Overview

A visit to northern Norway`s best preserved trading post is a journey back in time. Here you can feel the past, with "jektefart" and fish trading, Herring and the daily life in northern Norway coastal communities in the 19 century. Kjerringoy Trading Post is a unique example of coastal heritage set in magnificent scenery. It consists of 15 old buildings retaining many of their original contents. It is one of the country's most important collections of buildings from the nineteenth century. The beautiful slide-show "Anna Elisabeth of Kjerringoy" provides an excellent introduction to a visit. It lasts about 20 minutes. Guided tours are then available around the various yards and buildings. You can shop in the store ("Kramboden") or enjoy refreshments in Nyfjosen Cafe or in the garden. In the museumshop in Nyfjosen you can buy gifts and souvernirs, local design and crafts.

During winter time, there's no one and you can walk around the island enjoying the beautiful views without seeing other people. It's a beautiful place, also to drive around by car because it's in between stunning rough mountains. In summer there are guided tours, in...More

The Trading Post is set in an idyllic unique coastal landscape. Breathtaking scenery, with clear water where you can if in luck spot many small fish and crabs. The outdoor area that consists of 15 historical buildings is always available to the public, which means...More

Went there with young children, a bit skeptical if this would generate interests . Took the guided tour in the main building, and the stories and experience caught us all. The 45 min tour could have been twice as long and still there would be...More

Nice landscape between Bødo and Kjerringoy well worth the trip. Trading post is well restored but in winter everything is closed down so don't expect a lot of entertainment except for what nature has to offer. Be aware that you have to take a short...More

A beautiful place to trot around, absorb the wealth that provided for the large timber constructed buildings. No surprise that this place frequent Norwegian films.
