In the lush countryside of Kvæfjord you will find the
Rå Gardening School, with plants specially adapted to
the Arctic climate. You can visit Hemmestad Wharf
which is a former trading post where time has stood
still for almost 200 years. In Kvæfjord you will also
find the Trastad Collection, where you can visit an
authentic residential and care facility from 1966.
Today the institution is a museum; visit a unique
collection of art in the only gallery in Norway
exhibiting art created by people with mental
disabilities. We recommend having lunch at the
beautiful Røkenes Farm, dating back to 1750, before
returning to your ship.
