Once a year in late winter the great wonder happens! The sprawning cod – skrei or North Atlantic Cod – comes from the Barents sea to the coast of Norway. This happening has always been of great importance for people on the islands of Vikna – both because of the possibility of acheiving such delicious food and as an important source of income. There is no other place south of the Lofoten Islands where the fishing for this cod has been more important, and the skrei is still greatly valued by people here. We have therefore decided to celebrate the arrival of the sprawning cod with a culinary and cultural festival – please feel welcome and be our guest!
