The Lofoten Aquarium

Exciting meeting place between sea and dry land. The first aquarium in  Kabelvåg was established in 1931 and was open to the public until its closure in  1985 for safety reasons.

The present aquarium, with its unique architecture and attractive location, was opened in 1989 and attracts over 50.000 visitors annually.

 At the Lofoten Aquarium you have the chance to study our exiting marine life, with fish and sea mammals from Lofoten and the North Norwegian coastline. Here  you can explore living creatures from their habitat by the water's edge to the  deepest depths of the sea, while at the same time gaining insight into the marine ecosystem.

With its 23 large and small aquarium tanks, the Lofoten Aquarium caters for  all ranges.

You will also find:

  • Large fish aquarium
  • Seal pond
  • Otter pond
  • Multivision with music
  • Exhibitions
  • Souvenirs from the Lofoten area
  • Cafeteria serving lunch, dinner and light refreshments
