This fishing village occupies several islands, and for this reason was dubbed the "Venice of the Lofoten". Colourful houses, rorbuer (huts), timber warehouses on stilts, and a setting in which the sea is omnipresent all come together to make this an attractive place. You can wander about the fish dryers, before taking in some of the art galleries. Henningsvær is one of the liveliest towns in the Lofoten islands.
