Sund is one of the oldest fishing communities in Lofoten and is situated on the most southerly point of Flakstad island.
The surrounding area boasts powerful and diverse landscapes with a rich array of bird life and a plentiful supply of fish in the seas around. The active fishing community is built up around a large, natural harbour and has approx. 100 inhabitants with its own convenience store.
In the vicinity lies the ‘Sund Fishing Museum’ with the old ‘Rorbua’ and a section dedicated to antique boat motors. Also situated in the building is the blacksmith of Sund which is famous for its handmade cormorants. This is one of the most popular attractions in Lofoten, receiving up to 30 000 visitors over the summer months.
Sund offers excellent fishing potentials with the possibilities for small boat rental. Organized tours in commercial boats head out to the open waters for deep sea fishing. In addition to these activities, the village is a remarkable starting point for hunting and freshwater fishing, mountain trips and other activities further described in our website.
