This is an eclectic mix of interests on one site. The blacksmith demonstrates making small figurines (cormorants seem to be prominent) using both manual and mechanical striking. These were quite attractive, but too expensive for my budget. There is also a fair number of working...More

The smith is generally hard at work in the smithy and his artworks are beautiful! The surroundings are incredible too, among the best and lesser-known of Lofoten. There are a number of well-preserved old cottages and artifacts and the overall place is just lovely !
