The day began a bit blustery with light rain as we approached Vega Island, the largest island in Vegaøyan (Vega Archipelago) consisting of over 6,000 islands. Since 2004, Vega Island has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Known for its historical harvest and use of eider down, Vega Island has been occupied by humans since the Stone Age and today has a little over 2200 inhabitants. The weather improved as the morning progressed which made the several outings we had planned all the more pleasant for our guests. Activities included hiking, historical walks, and nature-based excursions, all of which ended at the relatively new World Heritage Center situated right on the water. There we took in the museum displays and experienced a traditional Norwegian waffle tea service, which was a real highlight. By mid-afternoon we set sail for our next destination.
