Silversea Luxury Cruises A Leknes

Leknes

Blessed with some of the most spectacular scenery in Norway (and goodness only know that this is land blessed with rolling hills, soaring peaks, valleys, tranquil fjords and white sandy beaches, so the competition is high!), Leknes is what Norway is meant to be. Pretty red houses lay dotted on the green covered hills, and the midnight sun is rises above the horizon from 26th May to 17th July, (while in winter the sun does not rise from 9th December to 4th January).

Part of the stunning Lofoten islands, this pretty port offers much in the way of recreation, although understandably most of this is outdoor based. Take a boat ride around the archipelago, try your hand at some deep sea fishing, or simply stroll thought the city centre, perhaps rent a bicycle and discover the hinterland at your own pace. Bikes can be easily rented and note that hybrid and electric bikes are a great option for those who might be a bit out of practice with their pedal power. Gastronomes with a sweet tooth will be rewarded with one simple pleasure: a fresh-from-the-oven skillingsbolle – or big, fluffy cinnamon rolls, fit for indulging in if all the fresh air has made you hungry! Look out for the quirky coffee shops, settle down for some Norwegian kos, say takk for maten and enjoy!

Excursiones en Leknes

Flakstad,Sund and Nusfjord

Explore the local history, villages and landmarks of the Lofoten Islands during this picturesque, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Leknes, Napp Tunnel, Flakstad Bay and Church

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to the Flakstad Church. En route, pass underneath the narrow sound between Lilleeid and Napp via the approximately 1.1-mile (about 1.8-kilometre) Napp Tunnel, then proceed along Flakstad Bay to the Flakstad Church. Upon arrival, take a guided tour of this charming little, red-painted church, which dates from the 18th century.


Sund Fishery Museum, Blacksmith Collection and Demonstration

Following your tour, re-board your coach and head to Sund for a visit to its interesting fishery museum. Here, view the works and collection of a local craftsman, the blacksmith, and observe him at work, perhaps creating a cormorant, the bird that made the former blacksmith Hans Gjertsen famous in Norway. This bird is a symbol to the fishermen in this region, and therefore of great significance.


Lofoten Islands, Nusfjord Fishing Village, Open-Air Museum, Napp Tunnel, Leknes

It has been proven that the Lofoten Islands were already a centre of power at the time of the Vikings. The Lofoten Islands feature a breath-taking, approximately 118-mile (about 190 kilometres) mountain range with a sheer drop into the sea, along with rich, green valleys, and charming villages and fishing ports. Leaving the museum, re-board your coach and continue on to Nusfjord, one of the most idyllic and best-preserved fishing villages in the Lofoten Islands. Today, it operates as an open-air museum. During your guided walking tour, marvel at the architecture of the old fishermen's dwellings, which are now popular holiday homes for visitors to this beautiful region. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 219 yards (about 200 metres), at times over uneven surfaces and inclines, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, and several steps at the church and museum. Walking in the church, museum and fishing village is at the discretion of each guest. This tour is not suitable for guests with a fear of tunnels, guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear warm, comfortable clothing in layers with flat, closed-toe walking shoes, and bring sun protection and a weatherproof jacket from the ship. Videography is not permitted inside the Flakstad Church; photography without flash is permitted. The tour sequence may vary.

It has been proven that the Lofoten Islands were already a centre of power at the time of the Vikings. The Lofoten Islands feature a breath-taking, approximately 118-mile (about 190 kilometres) mountain range with a sheer drop into the sea, along with rich, green valleys, and charming villages and fishing ports.


Fishing, Birdlife, Marine Species, Island Views

He knows the best fishing spots, and the route is decided according to weather conditions. All necessary fishing equipment is provided for your enjoyment. Fish species that frequent these waters include cod, coalfish and mackerel, among others. Spectacular birdlife proliferates in the Lofoten Islands, and may be seen along the way. If you are lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of a seal or other marine species.


Although fishing is catch-and-release only, you are welcome to take photos of your catch.If the tour is fully-booked, half of the guests can fish at one time, to avoid tangling lines.

During your guided visit, explore a variety of exhibitions and reconstructions, view a video about Viking history, see the smoke rise from the fireplaces and smell the aroma of meals being cooked; a very realistic impression of what life must have been like during those harsh times.

The main building of the Lofotr Viking Museum has a length of approximately 272 feet (about 83 meters). During your guided visit, explore a variety of exhibitions and reconstructions, view a video about Viking history, see the smoke rise from the fireplaces and smell the aroma of meals being cooked; a very realistic impression of what life must have been like during those harsh times. Following your visit, board a coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier via the Buksnesfjord, and a brief photo stop at the fishing village of Mortsund.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately 2.5 miles (about four kilometres), at times over gravel surfaces and inclines, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, and several steps at the church and museum.

This tour is not suitable for guests with a fear of tunnels, guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Parents of children not used to walking/hiking for long distances should consider participation carefully, since the bus cannot pick guests up on the way. Guests are advised to wear warm, comfortable sportswear in layers with sturdy, flat, and closed-toe walking or hiking shoes, and bring sun protection and a weatherproof jacket from the ship. The tour sequence may vary. Operation of this tour is subject to weather conditions.
