‘The ocean is so rich, so fertile. If you throw out a line, even if you do so from the quay, you risk catching your own dinner.’
Svein Inge Fosse smiles from ear to ear. He is host at Knutholmen, the tourism gem of Kalvåg – said to be the biggest and best preserved fishing village in Fjord Norway. When he turned the five rooms above his little café into accommodation for visitors in 1985, it heralded the start of a fantastic development and restoration process in what has been a hub throughout history for fishermen along the coast of Fjord Norway. Kalvåg is now a gem out at the ocean’s edge for visitors looking for recreation, in summer and winter alike, and it is well worth a visit whether you like fish or not.
