Evenes kirke

The Evenes Church was the first church in Ofoten, built about the year 1250. The original church and a subsequent church has been lost in fires; the present church is a wooden church (built in 1800) inspired by Danish Biedermeier mansion building style. Some relics from the original churches remain in the church today, most notably a stone baptismal font from the 13th century.

Gàllogieddi Outdoor Museum

At Gállogieddi, you have the chance to visit a markesámi smallholding and learn about aspects of the Sámi cultural heritage, livelihood and religion in the wooded countryside in southern Troms and northern Nordland where Sámi, who once led a semi-nomadic life with their reindeer, ultimately settled down to farm and fish. The museum tells you about the people and their history, and gives you an idea of what it was like to live here some 200 years ago.

Liland Brygge

Old coastal culture or just some coffee thirsty? You get both at Leeland brew.
