This tour’s all about getting to grips with the history of Norway’s coast, along with a healthy dose of photo-worthy scenery. It starts with a bus ride to Festvag, where you’ll board a ferry across to Misten. From here, it’s a quick drive to the Kjerringoy Trading Post. This place is a small store that was once used for trading local produce, that’s now a cultural history museum. It’s set against a backdrop of tree-covered hills and craggy mountain peaks. A selection of 19th-century buildings are dotted around the village – there are only 15 in total – and many of them are still filled with their original contents. On arrival, you’ll be shown a film that explains what life was like on Kjerringoy for the merchants and fishermen who lived here hundreds of years ago. Next up, there’s a tour around the Trading Post Museum and a time-stamped family house with Italian-style busts, embroidered curtains and cabinets filled with Victorian remedies. You’ll then have some time to walk around and explore the preserved buildings and pay a visit to the local shop. It’s perched on the edge of a beach, and you can buy traditional boiled sweets for the journey back to the port.
