Starting from Svolvær, and passing through the island of Gimsøy, we will visit the most characteristic places, the most important villages from the historical-cultural point of view and the wonders of the Atlantic, characterised by a strong and vigorous nature, the crystalline sea, the jagged peaks, the silence of the most hidden and lost villages.

Gimsøy is the smallest island of the entire archipelago. Facing the Atlantic, Gimsøy has rough, wild nature. The mountain Hoven, with its 368 metres high, is the perfect destination to admire the midnight sun in summer. In winter Gimsøysand is considered one of the best spot to enjoy the magic of the northern lights. The tiny church is also worth a visit. Built in 1876, it can host up to 300 people.
The fishing village of Eggum lies between the Atlantic ocean and the mountains. Eggum is a magic place where the silence is the main protagonist of the never ending summer nights.
