Kalvåg Cruise Port

From sea to glacier

The fishing village Kalvåg is situated far out on the coastline, with Stadt as its neighbour in the north and the open North Sea to the west.

Kalvåg is the the best kept fishing village in western Norway. The village has a unique collection of old waterfront buildings. Many of the old wharf buildings have been restored and converted to provide accommodation. Around the bay the 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. Visit the local galleries, and have a look at the art and crafts of Kalvåg. In Kalvåg everything is within walking distance

Kalvåg is famous for its excellent seafood, and there is no better place to enjoy it than Knutholmen Restaurant. Set right by the sea, the architecture, decor and cuisine of this village gathering point, all proudly reflect the vibrant coastal heritage of Kalvåg.

Kalvåg is the perfect place for enjoying activities such as birding, hiking, fishing, kayaking and sightseeing.

Lisetbua and Albert Vamråk herring salting house are well worth a visit. In the Liset salting house one finds a herring saltery, cooper’s workshop, carpenter’s workshop and production of cod liver oil and a base for the fishery. Today, it is a “living” museum for the coastal culture. Albert Vamråk herring salting house has also been restored.

If you like fishing, then Kalvåg is an excellent place to be. Try your luck fishing at the open sea or in of the fjords. You can get a big catch both places. Deepsea fishing, or just fishing within the skerries in a smaller boat. A great experience for all «fishermen».

Vingen is one of the largest rock carvings sites in Europe. Here you will find between 1000 and 1500 figures, believed to be made by hunter gathers from the early Stone Age (approximately 4000 – 6000 years old). The deer is the most common motif, but you will also find human figures and abstract symbols. The area is protected, and only organised trips are permitted.
