Kalvåg is a small fishing community located at the southern entrance to the Nordfjorden on the island of Frøya with the North Sea as its neighbour in the west and Stadt to the north.
Probably the best kept fishing village in western Norway, Kalvåg is a vibrant collection of old waterfront buildings which have been restored and converted to provide unique accommodation. Clustered around the bay the sea houses are full of atmosphere.
The Vamråk Salting House Museum in the village formerly housed a copper smiths, a carpenter’s shop, salt herring and cod liver oil production and was also a base for local fishermen. Today the original tools and equipment lie about, creating an impression that
workers from the early post-war years have just taken a five minute break before returning to their labours.
Kalvåg is famous for its excellent seafood and there is no better place to enjoy it than the beautiful setting of the Knutholmen Restaurant next to the sea. Knutholmen’s excellent chefs prepare wonderful seafood dishes in the atmospheric restaurant or on an excursion to a spectacular location in the region.
There is is much to do in the region with many attractions nearby such as Grotlesanden beach, the highest sea cliff in Europe Hornelen, rock carvings at Vingen, and the old trading stations
of Rugsund and Smørhamn. Or simply visit the local galleries and immerse yourself in the art and crafts of Kalvåg.
