Kvæfjord is a green pearl in picturesque surroundings. The municipality is known for its vibrant nature and has long agricultural traditions. One of our outward trademarks is our juicy strawberries, grown in the light from the Midnight Sun. Kvæfjord has several museums that communicate different parts of local and national history. Kvæfjord and its two adjacent fjords Austerfjorden and Gullesfjorden are good fishing fjords with sea fishing throughout the year. The borough has large woodland and mountain areas with trout and char fishing in lakes, berries and hunting. The rich bird and animal life with eagles, seals and otters make Kvæfjord an aspired venue for both bird watchers and animal lovers.
