Seaweed harvesting by RIB boat
Weed that’s actually very good for you! We will introduce you to a natural ocean garden full of nutritious sea plants. You will get to learn and experience the seaweed from foraging to tasting.
On this tour, we will introduce you to a natural flavour enhancer from the ocean. You will harvest and unpack your own seaweed directly from the fresh Lofoten waters.
The tour will start with meeting our Guide at Å Rorbuer Reception. From there on, you are in our professionals' hands. The guide will prepare you for the tour, and before heading out to the seaweed harvesting shores by boat, we will provide you with the necessary equipment for staying dry and be safe and comfortable in the water.
After we have harvested seaweed, we show you how the seaweed is dried and prepared for serving in dishes. The trip ends with a tasty meal made of homemade pasta & Lofotens nutritious seaweed.
