The beginning of an adventure
In the summer of 2014 we where a group of friends 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 this warm community known for its handcraft shops, climbing spots and scenic nature. After some hours in Henningsvær we quickly got friends with a local guy called Sondre Justad, he was a musician singing at the local pub that night. The next day he took os on a hike to a local mountain called Festvågtinden. We climbed the mountain in the middle of the night and were completely amazing by the beauty of this magical place. While standing on the top of the mountain he pointed down towards Henningsvær and told us about a ruined factory that was for sale. We immediately got exited about the thought of doing something special with this space. We slept on top of Festvågtinden that night and the morning after we ran down the mountain to have a look at the factory, before our boat was going back to the mainland. That night we all fell in love with Henningsvær. A couple of days later we had collected all our savings and bought the old factory. A life adventure had started. With out any further plans we gathered our friends and started the huge process of getting the factory back to life again. Today we have opened a bar, restaurant, café, sauna and some rooms for accommodation. We also host a range of concerts, festivals and have close relationship to the local community. Welcome to our world at Trevarefabrikken!
