Vegaøyan World Heritage area

Visit the World Heritage exhibition in Nes

You can explore Vega’s heritage in many ways: In the fishing harbour in Nes you can visit E-huset, a museum with a World Heritage exhibition documenting the importance of the eider duck in the island’s history. In the harbour, next to Vegabue Kafé, you will find an exhibition with a shop about the remote island of Lånan. In Lånan you can stay with the bird-keepers.
