Henningsvaer: The Venice of the North

Nestled amidst the breathtaking beauty of the Lofoten archipelago, you’ll find Henningsvær, a charming fishing village often referred to as the “Venice of the North”. This nickname stems from its unique location – a cluster of islands interconnected by bridges, mirroring the famous Italian city.

Henningsvær’s charm is a mix of its stunning natural surroundings, the colorful wooden houses dotting the waterfront, and its vibrant fishing harbor. Fishing remains a core part of Henningsvær’s identity, and the bustling harbor, brimming with fishing boats, is a testament to that. The iconic cod drying racks scattered across the village are a unique sight, particularly during the fishing season.

Among the major attractions is the Henningsvær Lighthouse, offering panoramic views of the surrounding seascape. The KaviarFactory, an international venue for contemporary art, adds a touch of avant-garde to this traditional fishing village. For sports enthusiasts, a visit to the Henningsvær Stadium, possibly the world’s most picturesque football field, is a must.

From its scenic beauty to its rich cultural heritage, Henningsvær offers a unique blend of Norwegian authenticity and Arctic adventure. And at WonderInn, we make sure you’re perfectly positioned to experience it all.
