In the old days Henningsvær was a natural hub of activity during the Lofoten Winter Fishery. In the 1800s, the island community prospered, and Henningsvær became one of the most prominent fishing villages in the Lofoten Islands. The islands off Henningsvær were not connected to the rest of the archipelago by bridges until 1981. Get a bird's eye view of Henningsvær.
