The charming fishing village Kalvåg
Fascinating Rock Carvings at Vingen
We offer you a great trip by boat from Florø to Kalvåg. The fi shing community of Kalvåg is situated far out to sea, with the cape of Stadt as its neighbour in the north and the open North Sea to the west. Here you can explore one of the best preserved fi shing villages in Western Norway. Around the bay sea houses are clustered together, full of atmosphere. You can visit the old herring salting houses, go for a walk along the open air art exhibition or just enjoy the atmosphere.
The Liset Salting House formerly housed a copper smiths, a carpenter’s shop, salt herring and cod liver oil production and a base for the fi shery. Today the tools and equipment lie about, creating an authentic impression that the workers are absent for a fi ve minute break in the early post-war years. Visit the local galleries, and have a look at the art and crafts of Kalvåg. Kalvåg is also famous for its excellent seafood, and there is no better place to enjoy it than Knutholmen Restaurant, where we stop for lunch. Set right by the sea, the architecture, decor and cuisine of this village gathering point all proudly refl ect the vibrant coastal heritage of Kalvåg.
On our journey back to Florø we could make a detour to the ancient rock carvings of Vingen if desired. A guide will be there to explain the over 3000 year old carvings.
