The small town of Svolvær is one of the best whale watching spots in the world. However, it is famous not only for its nature, but also for its history. Despite the harsh climate, people settled in these parts as early as 800 BC: the abundance of fish made it possible not only to feed the family, but also to successfully develop trade. And here more than 900 years ago, the first Christian church in Northern Norway was erected.
