Coming to Skarsvåg and visiting this place was such a great experience! We got to taste their excellent bacalao, and we couldn't have gotten a better greeting from Jonathan and Elisabeth when we arrived. Definitely a place to come back to.

The place is a mix of a small tourist information, a cafe, gift shop, equipment rentals (bicycles, kayaks, fishing equipment, ...) as well as guided activities. And for a fee you can see and hold a King Crabs. Situated in a quiet and idyllic villages.
