The Kaiser Route, which is named after German Lofoten enthusiast, Kaiser Wilhelm II, starts in Svolvær.
The underlying idea of this project is that a work of art, by its presence creates a place of its own. The sculpture also visualizes its surroundings, thus giving the place a new dimension. Artscape Nordland has also given rise to a wide ranging and important debate on contemporary art in the region.
Enjoy the Reinefjord by using the local passenger boat from Reine. In summer a perfect combination is a walk from Vindstad beside the Reinefjord to the white sandy beach called Bunesstranda. This walk takes approximately one hour each way and is very suitable for families. Bring a lunch box and enjoy it on the beach. Then you take the boat back to Reine in the afternoon. Or you can take a one-hour round trip.
The small express passenger boat between Holandshamn and Svolvær is perfect in combination with cycling in Raftsundet. The boat has departures on Wednesdays only, from Holandshamn in the morning and from Svolvær in the afternoon. Outside the summer season the boat also calls Skrova. If you want to use this boat, you must make a reservation in advance.
In summer you can also visit Raftsundet and Trollfjorden by travelling with Hurtigruten (The Norwegian Coastal Voyage) between Stokmarknes and Svolvær, or by joining one of the scheduled boat trips from Svolvær.
