Henningsvær, which calls itself the Venice of the Lofoten, is a village with several small islands off the southwestern tip of Austvågøy in the north of Norway,

connected to the larger island by a series of bridges.

With the mountain at its back and otherwise surrounded by the sea, Henningsvær was a natural hub of activity during the Lofoten Winter Fishery.

In the 1800s, the island community prospered, and Henningsvær became one of the most prominent fishing villages in Lofoten.
