addition to showcasing archaeological finds, the museum details the story of Borg and offers plenty of hands-on activities, like learning to row a Viking ship, shooting with a bow and arrow and participating in a traditional Viking feast.

On the west coast of Vestvågøy is Haukland Beach, which is one of the most popular swimming beaches in the Lofoten Islands. Backed by angular mountains, its brilliant turquoise waters are Caribbean-like, although they don’t get above 15 degrees Celsius! If you’re not game for a swim, the beach is also highly photogenic, particularly when blanketed in snow during the winter months.

Getting around Vestvagoy

Vestvågøy is around an hour’s drive from Svolvær, from where ferries connect to Skutvik on Norway’s mainland. Bodø Airport is around 3.5 hours’ drive from Skutvik and has regular flights to destinations across Norway. Buses travel throughout the Lofoten Islands while having your own vehicle gives you greater freedom to explore.
