In the middle of Lofoten, between steep mountains and facing the open sea, we find the Glasblower in Vikten. Where the Norwegian sea grinds stone into beautiful sculptures, where the midnight sun colors the landscape in warm hues. In 1976 Åsvar Tangrand started with glassblowing, as the first in Northern Norway.Today the glassblowing take place in Glasshytta, a beautiful building in the middle of the magnificent scenery.
Reine center of arts and culture is situated in the centre of Reine. The centre houses a permanent gallery with pictorial artist Eva Harr’s paintings and a collection of her lithographs.
