Attraction along Lofoten

Eggum

The fishing village of Eggum lies on the seaward side of Vestvågøy island, alone between the ocean and the mountains. The place attracts numerous visitors who come to experience the midnight sun. Facing the open ocean is a rest area in the shape of an amphitheatre with a car park and service facilities. On the west side of the car park stands an intricate artwork by Marcus Raetz: a head looking out over the sea with the top either down or up, depending on your angle of vision.
