What to see in Stokmarknes

Visiting Stokmarknes and its surroundings is not just about checking off tourist attractions but about immersing oneself in the timeless essence of Norway.

As the birthplace of the iconic Hurtigruten Coastal Express, a visit to Stokmarknes would be incomplete without delving into the history and significance of this maritime legend. The Hurtigruten Museum offers visitors an insightful journey into the story of the coastal ferry service that has connected Norway's coastal towns since 1893. Within its confines, you can explore an authentic old ship, MS Finnmarken, and learn about the challenges and triumphs of its voyages. Interactive exhibits, historical photographs and personal narratives breathe life into the tales, making it a captivating experience for maritime enthusiasts and history buffs alike.

Not far from the port stands the Hadsel Church, an embodiment of Norway's rich architectural history. The original church was built in the 12th century, though the current structure dates back to the 1800s. Its white wooden walls and steeple, set against the backdrop of the azure fjord and majestic mountains, make for a picturesque sight. Inside, the tranquillity is palpable, with beautifully crafted wooden interiors and ornate carvings. The church grounds also serve as a peaceful spot for reflection, offering panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Whether you're drawn to its architectural charm or the spiritual serenity it offers, Hadsel Church is a testament to Norway's enduring bond with its traditions.

A short drive or a pleasant ferry ride from Stokmarknes will bring you to the charming village of Melbu, another jewel in the Vesterålen archipelago. Here, the Melbu Farm Museum gives you a snapshot of life in the olden days. Spread across several traditional buildings, including an old farmhouse, barn and boathouse, the museum showcases daily life from the 1800s through the 20th century. The artefacts, ranging from farming tools to household items, paint a vivid picture of the rustic, self-sufficient lifestyle of the past.
