The beginning of an adventure
In the summer of 2014 we ( two pair of brothers) went on a climbing trip to Lofoten. One of the last days on our journey we decided to visit the fishing village Henningsvær. We had heard a lot about the place known for its handcraft shops, climbing spots and beautiful nature . After some hours in Henningsvær we quickly got friends with a local guy called Sondre, a local musician singing at the pub that night. The next day he took us on a hike to a mountain called Festvågtinden. We climbed the mountain at night and were completely blown away by the view. While standing on the top of the mountain Sondre pointed down towards Henningsvær and told us about a old factory that was for sale. We immediately got exited about the thought of doing something special with this huge 2000 square meter factory. We slept on top of Festvågtinden that night. Next morning we ran down the mountain to have a look.. We met the owner to have a look at the factory. It was rustic, old machines and traces from 70 years with industrial production, ranging from shrimp peeling to carpentry. Soon our ferry went back home to the mainland. A couple of days later we had collected all our savings and bought the old factory. A new adventure had started. Without any further plans we gathered our friends and started the huge process of rebuilding the factory again. Today we have opened a bar, restaurant, café, sauna, music venue and hotel rooms. We also host a range of concerts, festivals and have close relationship to the local community. Welcome to our world at TREVAREFABRIKKEN.
